    Does Anyone Have the Rikon 10-325 Band Saw?

    Does anyone own this saw, and if so, how do you like it? It sells for $700 at Klingspoor and looks pretty good compared to other 14" and even the larger saws. I wanted a new band saw for resawing and was going to use my 3/4 hp Delta 14" for curved cuts. Thanks, David

    Does anyone have any good/bad thoughts to share about Rikon? I've been looking at the 14' bandsaw.I did the search and saw a few people had purchased one in the last 6 months and had good things to say. I already have a 14" more than 10 years now that's been okay,but the resaw isn't much more...

    Rikon 10-325 First Report

    I've had the Rikon 10-325 14" bandsaw for almost 2 weeks and would like to post my first impressions and report how the saw does or does not live up to the manufacturer's specs. This won't be a complete review, I may do that after more time with the saw. I suppose the first question would be...

    Rikon 10-345 Bandsaw...Setting the Record Straight

    I have attached a few pics showing the upper wheel tensioning assembly for the new Rikon 10-345 18 inch bandsaw. I had noticed that it is very difficult to tension/track the upper wheel with any repeatability at all. Rikon tech support has been very helpful, but, I believe they unlocked the...

    Rikon Planer/Jointer

    I just looked at the Rikon web site., That planer/jointer is the same one I have but under the Schepach name. As I said on the flashchat, I have had that 20 years and it was used then! so this Rikon stuff must be pretty good. David
