First of all, it’s still under warr. Just call them and send them the pic. I have a 1412 but can’t really see what you are showing. The pic is zoomed and turned.

I agree with Andy—you should definitely go through Laguna support. I also have a 1412.

Is the damage on your saw related to the tension quick release arm—or item #24 in the diagram Andy provided?
I can see what appears to be a broken bolt or screw in the picture you provided. I would guess that #24 has broken off of part #21. Maybe some corrosion/rust formed in there and when you went to put tension on the blade the arm could not handle the extra friction and snapped? Just a guess.

Oh. Now I see. Looks like that eccentric should be attached to the bolt that looks sheared off. If that’s the case it would have taken a LOT of pressure on that bolt to shear it. I’d bet that even if it’s not under warr. they would replace it. They’re pretty good about standing behind their stuff.

Thanks for the feedback, I was able to get ahold of Laguna and sent the picture over. Great news they helping me out and my new tension arm should be here shortly.
