If you have an old blade, just measure it for the replacement.

Default 14" Grizzly

105" is the correct size. I have a 14" saw with the riser and the 105" came with the kit. I've a selection of 105's and they work fine. Mine is a Grizzly, also.

You read it wrong. 14" bandsaws use 93" blades. Then add 12" for the riser block

Please don't assume that all 14" bandsaws have the same blade. The newer ones do use a 93" blade, some of the older ones use a longer one. If you check the specs for the OPs bandsaw, it does indicate a 98" blade, so a 110" blade with a 6" riser block would be needed.

Spec for OP's Bandsaw:

To add to that, I had a friend who had a 14" Jet bandsaw, looking at it, it appeared to be the same castings as my Grizzly G0555P. As he didn't use that saw often, he gave me a couple blades to use on my bandsaw. When I got them home, they wouldn't fit. Turns out his saw needed a 92" blade. Most of the 14" band saws on the market now use a 93", but that hasn't always been true.

That's true. I have an 18" saw and my blades are 129 I think and I'm thinking of trying a little shorter as the slide that holds the upper axle and wheel is a sticking above the adjustment yoke a little more than I care for. Standard for 18 is around 132 to 133 I think. I see in this attached chart that Grizzly sell one 18" that takes a 146" blade. It must have a tall throat. This chart may be helpful:

Someone I consider a master woodworker once told me that a master woodworker is not someone who never makes mistakes. He is someone who is able to cover them up so that no one can tell.
