John, have you had a chance to try the saws in person?

I have used 18” Rikon, Grizzly, and Laguna bandsaws. The quality of the Laguna is head and shoulders above the others, and that’s the saw I have. The Rikon and Grizzly were both pretty good saws that give decent bang for the buck.

I have not seen the 14” Grizzly or Rikon saws. The Laguna 14” is not in the same league as Laguna’s bigger saws. But it is a pretty nice saw compared to other 14” saws I have seen.

I am one of those who has had very good experiences with Laguna’s customer service. Obviously, there are others who have not. But you can read all about that elsewhere.
