I've been looking at purchasing an 18 inch Italian bandsaw. I've talked with salesmen at Laguna Tools and Wilke (Bridgewood.) They both have the same saw with slightly different specs manufactured by the same company. Both salesmen insist that their particular saw is superior to the other saw (frame strength, fence quality, blade guide accuracy, ... etc.) In fact, each salesmen accused the other of lying. Somewhere between is the truth and I seek it. Which is the better saw? Or are they the same? The Bridgewood is $300 less than the Laguna Tools.
