Setting a high standard, Rikon bandsaws are accurate and easy to use. We selected these two models to provide a range of capabilities useful to any woodworker from hobbyists to demanding professionals.
Each has a welded steel frame for rigidity, as well as low-friction ball-bearing blade guides above and below the table to help prevent twisting and deflection. An upper guide/blade guard assembly with a rack-and-pinion mechanism permits smooth height adjustments.
They each have a substantial resawing capacity for their size, with ample power to take advantage of this capability, as well as a fence with a direct-reading scale for accurate, quick positioning.
Impressive saws, backed by a 5-year warranty. Each comes with a blade; additional blades are available.
