Laguna Tools' 14|12 Bandsaw

A new Laguna Tools Bandsaw designed for serious woodworking hobbyists at an affordable price debuted at the AWFS Fair in Las Vegas, July 24-27.

“We felt strongly that just because most people aren’t professional woodworkers, doesn’t mean they shouldn’t have access to top quality equipment,” said Benjamin Helshoj, Sales Manager (Wholesale Division) at Laguna Tools – a leading creator and distributor of top quality woodworking equipment. “After more than two years of development and production, we’re proud to offer the 14|12 Bandsaw that fits both a woodworker’s budget and garage perfectly.”

According to Helshoj, the company may have kept the retail cost very low at just $1,400, but they didn’t scrimp on its robust specifications. “The Laguna Tools 14|12 Bandsaw is engineered to very exacting standards, including brass-tipped lock handle for the rip fence, Euro-style adjustable hinges, tracking and tension windows, an oversized table and heavy duty trunnion, just to name a few.” He added that the 14|12 Bandsaw is also wired for any 110-volt outlet instead of 220.

Helshoj said the company also decided early in the development stages of the Laguna Tools 14|12 Bandsaw that there would be no compromising in the fit n’ finish department, either.

The idea was to give woodworking enthusiasts a chance to advance their craft with a truly impressive bandsaw in keeping with the Laguna Tools tradition for quality, appearance and technological advances – but without cutting into a hobbyists’ budget. We believe that we accomplished both goals with the 14|12 Bandsaw.”
