Thanks again everyone for your input. I decided to go all in with the Rikon VS 17”. My reasoning: I hadn’t found what I was looking for in the used market and admittedly, was feeling going to avoid the chance of any tool issues. I don’t have a whole lot of time (and discovered that I have some table saw arbor issues recently) so i just wanted as easy as possible, time and not money being the big factor. For that reason I decided to bypass the PC as well, as well as the Jet’s/Grizzly’s mixed—if generally positive—reviews.

I’ve liked the Rikon bandsaw I’ve had and their customer service is the best I’ve experienced to date (most are good). With the features and price discount it looks like they’re trying to please, and I’m betting that I may have found a dark horse…
