Okay everybody I have some play money and have decided to upgrade from my Craftsman 10” bandsaw to a good 14”. I’m looking at Rikon 10-325 currently on sale at Woodcraft for $799 or the Grizzly G0555LX which has free freight right now. With the Grizzly I would get the riser block adding $80 to the price making it $605.
Here are the pros and cons as I see them.
I want to get something that will be good and satisfy my needs long term. I have a Grizzly table saw and have had a great experience with it and the level of service they provide. I don’t know much about Rikon, but they seem to have a lot of satisfied customers. As far a use I do want to be able resaw with a decent amount of ease. The Rikon on sale is the absolute top of my budget, but I think I’d do it if I’ll really ended up in a better position in the end. On the other hand if the Grizzly will do almost as good I’d rather keep my $200.
All opinions welcome and appreciated!
