Here is what I did today! This is a grizzly riser block and a rockwell saw. Worked pretty well… Little machining on drilling out the riser block to fit the rockwell saw. I have included some pictures of it.. I am going to get a 3/4” post for the guide post cause the 1/2” works but takes a bit of fiddling to get it straight all the time because of the extra space. I have included some pics. Sorry the images are sideways.

Here is the riser block installed… Not seamless but it is sturdy and I shook this thing and there is no more play in it then there was before.

Here is the guide post… Little extra room. This is why I need to get a 3/4” post.

Here is a full picture of the saw now… I am digging this already. Here I don’t have the extra blade guide on it, but I have it and I will put it on before I use it.

Good job on the riser block addition.
