To save on sanding, I’m really impressed with the Rilkon with the Striatech motors. I’ve seen examples of the exact same blade on the same pieces of lumber where the only difference is the motor. The finish quality is pretty amazing as the motor doesn’t bog down really. That being said, there’s a huge benefit to two saws. One set up with a thick blade for resawing and another for fine cuts. I plane on getting a Rikon 10-326 with the Striatech package and using it strictly for resawing and possibly bowl blanks. My Powermatic 14” will become my thin blade saw… and my current Delta will get sold.
