The Rikon 10-305 10'' Bandsaw is ideal for small shops, or wherever space is limited. It features ball-bearing guides to keep the blade in line and a quick-release fence that slides in a trackmachined into the edge of the table. The table can be angled 45° to the right for beveled cuts. For stability, the saw should be bolted to a bench or worktable. An open stand is available separately (Rikon part #13-913) if you wish to preserve bench/table space.


Features:
  • Cast aluminum wheels are precision balanced
  • Upper and lower ball-bearing guides keep the blade tracking properly
  • Edge-facing thrust bearings
  • Includes 2'' tall fence and 2-1/2'' diameter dust port
  • Guides are easily adjustable to save time when changing blades
  • Spacious 13-3/4'' x 12-1/2'' table
  • Safety on/off switch with locking key helps prevent unauthorized use

This is a great Saw!
I am very impressed, after thinking that bench saws are not professional, but reading the reviews on this saw, I decided to try it. This unit is very heavy duty and cuts perfect curves in 2X6 lumber with no binding. I'm an ex wood shop teacher so I can recommend this saw for the experienced wood worker.

Love this bandsaw but I wish I had gotten a bigger one.
I love this tool. It's much quieter than a table saw and does almost everything I need (including fairly straight cuts, despite what some people seem to think). I wish I had gotten a slightly larger one so I could do resawing on wider pieces. I would definitely advise getting the biggest you can afford. I have no issues with reliability, ease of set up or anything else.
Note that the speed is not adjustable (if you need something to also cut metal, this is probably not the one to get).
Also, the included blade was greasier than I expected and it took quite a bit of cutting before it stopped leaving stains on the wood. I actually ended up getting another blade (for different tpi) before I got it completely cleaned.
Everyone should watch the Alex Snodgrass video on setting up a bandsaw if you run into any issues.

Jim Dandy little bench top band saw !
I've been needing a band saw since my old delta died and saw the Rikon 10-306 Deluxe on sale, so I took a leap of faith. Turns out this is a premium small saw. It runs very quiet, almost no vibration and it cuts true. Took a bit of time to true up the table to the blade but now that it's done I'm back in business. I love this saw! I would recommend it for anyone needing a smaller saw for smaller projects.

Rikon 10" Bandsaw with Fence
The Rikon 10" Bandsaw is not too big or too fancy. It's perfect for a beginning woodworker. Also, I'm a senior citizen so I appreciate that it is not too heavy. I have only begun to use it and get to know it, so I can't say much more. I really like it so far.

Great tool!
It worked great right out of the box. I am a hobbyist so I really don't need a big powerful bandsaw.This gave me exactly what I needed to make cuts in furniture projects.

Seems like the best compromise between quality and price available right now
Tom on Mar 7, 2019
I was in the market for a bandsaw. I'm a hobbyist so I was looking for a budget item - I'd considered going to one of the big box stores but was given a Rockler gift card over the holidays, so this was the natural choice!
Adam G on Feb 28, 2019
Six month's worth of research into the best bandsaw for the money. Would have bought the floor model, but not enough room in the garage.
Rebecca S on Jan 4, 2019
Best reviews and it's a trusted brand.
Alexander R on Jan 2, 2019
quality and reviews
Edwin W on Dec 10, 2018
I have owned another brand of band saw that never really worked well and broke down recently. Rikon 10-305 receives the best reviews in it's class. Free shipping made this the best deal
Robert S on Nov 22, 2018
It's perfect for what I need it for, and it's footprint isn't going to take up much room.

Skidboot on Mar 16, 2018
The picture shows a stand - does the stand come with the saw?
Henry J on Jun 11, 2017
BEST ANSWER: no it does not.
How do you put blade tensioner knob back on that was removed?
Steve E on Nov 17, 2018
On the tension adjustment. Is there a sight glass to let you know how much tension to put on the blade ?
greg b on Mar 29, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Greg, sorry I cannot help you. I ordered the bandsaw in early March and it will not be shipped until after April 20th.
what size saw blade comes with unit at time of purchase?
Michael S on Jan 26, 2018
BEST ANSWER: The 1/4" blade comes with the unit. It cuts real well.
The spec say distance from table to floor is 39 7/8”, I am guessing that mean with the stand, correct?
NikCh on Feb 10, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Obviously. I have mine stationed atop an old kitchen cabinet. You want to have the cast iron table positioned approx. at the height of your bent arms.
will Rikon blades fit my Wen 10" band saw?
Thomas M on May 9, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Depends on your blade's circumference.. if its 70.5 inches, it will work
Can a riser block be added to this saw? If yes, do they make one?
Mitch S on Feb 23, 2020
BEST ANSWER: Nope. I wish it could.
Does Rikon have a warranty on this saw?
Steve on May 2, 2018
BEST ANSWER: I'm sure there is a warranty on this saw. I've. Not had to use it at this point. But I have not used the the saw that much to where I might have to take advantage of a warranty. I like how the saw has performed up to now.
If I took off the fence, would it cut 12” diameter?
Aiden E on Jun 12, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Not easily. Distance from support column to blade is 9 5/8", so you'd have to rig a table extension on the other side of the blade. I did that to cut some 9" radius circles
Is it good for re-sawing?
Ron S on Sep 17, 2018
BEST ANSWER: It works forreading. But the max depth for a resaw is about 4.25 in. I do like the bandsaw but it does not have much capacity for larger boards.
That being said, it was well powered for resawing up to it's full capacity. I did buy a thicker blade for resawing. The one it comes with is better for sharp turns and such. Does not give you very strait resaws. Hope that helps.
What are base dimensions?
Thomas C on May 16, 2018
BEST ANSWER: 9.25 X 15.75 inches...same as the "footprint" specifications in on-line technical details
What is the cutting depth?
margo m on Nov 24, 2017
BEST ANSWER: I'm assuming that your wondering what the distance is from the top of the table to the guide block. That would be aproximately 4 3/4".
Can this bandsaw be plugged into a regular home outlet?
Brazilboy P on Aug 30, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Es. I am in California and it uses a standard plug for the US. But honestly I have not been super impressed with the bandsaw so far. Admitedly I am NOT a bandsaw expert. Good luck
