The Masterforce tools I own are as follows

10 In Contractor Table Saw
6 inch Jointer
13 inch Planer
Variable Speed Drill press
4×36 inch sander with 8 inch disk
3×21 belt sander
12 volt lith ion drill and drivers
Several types of bar and ratcheting clamp.
1 1/2 hp router and plunge kit

I have not had any issues with any of them except I had to modify the Trunions on the table saw in order to align to blade to the table.

I have run 500 board feet of oak and maple through the planer and it has yet to need a blade change

In my research before buying these items I found that they are pretty close if not the same as Ridgid and Craftsman. Hence I do not have and will not buy the 14in Bandsaw. As Matt said the 10 In saw you listed is a Rikon. I would not hesitate to buy it.

-- He: Can I get the plans for that? Me: Plans???
