The Laguna 14|CX Band Saw adds electronic variable speed to the popular 14|BX. It's ideal for craftsmen who work in both wood and metal. Some key features are the patented disc brakes that stop momentum almost instantaneously and a strong, smooth-running BLDC motor.

The DRO (Digital Readout) provides a quick and easy reference for blade speeds. The DRO displays in "SFPM" (surface feet per minute). This is the speed that the teeth of the blade are moving. This number can be set by using a blade speed chart for the specific blade and material being used to achieve high quality cuts in a wide range of materials. 

The 2-step pulley provides a mechanical High and Low range to keep the bandsaw in the correct torque range for the blade speed and materials being cut. The belt position should be set first and then the final speed should be set by turning the speed control knob. The pulleys use a poly-groove drive belt to prevent slipping even when cutting the toughest materials.

The speed control knob can be used to change the speed on the fly if needed, meaning that you can increase or decrease speed during the cut to optimize the performance of the blade in the specific material being cut. It is conveniently located on the control panel adjacent to the DRO display.

Electronic speed control is provided by the PWM system (pulse width modulation) which uses an inverter to control the output to the powerful DC motor. This system has the added benefit of quickly stopping the motor and wheels when shut off.

Comes standard with a Laguna Bi-Metal 1/2” x 10/14 Variable TPI Blade.

Optional Blades:

  • Resaw KingCarbide-tipped resaw blades. The carbide tips outlast standard blades many times over and can be re-sharpened. The profile of the carbide tipped teeth is optimized to provide a thin kerf and smooth finish cuts in woods. A 3/4" blade width is recommended for resawing on the 14|CX Band Saw.
  • Pro-Force BladesSwedish silicon steel blades with heat-treated teeth and rear surface (on wider blades). The Pro-Force Blades out perform standard carbon steel blades. These blades are available in a wide range of widths and TPI. The narrowest blades are used for tight curved work. The medium widths are perfect for gentle curves, light weight straight cuts, and general purpose work. Higher tooth counts provide smoother cuts and are required for thinner stock. Lower tooth counts provide faster cutting, rougher surface, and are better for thicker stock.

  • Cast-iron wheels are balanced and provide plenty of inertia to drive the blade through the material being cut
  • Oversized shafts with sealed bearings protect the flywheels
  • Laguna Ceramic Guides have a total of 10 contact points above and below the work piece for precise cuts. The ceramic inserts handle heat better than traditional metal bearings and are easily replaceable
  • Foot brake system uses a larger brake disc to provide more stopping power to handle the higher speeds and additional inertia of the heavier pulleys
  • Dual dust collection ports provide collection just under the table surface and lower guides as well as collection at the bottom of the cabinet
  • Table tilts both toward the inside and the outside of the saw to make accurate beveled cuts in a wide range of materials
  • Clear windows for easily setting blade tracking and tension
  • Magnetic tensioning indicator is easy to adjust to help accurately set blade tension for all types of blades
  • Hi/Low fence is easily changed from the High Position (used for resawing and most thicker materials) and the Low Position (used for thinner stock or when making thin cuts)
  • Blade tension set via convenient handwheel
  • Worm-drive rack and pinion upper guidepost is easily positioned and locked in place to fit the size of the materials being cut
