WOW! that is alot of meaty comments.
After reading all of this, I whole heartedly agree with Hoiz-mike. I also own a Ricon 10-325 and do alot of Bandsaw boxes and resawing. I will attest the fact that this saw has never left me wanting for something more.
I bought mine on sale last year ($750 and no gift card) and also purchased the Timberwolf blades.
The 5/8 blade that comes with it I use as a general purpose ‘cutter’.
For the BS boxes I use the 1/4” mostly and once in a while for tight cuts I use the 1/8” blade.
For Resaw I use a 3/4” ... like H-Mike said I don’t use the post, I use the stock fence with great results.
I’m just reiterating what has been said here ... So, ‘what they said’ too.
The only thing that this saw does not have is a brake like the Laguna ($2200) has.
This is the only sawin the less than $1000 range that will resaw 13” with out buying the extention blocks etc. adding to the cost of the saw.
