Just picked up a Ridgid 14" bandsaw (slightly used) and was wondering if Ridgid (or anyone else) makes an extention so that I can resaw more than a 6" wide board.
Joey: It is called a Riser kit. Not only does it include the block and long bolt to raise the top wheel, it also includes extensions for the blade guards, and a longer rod for the top blade guide. A 6" riser kit is the common size, which will give you a 12" resaw capability, if your saw has the power and stiffness to handle it. You will also need 12" longer blades which don't come with the kits and usually can't be found in HD or Lowes. You will probably have to order them, or go to a Woodcraft store or the like to get them.
