I purchased the Rikon 14in BS about 8 months ago and am very pleased with it with one exception. THe fence is not very good. Great resaw capacity and plenty of power for my work. The fence is not flat or square to the table and very difficult to adjust for drift. Simple solution is to make your own fence attachment to correct for it’s inaccuracies. Also, the light is poorly positioned and too short. I modified this based on an improvement by another lumberjock. I would rate the Rikon BS 4 out of 5.
