Bandsaw Joy

My wine rack project is on a little hiatus, while I set up the newest addition to my shop, a Rikon 14″ deluxe bandsaw. I have lived without a bandsaw for years,  because all my projects  where strait and kind of bland. The few times I’ve needed to make curved parts, I made do with router templates and my jig saw. Lately I’ve been making more curvy pieces, and it’s become obvious that a bandsaw is a necessity. after a few weeks of researching, I settled on the Rikon, because it meet my free primary requirements. It costs less than $1k, it runs on 120 volts, and it has an excellent re-saw capacity of 13 inches. Hopefully I will have it all tuned up, and ready to go by the end of the weekend.
