That appears to be the Rikon 10-325. If it is, it’s a great saw. That is the one I had lined up in my sights until I came across a deal on a Shop Fox 19”.

It has a 13” resaw capacity and a very stiff spine. My friends with a low production furniture shop have one and it’s great.

In my opinion, it’s the best 14” bandsaw you can buy (without spending much more) and use without having to add on risers out of the box… but I like to be able to do 8”+ resaws so that may be part of that reasoning.

You can buy cheaper saws that are just as good by Grizzly, but this saw is top notch on fit and finish out of the box (IMO).

For the past 1/2 year, it’s been hovering on Amazon at 950-1050 bucks.
