Steel frame will flex less and be able to provide proper tension for larger blades. The cast iron frame will flex much more. If you do want a cast iron framed machine, I’d keep an eye out for a nice used Delta – which is what all the other 14” imported machines are copies of, and you will save a considerable amount of money doing so.

Cheers,
Brad
