Anybody ever heard of a 92-1/2 inch band saw blade? A guy on E-Bay is
selling some and he has listed it as a 92.5 - inch blade. I have a
Jet 14-inch which takes a 93.5" blade. Not sure if these are
compatible or not. Have looked on various web-sites and cannot see
any 92.5's, only 93.5's.
Take a look at your adjustment on the bandsaw. Can the whole thing
be lowered 1/2" and not run out of room? If so, the inch smaller
(if it's not a typo) won't be a problem.
Sometimes the easy answers are right in front of you, but not obvious.
A 92.5 inch blade is what HF's wonderful (agonizingly awful) 14" bandsaw
takes. I know because I had one, returned it, and Timber Wolf was nice
enough to give 50% credit. Timberwolf told me this is a unique size, not the
market standard, and very few blades of this size are ever sold. That being
the case, anyone finding 92.5' blads on ebay should be able to buy them
Lower your upper wheel all the way down. Wrap a tape measure around the
wheels following the blade path. You should be able to get a pretty good
idea of whether or not the 92.5" blade will fit.

Old 14 clones were made with 92 1/2, and didn't have the travel to use a 93
1/2 as I recall. Check your manual and the travel on the upper wheel, but
my bet's it will fit, may be touchy to roll onto the wheels.
Take a look at your owners manual if you still have it, or contact Jet.
Anyway, I have a Craftsman 14" Professional bandsaw that LOOKS exactly like
the Jet 14' Open stand model. The manual calls for a blade length of
between 91 1/2 and 93 1/2. Based on that little bit of useless
information, I would ASSUME that the 92 1/2 inch blade will work for you.
