Default Correct Bandsaw Blade size after installing riser block

I have an old Grizzly 1019z 14 1/2 bandsaw, which used 98 blades.

I recent installed a 6 riser block - and purchased 111 blades - which I though was correct based off my math.

They are too big - so before ordering more I am trying to figure out the correct size. Should be be 110 or should I go even shorter then that?

Thanks in advance.

6" rise = 12" extra length.
98 + 12 +110

111 is 1" too long.

Welcome to the forum! When you get a minute complete your profile with first name to clear the N/a in the side panel and so we'll know what to call you.

What sort of projects are you doing? Resawing is involved, I assume... We like photos!

Mine takes a 105" blade, a 108 is too long.

This kit is the same as the Grizly,Delta,Ridgid,Jet 14" riser.

Might be time to take out the ole tape measure and literally put it around the wheels...

I did a quick search and found an article that indicates 105 3/4"...although it refers to it a bit left-handed (no offense to lefties)

Thanks. I think this is the right size.

My Grizzly 14" saw takes blades that are 105" long as well. I buy Timber Wolf blades and if you need help with blades they are more than happy to answer any question you might have.

Measure once cut twice and it's still to short.

You could get them shortened. You'll have to check around your area to see who can do it. Lee Valley sells a splicing kit. Some of the outfits that sell blades might have that too.

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.

We have a saw sharpening shop that will do it for $12.00.

110" is way too long, look at that link I posted the correct length is listed, if you scroll down to the specifications for that riser block kit.


Get the most from your band saw by increasing its cutting height capacity from 6" all the way up to 12"! Upgrade for 14" band saws. Increases blade requirements from 93-1/2" to 105". Comes complete with everything needed to convert your saw quickly and easily. Kit includes: Riser block, blade guard assembly, guide post, mounting hardware and instructions. Must be used with 105" band saw blade.

I have a Porter Cable 14" and I believe it's the same saw sold under many names... It's a 93-1/2" blade like Herb's. Are you sure your saw took a 98"?
