Laguna Tools - Poor Quality Tool
12" Disk Sander - Complaint
IRVINE, CALIFORNIA -- I Purchased a 16"bandsaw from Laguna tools about five years ago and was very pleased with it, quality and performance. I recently purchased a 12" disk sander and was expecting around the same quality, boy was I disappointed. Poor quality castings random holes drilled for no purpose, a no name motor, a plastic miter gauge, yes plastic like something from a child's toy. Its an over priced middle of the road sander with a Laguna sticker on it.
I would like to know if they have ever unpacked one and looked, much better work is being done in Asia, the competition has found it, why hasn't Laguna. I have been a full time wood artist for 32 years.
