The new blade is working great. Straight cuts!
What kind of warranty does the Jet have? Rikon is 5 years.

Almost all of Jet's woodworking tools have a 5 yr non-commercial use warranty.

I did end up getting the band saw, it was on back order so I just picked it up yesterday. Coming from using a handheld jig saw to cut blanks, the band saw is worth every penny!

I just bought a 10" WEN 2 speed with stand for 150.00 at a local warehouse outlet type store. Assembled it and was cutting in a hour. Square and blade bearings and tension were almost perfect right out of the box. Came with a fence and miter gauge. Used it to cut up 15 or so 5x5 square 3/4" Silmar 41 blanks down to pen blank size. Worked perfect' Blade cut straight, no wandering. It is to replace the pos Craftsman 10" bandsaw that has never ever worked properly.

For what its worth I will never buy another Craftsman tool ever. As mentioned before the tool may look identical to another brand and is made by the other company as well, HOWEVER craftsman will change a item or 2 so that the parts are not interchangeable. They also have contract exclusives for the parts. I had a very nice craftsman cordless drill that at the time I bought it was their top of the line. Couple years later the batteries cashed out and wouldn't take a charge. Called sears, nope no longer able to get betteries. Found out Bosch made the drill. Called Bosch, Yes they had them but NO they couldn't sell me one because of the contract with craftsman. So there I sat with 2 very expensive craftsman cordless drills that cost in excess of 250.00 total that sears would not order replacement batteries for and Bosch had but could not sell me. And yes the position of the metal contacts were off enough that Bosch's version would not fit. Have never bought another craftsman tool since. Have several different ones left but as they die or I decide to upgrade I DO NOT replace with a craftsman product
