Hi everyone!
I was hoping to get some input on what band saw users would recommend for a 14” band saw.

I’m looking at the Laguna 1412 and the scorpion 14 delux. Both are 1.75 hp.

I can hook up 220v but I don’t want to go over $1500 Canadian.

Thanks for all the input!!

In my opinion look no farther (further?) than the 1412. If you’re gonna resaw spend the $ and get their Resaw King blade. Love the saw and the customer service.

Cut cocobolo like butter.

My small bandsaw is the Powermatic pwbs-14. For resawing over 6 or 7 inches I use a much bigger saw bandsaw.

I own, use and endorse the Laguna 14/12 bandsaw. I resaw hardwoods with it mostly and I haven’t had any problems.

Thanks Aj and Art
I was leaning towards the Laguna before hand so I will probably be ordering one shortly.

Have your say...
