Starting 10/27, woodcraft as the Rikon 14” deluxe (10-325) bandsaw on sale for 799.99 plus a 100$ woodcraft gift card. This is a pretty sweet deal for someone looking for a decent 1.5hp bandsaw with a 13” resaw capacity.

I depends on what I do with my current saw. I found and bought a barely used 16” minimax bandsaw on CL. It’s missing some things that I don’t want to purchase, and the footprint is just too large for my shop. The mobile base works well, but to engage it I need the saw about a foot further from the wall than I would like it to be.

For that price tag I will build a way bigger bandsaw mill, but sounds like a sweet deal anyway.

That’s almost tempting. I’ve been considering a couple of different Laguna saws, but of course they’re twice the money or more. Gah… decisions, decisions. Thanks for the heads-up, Joe.

This is the saw I want to buy, and that is an awesome deal. Unfortunately, I simply don’t have the cash right now. Oh well, another sale will come along at some point.

Also if you are looking for a big saw, the 10-345 (2.5hp 18”) is 500$ off which makes it an even 1000.00

I bought the 14” Ricon Deluxe some time ago at $750 and absolutely love it.

Son of a Bee. Probably can’t slip this one past the wife so soon after all the other stuff I’ve bought recently.

have had my Rikon 14” deluxe for 2 years now, and it’s a gem. I got mine on a similar type sale except it was $719 and a $50 gift card, bought 2 Olson All Pro blades with the card….LMAO

John, before I found the minimax I was considering Laguna as well. I decided it’s really too much saw for me and the Rikon 10-325 is perfect. Actually the 14” craftsman would work well for my needs, but the Rikon will give me a lot of room to grow into. If the current prospective buyer for the MiniMax takes the deal, I’ll be headed over to woodcraft to load one up.

On my local classified, this morning there is a “hardly” used 18” Grizzly for $400.00, very tempting except that I really do not have the use for, I just would like to have one.

I’ve been scouring CL for a BS. I’ve even been considering a new BS. This sale comes at a great time. Any idea how long the sale price will be honored???

Through 21 November. Even better if you have a woodcraft near you, you can save on the shipping charge. That is usually a decent chunk of change

I drive by the Seattle Woodcraft store in a couple of weeks so I could take the truck down… I just have to pay the sales tax twice (WA state and BC when I cross back into Canada). So, that adds about 21% to the cost. $800 = tax = $968, and that’s if they don’t hit me with an import duty at the border. Oh, and I’d get a $100 gift card.

Locally, I can buy the saw for $929 + 12% sales tax. So that’d be $1040 all in. And no gift card.

Now, I just have to find a grand to spend… :)
