I have and LOVE my 1412. The construction is amazingly solid, bearings that won't quit, Fit and finish is as nice as its performance. I've had it for a little over a year. I also got a Resaw King blade, which does and exceptional job. I also got mine on sale at Rockler.
I'm old, but using the video online about assembling it, I was easily able to assemble. Hint, don't be too quick to take the main part out of the foam packing. It's easier to move into position that way. You should also have a couple of 2x6s on hand to use during assembly.
I also had the Delta bandsaw, but it's a toy compared to the 1412. I fell for it when a friend and I went down to Laguna's HQ. He's an engineer and was totally impressed and bought the 20 inch.
I also bought a half, 3/8ths and 1/4 blade for it. Since then they introduced a model with a footbreak, but it is rather pricey for that feature. The 1412 winds down fairly slowly when you hit the off switch but it's not bad. I didn't buy the light, but did get the rolling base. Here's a picture of the way I set up a light. There are four pre-drilled holes, so I attached the light there. There's a plug for the light on the back of the spine. I used a 50w equivalent LED you see in the picture, and it really illuminates the blade area. I spent $12 for the goose neck lamp.
The Laguna fence is a dual purpose one. A low fence one way, turn it and it's a tall fence. Veddy clever. There are a number of other worthy saws, but for me, the Laguna outshines them all on sheer workmanship alone. Latuna set out to rule this class and they succeeded.
I also have a Laguna Fusion saw, when I assembled it, one wing was a tiny bit warped, so I called and they said, bring the saw in. I did and when I arrived, they'd assembled and set up a brand new saw! And then they used their machined steel straight edges and tested for flatness! You're not going to find a better saw in its class or better support. It has pretty much set the standard. On sale, its maybe 200-250 more than other 14 inchers, but to me, its worth every cent. Having compared it to Jet and Rikon, there was not much question about preference. You've probably read the reviews, most of which are sterling.
In other words, no hesitation on recommending the 1412. But do look up the assembly videos, it will make setup easy.
You will love working with it. I got $325 for the old Delta and a bunch of accessories and blades. Sorry the picture is sideways. I have no idea how to straighten it out.
