Rikon recently released an updated 14″ bandsaw featuring 13″ re-saw capacity and a built-in quick-release blade tensioner. (If you missed it, be sure to check out the great discussion in comments regarding de-tensioning. The short version: it’s a good idea.)
While I haven’t owned any Rikon products personally, I’ve known a number of people who have, and they always seem to have good things to say about ’em. You’ll note, too, that according to Rikon this was a Popular Woodworking magazine “Editor’s Choice.”
Other features: a 1-1/2″ HP, 2-speed motor, blade tracking and tension windows — these are handy — and an integrated light — also impressive as I can never manage to light my shop completely.
Street pricing starts around $800.
