Many people moaning about 14” bandsaws have never owned
and tuned a bandsaw before.

China-made tools are all over the map in terms of quality control.
Perhaps the Ridgid is a poorly made saw, but I’d wager some
of the complaints are from people with unrealistic out-of-the-box
performance expectations.

If in doubt, get a vintage Delta or similar. They were mostly
very well made.
