WOOD magazine review

Heavy-duty bandsaw resaws with power and finesse

Review Summary

There’s a lot to like about Rikon’s robust 14" Professional bandsaw. Its 2-1/2-hp motor powers the blade through even the maximum 14" resaw cut in hardwoods. With dual-bearing, tool-free blade guides and easy-to-adjust wheels and rip fence, I resawed 1/16" veneers with no blade deflection or drift. And I like that the table surface sits just 36" from the floor, making it easier to resaw large, heavy workpieces. Rikon built in welcome safety measures on this saw as well.
A foot-activated brake stops the blade and motor in just a couple of seconds. And electric microswitches on the doors and blade-tension release—mounted conveniently below the top door—prevent accidental start-ups. Still, a few small details—a wobbly handwheel, a too-long fence-handle bolt, a not-quite-large-enough opening for the blade-guidepost cap—detract from the overall fit and finish of a top-performing bandsaw. —Tested by John Olson, Design Editor

Good band saw or the money

Review Summary

I purchased the Rikon 10-350 a few months ago. - Very happy with it. Good power, tracks well and easy to change blades. Good size table. I like the safety interlocks that ensure you can't start the saw with the blade not tensioned, doors open, etc. I previously had a Delta 1 HP 14" band saw - the Rikon is a BIG improvement. I have re-sawed 10" wide maple - no sweat for this saw! (I used a Highland Woodworking "Wood Slicer" blade.) Absolute smile when using this machine.
