Check out the Rikon model 10-324 bandsaw. It has a 13” depth of cut and 1-1/2 hp. Cost is $899.95. I don’t have one, but if I were looking to buy a new BS, I would definitely consider Rikon. Take a look at their online manual; very impressive.

I noted there were a lot of customer complaints for the Rikon 10-345 saw which is an 18” saw. One must keep in mind these saws are made in CHINA, so buyer beware but that is true of all the saws, as most are made in CHINA. I’m not sure about Laguna. Jet and PM are made in Taiwan, so they may be more reliable.
