Well, I've got the older Rikon (10-340)18" bandsaw and I'm very happy with it's performance. At the time the saw received great reviews on tests done in various magazines. No complaints so far with it.Have any of you fellers' had an experience, positive or otherwise, with the Rikon tools that I see at Woodcraft? They look like a decent mid-range tool to me, and they have a decent price tag. However I get nervous with an unfamiliar brand.
