    Thanks all for the replies! I will go ahead and reach out to your sales team. I used to own a laguna bandsaw in Vancouver, BC, and it was a great machine.

    Hi All - I'm looking at buying some Laguna machines, was just wondering from current owners in the UK, what the after sales service is like and availability of parts? I'm looking at getting a bandsaw, table saw, sander and dust extractors from them. Any info appreciated!

    Union Jubilee advice

    I just bought an old Union Jubilee lathe, and was hoping someone out there has some knowledge of these old machines. Firstly, what is the best way to change speeds?
