I bought a saw just like that one for a little over $300 on closeout. It is indeed a repainted Rikon saw. It has provided good service to me for several years. I bought a new Laguna recently but kept it for scroll type work. The blade guides and guide bearings are its weak point. The guides are very sloppy mechanically and that makes them hard to set precisely. The guide bearings aren’t sealed and fail with great regularity. I found the best solution is to buy pro skate board bearings in tubes of 10 or 20 rather than original replacements because they are cheaper and last longer.
