Probably you shouldn’t just assume that a 14 inch Ridgid bandsaw is poor quality. I’ve had one for years and have no problem with it. Recently it was cutting rather slowly, so I put a new 3/8 Timberwolf blade on it, and man we are bandsawing like a champion. I put new urethane tires on it 3 or 4 years ago. Ceramic guides were added maybe 5 years ago.

I paid $350 for it new. The next bandsaw will cost 3 or 4 times that, so what I got for $350 was a decent bandsaw.
