How to Install a Band Saw Riser Block

For resawing or to increase the cutting height of your band saw you can install a band saw riser block. The typical Delta, Powermatic, Jet and other 14 inch band saws that use a 93 1/2" blade typically have a maximum cutting height of only 6 inches. Several companies, Delta and Powermatic included offer kits to extend the maximum cutting height of these saws to about 12 inches. When installed on your 14 inch bandsaw, you also need to use a 105" blade.

The video below demonstrates how to install one of these band saw riser block kits on a Powermatic 14 inch band saw.
