Rikon Rolls Out New Contractor Saw
Rikon Power Tools is introducing a new 10-in. left-tilt contractor saw, to be unveiled at this year’s AWFS (Association of Woodworking and Furnishings Suppliers) Fair in Las Vegas (July 20-23).
The saw (model 10-201) has a 1.5-hp motor (factory-wired for 120v but can be converted to 240v) with a 30-in. rip capacity to the right of the blade. Maximum depth of cut is 3 3/8 in. (2 1/4 in. with the blade tilted 45 degrees).
It also looks like Rikon is following other contractor saw makers by enclosing the motor and pulley assembly, which helps contain dust and makes collection more efficient.
Model 10-201 will sell for around $900. You can get more information on Rikon’s website, or you can come to Vegas for the AWFS Fair to check it out in person, as some FWW editors will. Rikon will be in booth #4633.
