Thanks for the post AHuxley. Which leads me to the question what size blade should I be looking at. The Ricon that I have is the Rikon 2-1/2 HP, 18” Bandsaw, (10-345). I took a class a while back and the instructor mentioned 3/8” was fine as long as you had the blade tight enough. We were using a 14” bandsaw so the assumption I made is that a blade that size was all the 14” could handle. He was a big believer in that approach but I have not seen him since to ask him about it.
