Yeah. I know. On the “not real smart” side of the spectrum, but no choice. Shop folded and gone when we moved into 2d floor condo. But – my workbench is here, and hand-held tools like PC314 circ saw, PC690 router, etc. Used on outdoor deck in non-rainy conditions.

Various physical ailments and limitations make hand sawing a real effort. And so…..

Highland [10 minutes away] sends out promo with sale on Rikon 10” bandsaws. I am under no illusions about resawing, performance, etc. I just want to make cuts easily.

BUT – the point [finally]: the best I can hope to negotiate is keeping it on the deck under a cover. Is this something that can be reasonably successful?

The lower-end Rikon 10-305 is on sale for $250 with free shipping for me ;). I’ve dropped that on an LN plane or a couple Aurious at Highland when I went for a qt of Waterlox. 2 days ago, 1oz Meduim CA somehow included a hotdog for my #62.

The $ doesn’t bother me – unless it fails under the cover in Atlanta. How say we?

Also – 10-305 for $250 v 10-3061 for $400. Comments?

TIA for any advice you have to offer.

Wax will be your friend. Or one of the other products like boeshield t9 may be even better. And look on Amazon at outdoor furniture covers, they have lots of sizes at good prices and they work great. I bet one made for the upright propane heaters would do the trick
