I haven't seen a new model at Home Depot yet. WOOD Magazine mentioned in an article about bandsaws that Ridgid was coming out with one but AFAIK there has been nothing official confirming that from Ridgid. The current model gets an awful lot of bad press so I would be surprised if Ridgid didn't come out with an updated model.
~~Don't worry about old age; it doesn't last that long.
I had a bs1400 for years. Vibration was not a problem.
My only complaint is that the saw is underpowered. But, IMO, most if not all 14" bandsaws are underpowered.
I think most people who had vibration issues didn't set something up right, such as the feet.
I would have thought that if a new BS was coming out it would have debuted at the IWF last month.
"When we build let us think we build forever. Let it not be for present delight nor for present use alone. Let it be such work that our descendants will thank us for, and let us think, as we lay stone upon stone, that a time is to come when these stones will be held sacred because our hands have touched them, and that men will say, as they look upon the labor and wrought substance of them, "See! This our fathers did for us."
John Ruskin (1819 - 1900)
