Bandsaw heads-up
« on: July 02, 2019, 02:54 PM »
Howdy folks,

Acme tools is having a 10% off sale, I picked up a Rikon 10-326 with free shipping/no tax/10% off (Laguna is excluded).

Hope this helps someone.

I see Woodcraft has 15% off on Rikon until August 18, 2019.

I have had my 10-325 bandsaw for many years and it's been great.
I see they now have a motor upgrade kit available that fits my saw.

With the 15% discount that's about $100 off which is enough to get
me to buy one now. I've been thinking about it for some time but
to save $100 I am tempted to buy before the discount offer ends.

It's made by Teknatool/Striatech for Rikon. Anyone have this motor
on a 10-325 or 10-326 bandsaw I'd be interested in hearing your
thoughts before I pull the trigger later today.



I see Highland Woodworking has the Rikon blade guide upgrade kit (#10-900)
on sale at a good price, which look to be better than the Carter blade guides.
I bought the Cartere guides years ago and not really impressed with them but
they are better than the stock guides that came with my 10-325 8 years ago.

I would also be interested if any one has installed or bought a 10-326 with the upgraded motor.
Thank you
