Default ISO Riser Block for Grizzly G1019Z Bandsaw

Hi All!

I'm running a Grizzly G1019Z bandsaw. The 6" riser block kit was discontinued by Grizzly. Can anyone shed some light on a 6" riser block kit that would fit this machine?

Thanks!
Ron

Welcome Ron. I know that the cheaper Delta machines are made in Taiwan just like Grizzly's are. Maybe one of the members who has one can measure the bolt pattern to see if it's the same. Delta's 13" planer has the same castings and gearbox as maybe 6 other branded machines. I think there's a good chance there are other bandsaws that use the same frame as Delta 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.

I put a Grizzly riser block on a 14" Rigid saw so you might want to look at Rigid

I looked long and hard for a riser block for my old Delta. The only one around back then was the Griz, but you had to machine off a positioning pin to do it. Hope someone comes up with it Ron, but one caution, it is not as rigid as a steel spine band saw, so make sure that bolt is secure.

I finally gave up and sold the saw. it's fine for everything but resawing.

The more I do, the less I accomplish.

Try here:https://www.amazon.com/Bandsaw-Riser...26&ref=sr_pg_1

The Ridgid fit my Ridgid bandsaw, it is the same as the Grizzly block, but all the other extenders needed are for the Ridgid bandsaw.
I am not sure if the guard and height extenders are the same. Most all the brands fit all the different saws, but the additional parts might not.

For what it's worth, I've heard of people making their own.

@JOAT If a guy was a welder and had an "I" beam scrap, it would be a piece of cake.

Don't forget a precision grinder/surfacer.

"I" beams are pretty uniform, might have to use some shims if no surface grinder was available.

Two 1/2" thick plates with pieces cut off a 5" x 3/8" thick flat bar welded between them. That should be pretty accurate and easy to fabricate. You just need to be able to drill the holes accurately and in line which could be done with a jig on the DP.
