I tried to start a new thread with my question but I couldn’t. Maybe I’m too new but either way this is probably a good thread to ask it in.

I currently have a Grizzly 555LX that I like very much. I generally never resaw over 5 or 6” and this saw does it with ease, much better than an old Delta I used to have. Occasionally I may have a need to resaw 7-8” boards and will need the riser kit. However I’ve heard some folks dislike riser kits on 14” saws because they feel the frame isn’t up to the task of the extra tension the longer/wider blade requires and wheel alignment issues. Anyone have any experience with this saw or have opinions in general about riser kits?
