    I got a 14" Rikon 10-326 this summer. It's my first bandsaw so I guess it qualifies as a starter saw. It handles blades up to 3/4" wide easily. I've used it for curved work as well as resawing up to...

    Agreed, but the door slab the OP is dealing with is fiberglass sheet molding compound (SMC) with an interior of injected polyurethane foam. It's a little more forgiving from a thermal perspective.

    Here's one I found in the wild. The cutter end had a handle like a plane tote with a wheel to ride on the work. It was a real smooth user

    I love mine. I bought he mobility kit but took it back. It's not well thought out, and for the price I'd rather have a few spare blades.

    Flexcut - What a difference
