For a limited time, Rockler has a 10% discount on Laguna and Supermax tools and accessories!
I’ve been slowly upgrading my woodworking tools, most recently taking advantage of an Acme Tools promo to get a Jet dust collector, and this promo was just the thing to push me into buying a 14″ bandsaw.
I am more in need of a table saw and a jointer (less so, and I’m still indecisive about whether I should get a benchtop model or find the floor space for a bigger one), but discovering the deal had me taking a closer look at Laguna’s 14|12 and 14bx bandsaw offerings.
I flip-flopped and ultimately decided on the Laguna 14|12. I actually placed an order for the 14bx first, but then back-tracked.
They say that sale prices are valid from 8/31 thru 9/27 2018, but I can’t find any confirmation of that.
Shop Now(Rockler Deal) – I coded the link with a free shipping code (for orders $35+), in case you want to shop for something else.
The bandsaw has an added $75 freight fee, and the same looks to be true of other Laguna equipment.
I’m really excited now. I’ve been trying to rip thin cuts on a portable table saw, but it’s been challenging. Forget about resawing.
This obviously isn’t a deal that everyone can take advantage. How often does one buy woodworking shop tools? But I thought it was worth sharing. A recent Acme Tools Jet promo pushed me off the fence to buy a dust collector, and this deal pushed me to get a floor-standing 14″ band saw.
Laguna is one of those brands that’s often price-fixed and excluded from all other promos, such as Acme Tools’ ongoing Labor Day sale.
I’m still surprised by my decision to go with the 14|12. I’ve heard a lot of bad things about Laguna in recent years, but despite all that, the 14|12 seems to be a very popular bandsaw, and there are lots of comments about Laguna quickly responding to customer service inquiries and requests.
I’ve been afraid to buy any new equipment in recent years, resulting from the very many negative feedback I’ve heard about. But the fact of the matter is that I’m not prepared to buy the “best of the best,” nor do I have the space for a lot of heavy equipment.
Deals like this one helped me get over that hurdle.
Now, I have 2 months to find the space for a table saw (I’m thinking SawStop), and maybe a jointer (Powermatic 6″?).
If you’re looking to buy any Laguna woodworking power tools and miss out on this sale, it’ll likely come back around Black Friday.
As far as I can tell, this deal is only happening at Rockler. I haven’t purchased any big equipment from them yet, and so I’m hoping this will be a good experience. The bandsaw is being drop-shipped from Laguna, and lift gate service is available with no added fee (aside from the $75).
