Today at my local woodworking store I saw the Rikon 10-346 “professional” 18 inch bandsaw. Seemed like a very nice saw, especially given the 4hp motor, foot brake ect. The fit and finish looked fine and at a sale price of $1610.00 it was virtually 1/2 the cost of the Minimax.
I also looked at a Laguna, which looked good and had a few cool features but was only a 14 inch 2 hp. I know they make a 16 inch Italian version but I believe it is only available from Laguna.
There are a lot of old reviews of Rikon bandsaws but I have seen very few recent reviews. I know Grizzly will pop up in conversation but I prefer to but something I can see.
So,if anyone has info on the Rikon 10-346, it would be appreciated.
