AWFS Tool News

OK, any time you employ an adjective like "best," "toughest," or in this case "ultimate" in the model name of a product, you'd better have a solid way to back up the boast. Case in point: Rikon's latest tool announcement.

If you've followed our bandsaw reviews in the past, you're probably familiar with the fact that Rikon saws generally perform fairly well in our tool tests. The latest news from Rikon concerns the debut of a new bandsaw with 14-in. of resaw height that combines all the best elements of their previous saws, in one so-called "ultimate" bandsaw. Check back later this week for photos and news concerning the new Rikon 10-350 Ultimate Bandsaw. We'll see just how "ultimate" this bad-boy is!
