Laguna 14 | BX Bandsaw
Laguna 14 | BX Bandsaw

There's always things we want or need. For now I only have one listed... But creating a list that explains the purpose and justifies the expense has always been a motivating tool for me.

Tools
Who doesn't want more tools!? I think it's important to know what you're buying and if its the best value. Buying the best of the best isn't always the best.
Products
Small expenses add up quick. Is there a work around? Can you make something to fill the need or is it absolutely necessary?
Electronics
As a content creator there is always new electronics out there that are the latest and greatest. It's a rabbit hole that is never ending and always changing direction.
Shop Needs
My shop space doesn't get a lot of love. I've got a huge list of needed upgrades that rarely get addressed. The ultimate goal is a new shop but until then here's whats needed.

I constantly design and plan projects around the fact I do not own a bandsaw. This has been a bit of a hinderance considering many of the ideas I have are simply impossible to accomplish without a large bandsaw.

There are quite a few saws I drool over. I'd love to own an old Delta 20" but realistically it wouldn't fit in the space and just isn't practical. Here are a few factors I considered before finally settling on the Laguna 14 | BX
 
Price: Unfortunately cost dictates every decision in my life. A cost of $1500 + tax (using Amazon Prime you can get free shipping) brings it to $1,588.94 delivered to my doorstep.
(If you decide to buy on Amazon you can use this affiliate link https://amzn.to/2qEWuPl it doesn't cost you anything and gives me a small % of the sell as a commission)

Power: The 14|BX comes with two power options a 110v and a 220v the price difference (Nov. 2018) is $100
110v - 1.75 HP, 14 Amp Motor
220v - 2.5HP, 9.8 Amp Motor
The 220v option requires a 220v outlet and typically it's own circuit from your electric panel.

Resaw Capacity: 12"
I have a Woodmizer LT15 Portable Bandsaw Mill which can process all my bulk lumber needs, however If a log is too small you simply can't cut it on the mill. I need something that can bridge this gap and I feel 12" will suffice.

Conclusion
At the end of the day I truly want the 14 | BX It meets my space, cost and criteria however it's hard not to look at the Grizzly G0513ANV - 17" 2 HP Bandsaw which has a slightly smaller motor (2 HP)  but the same resaw capacity of 12" and is currently on sale for $899 (Nov 2018) .... Decisions
