The 16 inch Laguna (Italian made) is a dream machine. A friend and I went down to Laguna and he bought one there. Incredible engineering in that thing. But too rich for my occasional-user blood. The 14/twelve is an excellent machine for the money, takes a 3/4 inch resaw blade and cuts straight up to 13 inches high. Not cheap compared to a couple of other bandsaws, but I think from my research that it is far and away the best machine for the money. Of course, there are differing opinions, but this is mine.
The more I do, the less I accomplish.
