Topic tags/keywords: band saw bandsaw buying a new tool power tools new bandsaw question

I have narrowed down my search…....I think. I am looking at the RIKON Model # 10-345 18” Bandsaw and the Grizzly G0514X 19” 3 HP Extreme Series Bandsaw. I was just wondering what you all thought about these. I have used the Rikon and like it. Have not used a grizzly before. Have heard they are good, and that they are junk. If anyone could give me some hands on experiences that would be great. Also if you know a place to buy one cheaper than MSRP. Thanks

I bought a RIKON 14” a couple of years ago. I couldn’t be happier. Straight cut, resaw, it doesn’t matter. I,ve never had to worry about “drift” and all of those other things that they talk about with band saws.

Good luck.
