I went to look for SCM pricing because that would be a consideration for me. Couldn't get to a price, and the information on SCM's site was kind of lean. I assume the prices are premium.
When I visited the Laguna facility, they had a large number of their premium, Italian made saws on display, up to 36 inches, and I would be hard pressed to find anything better built. And you can get all kinds of information from them. I already have a Laguna 14-12 and really love it, and for someone with a 110 v only shop, I would be less inclined to go with the 220v machine. Lots of things to consider before spending big bucks.
The more I do, the less I accomplish.
