Anyone here have/use a Rikon 14" Bandsaw? They have one at my local
woodcraft store and it looks nice enough for a fixed head saw, just
wondered about the real world. Is it something like a Bridgewood or a
poor man's Laguna?
BTW, I have no need/interest in 12" resaw capability.
So how about why you like the Rikon other your resaw capability?
C'mon, you gotta give me more than that :)!
How would you stack up the build quality compared to the popular
brands like Delta, Griz, Jet, and PM? Break it down to a few

I found it well built... solid and powerful. Changing blades is easier than
others in its class (according to Fine Woodworking... this is the only one I
ever used myself so I can't judge). Its table is larger than most others in its
class and has a good fence included. And then there's that resaw capacity...
Frankly, to beat it I think you'd have to spring for the Laguna at three times
