Rikon 10-325 Deluxe 14" Bandsaw on sale - 1 reply
FWIW …..... Woodcraft has the Rikon 14” Bandsaw on sale for $799 until end of March. Got mine on sale for about $649 (GLOAT) a couple of years ago. It is a great BS and resaws up to about 13” w/o riser blocks. WC also has their Timberwolf BS blades on sale for 15% off. The Rikon comes with a really crap blade. Good Luck!
