I also bought the Rikon 14” Deluxe, it replace a 12” Sears Craftsman. I have used large industrial BS’s at work, and they wouldn’t have the resaw capacity of the Rikon. If you look at Craigslist you might get lucky and find on old heavy BS, but they usually don’t have a large resaw capacity to width ratio, but they do have a larger table. The miter slots don’t have the t slot.
I looked at the Laguna, the Grizzly and the Rikon and for the price I chose the Rikon. I think it was worth every penny, so far.
