Tool review: Deluxe 14-inch Bandsaws

Commit your tool $$ to these resaw kings

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

I've owned the Jet 14DXPRO since it came out. MSRP $1195, Street price $800. Wired to 220 I haven't had anything I've thrown at it bog it down, which includes some 10" oak, 8" walnut and 6" maple. Yes, I had to get a fence as an option but that worked out fine because I was then able to get the Kreg BandSaw fence which I find more superior than any 'stock' fence. All in all I think you overlooked something here somewhere.

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