Includes features for easy operation – tilting 0-45° table, rip fence, large blade tension knob, dust port for shop vacuum hookup, and safety paddle on/off switch. Reduced size is ideal for transporting, or storing, when not in use. Includes rip fence. Steel stand (#13-913) and a miter gauge are available separately.

Rikon 10-305

Review Summary

I've had mine for about 2 years now, and having exactly zero experience with a bandsaw, the learning curve was not horrible. Love that it's small & lightweight, but unless you have no plans to cut anything taller than 5 inches or wider than 10 inches to the left, you will outgrow this saw quickly. My biggest dislike is that it is lacking in the power department, & the hand crank tensioner is horrible.Another strike is the rip fence. Too much play for any meaningful fine cuts.
For the price, though, a fair beginner's saw.
