I've been working towards replacing my old 12" bandsaw with a new 14" model. I've been leaning towards the Grizzly 555 Deluxe or Ultimate, either with the 6" riser. $700+ delivered.
Now the local specialty woodworking supply store is advertising the Rikon 10-324, 14", 1.5hp, with 13" resaw capacity for $699. Freight may be extra and may be a deal breaker for me.
My question, does anyone here have experience with the Rikon bandsaw. I understand Rikon has made improvements since they sold their first models some 10+ years back.
