Just be aware some parts have changed. My LS12 is so old the spec of the feed rod and the size of the shaft on the feed motor had all changed. Jim (at Lortone) warned me I might have to get the coupler from the motor shaft to the feed rod drilled out to accomodate the new motor shaft size.

These lists are great, but nothing beats a good relation with the techs at the factory.

I have their manuals for my 12" and 14" and they are quite useful. The factory personnel are very helpful, too. I just wish they built a sturdier carriage and crossfeed mechanism so I wouldn't have to use their services as often!

I second the weak carriage / cross feed problem. I have a ls 14 and have had to tweak the carriage and cross feed several times. I think the 14 feed motor is a little fast as well for a cheep $100 blade. Anyone with the LS 14 have a nice blade with good effect they could recommend for me?

When I got my 14" it was billed as a "High Speed" saw which meant they sped up the blade and feed and put a top of the line blade on it. All it accomplished was to constantly bind the blade and trip the overload switch. I slowed down the feed and blade speed and now it works as a saw should.
