    Rikon or Steel City?

    I'm considering the purchase of my first lathe. These two are in my price range. Do you see any advantages or disadvantages of either? I would appreciate any expert advice. Thanks 1. http://www.woodcraft.com/Product/2005508/16400/RIKON-Mini-Lathe.aspx 2...

    Rikon Bandsaw Questions

    It never fails (oh, and a deal on a rikon)

    Whenever I've got my eye on a new tool for the shop, I usually give it 4-6 weeks to see if something will come up on craigslist before I buy new. I mostly end up buying new, and within a couple weeks the item I was looking for comes up at a good deal. Case in point; just bought this Rikon...

    Have any of you Rikon 10-325 owners installed the approriate (RIK1) Carter Stabilizer? O.K., I'm not a mechanical genius but usually I can eventually figure things out. The instructions for the stabilizer seem to be the same for all the units whether the BS has roller guides or blocks. Can...
