Wondering if anyone you know or you installed Grizzly 14" riser to Delta
bandsaw? If so, do you encounter problems aligning pins/holes on the riser.
Further, did you modify to the blades guard and guidepost (hex verses round
guidepost). Finally, estimate age of your Delta bandsaw?
Thank in advance
I was given a Rigid riser kit which I installed on my older Jet bandsaw. I
had to remove the pins entirely, as I recall. Doing so allowed me to
fine-tune the frame alignment. I haven't put anything in to prevent
movement, but I haven't had any problems yet. The kit came with a grooved,
round bar guide post. I ordered an 18" length of plain steel hex bar to
replace it. Heated it up and put lots of wax into it and haven't had any
rust problems, though it does develop a slight patina. All in all, it's been
great... except for the 3 unused Timberwolf blades I had purchased _just
before_ getting the riser kit. (Whatcha gon' do?)
Thanks for the reply. I have spare new unused Grizzly 14" riser kit. I hope to
sell the bandsaw in a few short months before I moves, keeping the riser kit
for an old Delta bandsaw which I hope to buy at the new place. I will have to
sell the riser kit and a new 14" wheel (my Grizzly already have a raiser
