    I'm looking for a riser kit for my BS1400. Does anyone know where I can purchase one?

    I put the Grizzly on mine. It is cheaper than the ridgid, and unlike home depot, it is actually available.

      Rafael, does the riser allow you to resaw a taller board? What's the max resaw with the riser? Does it bog the motor a lot to resaw at the max?
      I put it all back together better than before. There\'s lots of leftover parts.

        Here it is:

        It doubles your resaw height. With a good blade I've managed to resaw 8" high walnut. It's slow going, but it works. It only bogs down if I feed it too fast. I wouldn't resaw maple or ebony with it. You might as well use your mouth at that point.
        I got it to alllow me to cut larger turning blanks and it is fine for that purpose. If you're spending more than 30 minutes a day resawing then I would get a better BS. For occasional resawing it is OK.
        Also, I resawed some 2"x2"thick"x40" longwalnut into about 36 strips easily.
