So I have had one of these Ridgid band saws n my shop for a number of years. The upper wheel shaft broke last weekend and the upper wheel fell right off when I went to tension the blade. I was planning to purchase a Laguna band saw anyway so ordered it yesterday. However, I was thinking of repairing the Ridgid to use as a pattern maker saw to reduce blade swapping.
1. Those that have 2 band saws do you find it useful?
2. Will delta replacement parts work to fix the Ridgid sInce all Ridgid band saw parts are discontinued?
3. Bring the Ridgid to the scrap heap and figure I got my money out of the saw. (paid 100 for it 7 years ago).
Thanks for the opinions.
