I sure have been kicking myself lately as the 14”Rikon deluxe bandsaw was on sale at my local woodcraft before Christmas for about 50 bucks more than I have invested in my 15 year old Delta… I have been successful at cutting through most of the small nails that get in my way with out damaging the blades too much on the band saw. My main worry of course is the jointer and planer…

My main issues are the weight of the pieces, this seems to be primarily a two man job, and also the ability to get flat boards… I think later today I might try to ‘fasten’ a long straight piece of 3×4 ash I have sitting around and see if that helps with the flat board issue.
