  • re ridgid bandsaw

    What would you like to see in a furture ridgid bandsaw? Mine would be a bigger motor and more resaw height.

    For more than 12 inches of resaw, they would probably have to move to supporting wider blades. That would take a stiffer frame, and usually larger wheels. Costs mount. I think that would be a problem, because Home Depot isn't going to support the sale of big dollar tools, I think. I know I wouldn't be interested in buying a tool in the couple thousand or more dollar range there.

    I tend to agree on the motor. Delta has finally (how long they been making that 14"?) realized that with 12 inch resaw capacity, people want to resaw 12 inches, and have begun offering a 1 1/2hp motor.
