About $75 cheaper than the previous lower price, looking back 163 days (full CCC history). Rated 4.2 out of 5 (504 customer ratings) on Amazon, but reviews are lumped together with the less-capable 9 in. and 10 in. models. Seems like it's a solid saw after taking some time to set up properly.


Features:
  • 9.5 amp motor creates cuts up to 8.85 inches deep and 13-3/8 inches wide
  • Uses 100-3/4 inch blades anywhere from 1/8 to 1 inches in size
  • Spacious 21-1/2 x 15-3/4 inch work table bevels up to 45 degrees
  • Operates at two speeds of either 1480 or 3280 FPM
  • Includes a blade tension gauge, a circle cutting guide, a flexible work light, a 3-in-1 dust port, a fence, a 1/2-inch blade, and a miter gauge
Comparison
Previous related Slick Deal [9/30/19] on the Rikon 14" 10-321, at $429.94 + $29.25 S/H = 459.19 shipped.
The Rikon didn't have any accessories: fence ($85), circle jig ($?), miter guide ($43-55), so the difference vs the above WEN is only about ~$60 cheaper

Interesting. I'm all set for a bandsaw, but was intrigued that it came standard with a 1/2" blade! Basically, that's almost best for resawing, vs say cutting arcs and whatnot. So I read some Amazon reviews, which apparently apply only to the two smaller size WEN band saws.

If you're considering buying one, I recommend you check out the many reviews for it at Home Depot. Most seem pretty positive. I've had good luck with smaller benchtop WEN tools btw.
