A suggestion: Buy a bigger bandsaw, like the Grizzly 17”, that has the power to handle wide resawing and wide blades. Then sell the Jet. Compare the total expenditure (cost of Griz – sale of Jet) vs the improvement in capacity, to the cost and labor of the riser block and that capacity. Which is more bang for your buck?
