Topic tags/keywords: bandsaw resource question

I’m looking for a riser kit for a new Porter Cable PCB330BS from Lowe’s. Perusing the forums, I see a number of posts of successfully adapting Jet kits for the PC, Grizzly kits for Delta, Delta kits for Rigid, etc. I don’t suppose too many folks buy multiple kits just to compare them, but does anyone know how the various kits differ?

The castings for the riser itself seem to be the same, but the blade guide posts, hole placement, and other included hardware appear to differ, kit to kit.

I would be willing to compile and post a comparison chart, if you will help me gather the data. If you have one of these kits, the following information could help others figure out if a particular kit is adaptable to their saw.

Casting dimensions: L, W, H
Alignment hole diameter:
Alignment hole placement. distance from nearest circumference to wide and narrow edges of casting
Guide post diameter and shape:
Blade guard dimensions: L, W, D
Other included hardware:
Successful uses: What model bandsaw have you used the kit on successfully?
Any other relevant information:
