The Laguna LT14SE is a quiet, powerful machine that makes the most demanding curve and resaw cuts with ease. It’s the only saw of the bunch that came fully assembled. Fit and finish are excellent with large knobs to adjust tension and tracking, though the table could use a bit more width to the right of the blade. The machine does not have a tension scale, so you have to test the blade tension using a gauge or your finger. Ceramic guides offer support very close to the top of a workpiece. The insert plate is large, and its throat provides wide-open access to the guide adjusters below the table, all of which make blade changes easy as pie.
