Default Bandsaw Riser Block

I have a Rockwell Model 14 Bandsaw and I want to get a riser block for it so i can cut larger bowl blanks and start cutting veneers. I don't know which riser block to get. I measured the rod that holds the guide for the blade and its a cylinder, slightly less than 1" in diameter, like .98". It has a flat section which is .45" across and it is .9 in diamter at the flat segment. This might help in determining what riser to get.

im not familiar with that saw, if it is an older saw, it may be difficult.

you really need the riser that is built for your saw. the riser kit also comes with a front and rear blade guard and a guide post and a replacement bolt.

you really need to replace all of the parts.

i just did a lot of research for my bandsaw. i havent added the riser kit yet, but did add a kreg fence, which is the best thing ive done to my saw.

after just reviewing your other posts, you may find some other that may fit. according to BobJ the grizzly may fit. his opinions are usually exactly right. now watch me get a message from him "usually right?"

light travels faster than sound, this is why some people seem bright til you hear them speak.

The saw is about 15 years old, i'm not sure what that classifies it as.

I'm thinking a Delta kit would fit it.

"The blade will be 105""

I added a riser kit to mine last year. What's obvious but what I didn't think about at first was that you'll need all new blades. It's a good time to budget for a really good blade or two. I went with a TimberWolf, but there are others available too.

the delta riser block is a little expensive compared to the other riser blocks, like, about double the price

i just found ariser block on ebay, a delta block
cgi.ebay.com/Delta-Band-Saw-Riser-Block-/230490502451?cmd=ViewItem&pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&ha sh=item35aa4df533#ht_500wt_896
which is currently at 8 dollars

it only includes the block, so how much work would it be to make the blade guard assembly and the guide post?

to make the guide post could i get another peice of metal bar the same diameter as my current one, weld it to the current one, and then grind a flat spot the same size as the original bar with an angle grinder? I'm going into 10th grade, which is when we switch from middle school to highschool in my district, and i'm not taking shop next year and i don't know the shop teacher there, so i nolonger have access to the shop.

I think i'll get a grizzly, but which one? I looked over my bandsaw and found the demensions near the post area are 3.3" by 4.65"

It also say 112D, which i guess is a serial or something.

And then in another area near it, it says:
126-06
089-2002

but the slashes look like division symbols
