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.
I decided to change calling the bathroom the "John" and renamed it the "Jim". I feel so much better saying I went to the Jim this morning.
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.
