I have not scoured for the vibration problem with ridgid bandsaws. I believe that Most of the smaller bandsaws are manufactured by the same outfit and branded for who is selling them. Different guides, tables and tensioners are speced but the frame and such are the same. To get a bandsaw to saw with a fence is much more than throwing a new blade on it. There are many more variables to getting even the best bandsaw running true. For 100.00 dollars you have a foundation that can be built on. You can invest your money where it may serve you better overall (a set of guides and or a tensoion addapter).
