Ridgid makes many fine tools but this one I am vary Leary of.I have their Planer and jointer and I am pleased but this band saw cries Lemon! like saddletramp I do not seen the saw on there web site any longer.It screams out REDESIGN,too many inherent problems.I am about to buy my band saw from Grizzly its either the G0555x or the G0513p.I know that thees two saws are not in that price range but i am looking at their(Grizzly) catalog right now and the G0555 1hp 14” band saw is 450 beans with 69 dollar shipping.Awards from American wood worker(best buy),Wood magazine(top tool),Popular Wood working(Best new tool)I have herd no good reviews for the Ridgid but like Loren said a lot of grumbling.
