Commit your tool $$ to these resaw kings

For this article, we reviewed the Delta 28-206, Grizzly G0457, Grizzly G0555X, Jet JWBS-14DXPRO, Laguna 14SUV, Powermatic PWBS-14CS, and Rikon 10-325.

Not surprisingly, the $1,495 Laguna 14SUV proved itself superior in this seven-saw field, earning it our Top Tool award for 220-volt models. Try as we might, we could not bog down this 3-hp workhorse, even when resawing 14"-wide oak and ash. If your shop's not wired for 220 volts, or if you can't afford the Laguna's price tag, go for the Rikon 10-325 for $900. It's our Top Tool among 110-volt saws.

If both of these fall out of your price range, then look to the Top Value Grizzly G0555X. Add the optional riser block and you'll have a saw worthy of any shop for less than $800

Does anyone have a source for the riser blocks for a Delta 14" bandsaw, Model 28-280?
