I am thinking about buying a bandsaw either A Laguna 14/12 or a Ricon 326 and was wondering if any of you have any experience with either of these saws and could give me some advice.

I am also interested in those same bandsaws; however, I have also thrown the new Jet 14” steel frame in the mix. Around the same price.

I have the 326 and am very pleased with it. I suspect you can’t go wrong with either one.

I’ve had the Rikon 10-326 for over a year now and really like it. I cut bowl blanks and resaw with it and have never had any issues. Don’t think you can go wrong with either one.

With the Menards 11% off, you can save $120 on the Rikon 10-326 (and nice option of ship-to-store). Today is the final day for the current 11% off incentive.

I was in Woodcraft today and they had a sign that said 15% off Rikon. Not sure if there are any exclusions, but that’s about as low of a discount as I’ve seen. I bought mine during a 10% off sale.

I’ve got the 10-326. No regrets. 15% off is about as good as it gets.

I have the 14/12—no regrets.
