Ok, my tax return e-file has been sent and we will get back more than expected. I will be getting a new bandsaw. I am looking at the Grizzly GO555 and the 14" Rikon at Woodcraft. I know the Grizzly reputation, but am a little shy about the Rikon because it seems to be fairly new to the market. I know this question has been beaten to death, but I AM CONFUSED by all of the decisions!!! To confuse things even more, I will be looking for a lathe in April(bonus time at work) I will be looking to spend about $500, so my head spinning is not near its end.
