I’ve had a Ridgid bandsaw for about 6 months. I found it on Craig’s List for $120. That’s more than you paid, but still a lot less than what it was worth. I’ve also read bad reviews of this saw, but mine works great. No vibration and it does everything I’ve asked it to do. I don’t have the 6” extension and I’m not looking for one because my other bandsaw is a Rikon 10-325 and it will resaw 12” boards. Now that I have two bandsaws, I use the Rikon for resawing and leave it setup with a 3/4” blade. I keep a 1/4” blade in the Ridgid and use it for general ripping tasks. You got a great deal. I spent all my extra hardware money this week on a Grizzly lathe and duplicating attachment that I found on Craig’s List….
