Factors for a resaw machine:

1. Capacity
2. HP

I’ve resawed on 1HP 14” saws in the past and it can be done, but…..

I have the Rikon 10-345 18” & it does an excellent job. My only comments are the capacity is only 11 1/2” and the motor went out after about 6 or 7 years of light use and the fence is a little cheesy.

But the machine is a beast and holds it settings.

-- Everything is a prototype thats why its one of a kind!!
