In the times of yore, few and far between were the locales whence one could retire to a library or drawing room replete with rich, supple leather chairs; fine, aged scotch; and an atmosphere heavy with the redolent airs of a well rolled Cuban cigar…
The Laguna 18-36 does not fit into the previous tableau, because the aforementioned tableau is in fact a metaphor for the countless hours of contemplative relaxation garnered from turning beautiful spindles or bowls on this fine workhorse of a machine. This is a Heavy duty lathe, built solid to handle anything that can fit its capacities. Exceptional quality is encountered right out of the box. Precise machining and smooth action will be some of the first words that come to mind when you allow your eyes to feast upon the visual magnificence that is this machine. What more can I say? The parts that are supposed to move, move well. The parts that aren’t supposed to move, don’t. This thing is HEAVY, which is what you want in a lathe. It is also sleek: like a sports car. Add the mobility kit and you will find it handles well even in the tightest of workshops. Couldn’t ask for a better machine.
But hey, let’s talk about the fine purveyors of the machine for a second. Beyond the machine, the quality of service when you purchase from Black Forest is impeccable. The staff are friendly, knowledgeable, and patient. They ask the questions you might not anticipate when looking for a lathe; with the ultimate goal of hammering down on what the most suitable machine for YOU is.
You may have tried the rest, now try the best. Buy a Laguna lathe, and buy it from Black Forest. Right now. You’ll be doubling down on your wood-turning satisfaction by doing so. Trust your old pal Rabo.
