3rd time’s a charm, the 2nd replacement table is FLAT :)

But, there’s still an issue… the blade should pass through the center of the blue aluminum table insert, but instead, it “hugs” the left side. Initially it was actually rubbing against the insert, but after removing the table I was able to loosen the bolts that secure the lower trundle assembly and had enough play to get a little less than a 3/32” gap between the blade and the left side of the insert. It’s fine until you tilt the table to 45 degrees and then the table hits the blade.

I sent pics to Laguna and they are going to send me a replacement lower trunion assembly, determining that the bolt holes on mine are not elongated enough to give me the left/right adjustment I need. By the way, Laguna has not asked for me to send back the 2 defective tables I have, or the lower trunion assembly they are replacing.

I have to say that despite all of the problems I had, I would buy a Laguna tool again without hesitation. Even the best cars in the world have product recalls, so it’s unrealistic to expect perfection, especially in a new model. The important thing is whether the company stands behind the product and supports it fully.

When I was deciding on which saw to buy, I did alot of research and was familiar with Laguna’s reputation for quality. But I had read more than a few complaints regarding customer service which concerned me. In my opinion, the support I received with this couldn’t have been better, and I wouldn’t have any concerns purchasing Laguna tools in the future.
