I love just about everything about my Rikon 10-325 14″ bandsaw, It has plenty of power, accuracy, and re-saw height. I got it on sale from Highland Woodworking, for $800 if memory serves, and with some starter blades and shipping it was delivered to my door for a little over $1000, so it’s a pretty god deal as far as bandsaws go. The one thing I don’t love about it, is the tool holder it came with. Short of swapping out the motor, everything can be adjusted with the 4 Allen keys and 2 open/box wrenches that came with it.
The conundrum is that the tool holder that mounts to the spine is only for the Allen keys. Thus You have to find a place to store the wrenches. It doesn’t sound like a big deal but the wrenches are needed every time you want to change the blade or adjust the guides. Since storage space is at a premium in my shop, I usually spend several minutes trying to figure out what drawer I put the wrenches in last time I used them. Last week I decided enough is enough, and I made a new tool holder. It’s made from some scrap 8/4 hard Maple, and rare earth magnets. The Allen keys sit in holes drilled into the top of the holder just like the original, while the wrenches are held in-place by the magnets.
