Solid value in a new saw
Rikon 10-205 Left-Tilt Contractor Saw

Rikon has a new “contractor saw,” but this designation doesn’t do the tool justice. Instead of hanging the motor off the back of the saw and relying on a long V-belt to transfer power to the blade arbor pulley (standard contractor saw configuration), Rikon has located the motor inside a fully enclosed cabinet. The resulting powertrain, with its short, segmented V-belt, minimizes vibration, and the 13/4-hp, dual-voltage motor provides ample power for general woodworking tasks. The saw’s smooth running performance is also due to well-machined parts, a cast iron top, and an overall weight of 260 lbs.
