The Laguna 18|BX Bandsaw follows in the traditions of high-performance and reliability established by the widely-used Laguna Tools 14|12 and 14|bx models. The Laguna 18|BX band saw is built around a 3HP, 220V motor and 145” (368 cm) blade for consistent results, cut-after-cut, regardless of material.
With a resaw capacity of 16”, this scaled up version of the best selling bandsaw shares all of the unique features and finishing touches which made the smaller brother an award winner. Designed to be tough enough to handle the daily jobs in any professional workshop.
A foot switch and disc braking system has also been added to more conveniently stop the saw and bring the motor to a virtually instantaneous rest.
These high-end features include a pyramid shaped spine that minimises any frame distortion when the blade is fully tensioned, ensuring cutting accuracy.
One of the most distinctive advantages of the Laguna bandsaw range over all other brands is the famous ceramic blade guide system. They create 10 points of contact on the blade allowing easy set up and highly accurate cuts even when re-sawing deep timber. Using long life ceramic guides allows for a much larger blade contact area than traditional bearing guides. The result is more support for the blade and greater cutting accuracy.
The braked motor provides enough power to operate at the full 16” cutting depth. There is a quick blade release tension lever that makes blade changing faster and this is complimented with an easy to view blade tension scale indicator to easily ensure correct tension set up.
The micro polished cast iron table is mounted onto an oversized double cast iron trunnion with two locking points that ensure there is a solid surface to work from. The table tilts to 45 degrees with a positive Stop at 90°. A flip plate allows reverse tilt up to 7 degrees when required. In the centre of the table is an anodised aluminium throat plate with 4 adjusting screws to ensure a perfect flush fit.
The parallel fence runs smoothly along a polished solid steel bar. The locking screw is fitted with a brass end to ensure a positive lock which will not let you down and creep during repeat work. The measuring scale is marked in both Inches and MM. The rigid aluminium high/low fence ensures full and precise timber support for both large and small work pieces.
Solid cast iron wheels are electronically / dynamically balanced & fitted with polyurethane one-piece tyres designed to run cooler & last longer than conventional tyres. The worm gear & pinion on the blade guard is ultra-smooth and engineered to have minimum flex even when fully extended.
Double windows allow you to check both tension & tracking while the machine is running. There is a premium anodized aluminium throat plate with fine adjustment for ultimate accuracy.
The Laguna 18|BX Bandsaw is fitted with a foot operated disc brake system. Pressing the foot pedal firstly cuts power to the motor and secondly activates the disc brake to bring the saw to a virtually instantaneous stop.
Efficient dust extraction is achieved by using two x 100mm (4″) diameter outlets. One is located just underneath the table with a deflector that sends the dust into the collection port, before it comes into contact with the lower wheel and other moving parts – extending their lifespan. The second is located in the more traditional place at the base of the cabinet.
