Turning Archive 2007
Seems like my Bandsaw (Laguna LT-18) motor is more and more gutless. Takes longer to get up to speed with no load and loses power easier when sawing under load esp. sawing thick and/or wet stock, even with a fresh new blade.I do have a fair number of hours on it.
I guess my question(s)are: does a motor lose power like this before total burnout? Should I upgrade to a bigger, badder motor? Three phase is not an option. Recommendations? Laguna is hideoulsly expensive on parts in my experience.
Thanks in advance...
