I have that tablesaw and have been very happy with it but others have had problems as posted above so you’re on your own with the TS. I would urge you to look at the 17” Grizz bandsaw (extreme series). It has a lot more features than the 14” saws and has 12” resaw capacity without need for a riser block. Compare prices between the 14 and 17” and there is little difference after you add the resaw fence, riser block, etc to the 14” model. I have run a lot of wood/logs through my 17” Extreme Grizz and it has performed well. The last suggestion would be to buy good blades for whichever BS you choose as that makes a BIG difference. Best wishes.
