Laguna Tools has updated its Fusion 10” table saw, which comes standard with either a 36” or 52” rip capacity. It features a 1-3/4-hp motor and operates on 110-volt power.
Sales manager Benjamin Helshoj says the name Fusion represents a cross between a contractor’s saw and a cabinet saw, typically referred to as a hybrid. He says similar hybrids usually have a smaller body that justifies their lower cost and that this is a full-body machine that can still be found at a price similar to competing models.
“This saw works like any other table saw. It runs off of 110-volt power, which is basically available in any garage or shop. The cutting is very accurate because the trunnion is not attached to the tabletop, but is mounted onto the frame like a real cabinet saw to ensure stability,” he says.
The table top is made of premium grade cast iron, heat-treated and ground to a mirror-like flat surface, perfect for precise cuts, according to Helshoj. The saw includes a 20” x 27” main table with two 3/4” x 3/8” miter slots and two 10” x 27” cast iron wings.
The fence rides on the front and back of the saw, never touching the table, giving operators a smooth transition from one measurement to another. The 4” dust port allows operators to attach a dust collection system to keep their work environment clean, Helshoj says.
The 36” model sells for $1,295, while the 52” costs $1,395.
