Dedvw – no prob, in my particular case the one white piece of the guide was not glued flush into the aluminum housing like the others. The rep suggested if I wanted to fix it to heat it to melt the glue move and reglue it. Obviously this would totally mess up the blue paint… The replacements are not expensive and come in the aluminum housing, so nothing to worry about there. There is also almost no visible wear at all after a month.

Scomel Basses – I don’t know which base would be better your HTC or the laguna, do you feel the HTC is heavy duty enough?. If you have the chance to buy this from an actual retail store I would suggest you go and try moving it around first then decide, but do keep in mind they will probably have a smooth floor, and see what I mean by tipping it. You could always buy the base after trying your existing base on the new bandsaw first. The only good thing about the 3 wheel system is you can raise and lower it without bending over and just use your foot that’s a real bonus. Mind you a 4 wheel system could do the same thing with an attaching plate between the two. Rubber wheels would of been nice on this.
