The Laguna JX|6 QuadTec I is loaded with features to make jointing safer and more enjoyable.
The QuadTec I cuttherhead comes as standard equipment on the new JX-6. The QuadTec I produces an amazing surface finish on all woods including difficult hardwoods. The QuadTec I uses 4-sided carbide insert knives that are quieter and much more durable compared to straight HSS knives. The 4-sided knives can be rotated for a new cutting edge without the need for a knife setting jig.
Parallelogram Table Adjustments - Table depth adjustments travel along an arc to keep the same distance to the cutterhead through its travel
Emergency “Knee-Stop” - The new knee stop uses a body-length bar at knee height to shut off the JX jointer. This important safety feature allows the machine operator to stop the machine quickly at any position along the front of the machine while keeping hands on the workpiece
New Ergonomic Machine Body - The new JX Series machine body has been redesigned with a “toe-kick” to allow the user to position themselves closer to the machine tables and to move safer and easier along the length of the machine
In-feed Support Roller - Infeed tables are now fitted with pull out support roller to help support longer materials
Built-In Wheels - No need to purchase a separate mobility kit

The base has wheels on it with no adjustment for leveling. My base wheels are not close to level and the only way to keep it from rocking back and forth was to put it on blocks which takes away the ability to easily roll it around.
Good Product, terrible customer service
So they have a solid product. Build quality is very good. Now here’s the but. Customer service for Laguna is beyond crappy. Had a lot of issues getting to their customer support. They are severely understaffed and don’t expect them to get back to you in less than a couple weeks. Fir that very reason I can’t recommend. It’s too bad, they have a quality product, but I’ll never purchase from them again.
