Laguna bandsaw guides
Jul 31st, 2017 at 9:57pm
 
For those of you that have a Laguna bandsaw and hate the guides there is good news. I have the 18" and have disliked the saw from the get go because of the crappy guides. I never could properly get them adjusted and the bottom guides are the worst. I looked at Carter products for replacement and found none on there web site for the Laguna but for some reason I thought I would call them anyhow. Guess what... they do have new guides for the Laguna but they are not on there web site yet. I got them  and they are easy too install. The adjustment, while not the easiest,  are a great deal better than the Laguna ceramic guides. The people at Carter Products are absolutely great to work with. Maybe many of you know that.
Cheers to all

Same here.  I was frustrated that they didn't have guides for my Grizzly but called and they said that for my saw, they're the same guides as found on one of the Jets.  The installation took some fiddling but worked great once installed and so much easier to adjust the OEM.

+1 on that statement.

I put their guides on my 14" Grizzly and was very pleased with them.
