  • Not a Good buy

    Aug 7, 2006 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: 90 day satisfaction guarantee
    Cons: 3/4hp motor,quality control,vibration,dust control,lousy sheet metal stand

    Summary: Please be advised that this review is based on the new (orange and black) version of this saw. I have no doubt that the "older" gray models of this saw did live up to expectations. For those of you unfamiliar with what I am referring too, I'll briefly ... read more

  • Ridgid 14" Bandsaw A good buy if you trick it out

    Oct 27, 2013 by
    Not yet rated.
    Pros: Once tuned as described, and fitted with a good blade, saw will do you right.
    Cons: Stand
    Blade
    Motor mounts
    Belt
    Fix these things and you will be much happier with your saw.

    Summary: Put it together as described in the manual and you will be amazed how much it vibrates.  Truth is, Ridgid is trying to make some money on this unit and do the customer wrong by shipping...1. A worthless belt.   Set mine on my heater in the ... read more

  • A Good, Basic Band Saw

    Dec 28, 2007 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Price, Plenty of Blade options.
    Cons: Tricky Blade Changes, Proper Set Up Needed.

    Summary: I bought the Rigid 14" Band Saw BS1400 at Home Depot. After pricing similar models, the Rigid was the best priced model to suit my application. The unit is packed into one box, but it's a big box, you'll need a pickup to empty backseat to haul this ... read more

  • A hobby user's bandsaw

    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Gets the job done quickly, accuarately, and quietly. Great warranty.
    Cons: Some parts must be replaced

    Summary: The best thing about Ridgid is their lifetime warranty. I really can't get over how well they stand behind their products. These days you can expect a company to make excuses, blame it on you, and not help you at all, but I felt comfortable talking to ... read more

  • Great deal

    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: has many features as Delta or Jet, easy to adjust and life time warranty
    Cons: Like all band saws it needs some tuning

    Summary: I'm an amateur woodworker. I have been looking for band saws for about 3 months before I decided on this model. I knew that I wanted at least a 14 in. one. I bought the band saw handbook and read through it to make sure that I knew what I was getting. I ... read more

  • Good Value

    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: Good value
    Cons: Like all 14" band saws- cost seems high

    Summary: I started out with the Delta 9" band saw and hated it! I eventually returned the saw for full credit. I began my search looking at 14" Delta, & Jet ( I have a Jet 6" jointer and love the quality). I then looked at the Ridgid Band Saw ... read more

    Pros: Life time warranty, accurate, solid
    Cons: Better dust collection

    Summary: For the money, life time warranty this is a best buy. No other 14" band saw in the price range can touch the life time warranty or perform any ... read more

  • BS1400 IS BS INDEED

    Rated Show
    Pros: LIFETIME WARRANTY
    Cons: WHEELS IMBALANCED. IMPRACTICAL WARRANTY.

    Summary: I bought this band saw about a year ago and due to other preoccupations have not had much time using it. But however much i have used it one thing is for sure that this thing vibrates and that is not good when you are working on an important project. I ... read more
