That's a good price on the Ridgid
I bought a Central Machinery 14" just under $200.oo It's basically the same as the Ridgid with a 1hp.
It's important to keep the sawdust off the motors on the cheaper brand bandsaws.
When you guys say 14" does that mean it will cut through something 14 " tall? I am also looking for a bandsaw to cut through 12" thick flotation billets. This is what I use for my fish forms I carve. Thanks.
I would only look for a delta or Old rockwell if you need a riser block to cut 12 plus thick wood or foam. Also parts are still available for all models ,thru delta. I know I have a 1959 14' rockwell that my wife has order part for and a 1956 rockwell jointer that we got parts for With no problems . no sob story that this thing is to old for parts and suport.
