  • Ridgid 14" bandsaw

    Is this a good saw and is there a riser block available for it?

    I have the saw and I'd say right now, for the money, teh Grizzly is the best out there. The Ridgdi is OK, but there are two problems. First, the motor is not as strong as most others now on teh market. Both Jet and Delta have 1- 1 1/2 horse motors, while I believe that Ridgid still has the 3/4 horse. Also, the riser kit runs something like $150 for the saw. The other brands charge anywhere from $40-80 depending on brand. The other brands are also putting quick tensioners and better guides on their saws now.

    Hope this helps.

      I second Mike’s opinion and that is why I purchased the Grizzly. If you really want to get some in-depth insight to the Ridgid Band Saw do a search and find the threads initiated by Woody.
