This is my next featured equipment in my new book so I am excited to get started with it. I know Tolben and Cathrine Helshoj who own Laguna Tools in California from my different times in the USA and I managed to team up with them at the AWFS Fair 2011 a couple of months ago.
I have been looking for a premier yet practical bandsaw for some time but couldn’t find exactly what I wanted here in the UK and then I talked with Jay Andrews from Laguna. The Laguna bandsaw he described seemed to be precisely the one I needed as it was one that had substantial resaw capabilities with superb and accurate adjustment and bags of safety features. Laguna fit the bill and ticked all the boxes so Joseph, John and I unloaded our new bandsaw into the shop.
We met the truck at the gate and made certain it could get under the port at the main entrance. This machine is compact but no means lightweight so it took four of us to get it beyond the castle walls and into the New Legacy School workshop.
