I have the Rikon 14” Deluxe, it’s a great saw using 110v or rewiring it for 220v. I have had it for almost 2 years, I do a lot of resawing of rosewoods, ebonies, maples, mahogany and walnut with it, and some occasional shape cutting. With a 3/4” 3TPI Olson All Pro or Woodslicer, I can resaw anything quite nicely, even 12” curly Purpleheart. with a 5/8” or 1/2”, I cut out guitar bodies in everything from white Ash to Poplar and can keep within 1/32” without any effort at all. The saw is absolutely my favorite. My poor 12” Jet has been sitting a lot since I got the Rikon. Blade changes take 90 seconds with a 5mm allen and the quick release lever on the saw. The Rikon will serve you well, and the bearing guides are wonderful for keeping the blade in place.
