The installation was easy, the instructions straightforward.
John Young
For example, the blade guard will need another hole drilled into it and the power switch panel will need a little trimming, but it all works out.
Melodie Kapolka
These really help with the resaw aspect and are a must for the small blades used in making bandsaw box's.

I recently purchased a Jet 14 inch closed base bandsaw. It works great. Before I ordered any blades for it, I decided to get the Riser block first. The Riser block increases your cutting height from 6 to 12 inches. Your band saw blade size will then go from 93 1/2 inches to 105 inches. If you need this, get it before you buy any blades because your old blades will be too short. This is not an item that you can take off at any time. It is a permanent option. The Riser Block was very easy to install. You remove the big bolt that holds the top wheel support the the bottom and add the Riser block and use the new bolt to secure it. The kit comes with a metal rear blade guard. The one that came with my saw was plastic. The only tricky part was lifting off the upper wheel and reattaching it. Since it is fastened at the back, it wanted to tip forward. With me Riser installed, I can resaw fire wood and thick beams into boards. Think of all the flavors of wood you can now use for projects.

...no matter where I looked, Including JET's own site, I could not come up with a listing of included parts, and the tiny picture of kit found on everyone's web site is nearly useless. Sure I trust JET -- but only to a point. For those like me who have modified their bandsaw with accessories like the Carter de-tensioner, or roller bearings, rest assured this kit will still fit, and you won't lose any functionality.
The parts in my kit were as follows:
1. Rear blade guard (metal, not the cheezy plastic that came with the saw)
2. Longer v-grooved shaft for the front/upper blade guard, enabling your upper guides to extend all the way to the table-top. Read the instructions carefully to install this one, or you'll be chasing a very small ball-bearing around your shop.
3. Front Blade Guard -- sheet metal, just like the original, but with an adjustable extension. Mine didn't quite fit the bolt holes, even on the OEM guide, but a couple passes with a file fixed it in short order.
4. Cast Aluminum Riser Block and hold-down screw.
5. 105" saw blade -- toss it out and buy a TimberWolf brand.
Assembly was a snap. Mine went together in about 20 minutes. The hardest part was balancing the upper roller assembly while tightening the hold-down screw. Not really too big of an issue, but a third hand to hold the bolt steady while you hand-tighten the nut would be helpful. Alternately, you could do as I did and use a piece of tape on the bolt head to keep it from turning as you snug the nut.
After it's all set according to included instructions, you may want to go one step further and tap a 10-32 hole in the back of the original lower cast aluminum bracket. It will allow you to re-use the original power cable loom (W shaped bracket) and thus keep the power cords from chafing on the lower blade door. The instructions don't call for this, but it's never a good idea to allow power cords to rub against sheet metal.

I added the riser block to the 14" closed stand Jet bandsaw. The installation was easy, the instructions straightforward. With the added height, I can now resaw some serious wood! Just a note, if you are thinking of buying this, you will need all new blades. The standard ones will not fit after you put in the riser.

This would take 2 people with the right tools about 10 minutes. It took me 1 hour...mainly because I don't have a 15/16" wrench and my adjustable pliers would barely fit. Furthermore, my attmpt at hanging the upper arm from the rafters while tigtening the bolt 1/4" turn at a time was...uhh...nearly very dangerous. I am glad I made the purchase, but in the future would love to have known that I needed allen keys, and a crescent wrench set and someone to hold the upper arm while I tightened the nut. This thing is rock-solid, and makes resawing 12" quite the pleasure.

If you do a lot of resaw or as in my case, make a lot of bandsaw box's this is a great addition. As other's have mentioned its a two person job, but the instructions and materials are top notch.I would also reccommend that you add Carter type guides to your saw at the same time. These really help with the resaw aspect and are a must for the small blades used in making bandsaw box's. The included blade wasn't much but I didnt think it would be, so no dissappointment there. The rest of the parts were good quality and everthing fit well. Took about twenty minutes to install and a few more minutes of adjusting. Thanks to the other reviewer for the tip on reinstalling the power cord. With a Timber Wolf 3/4" resaw blade I can now square up larger pieces of "firewood" to use for my bandsaw box's and it also enables me to get away from the 6x6 dimension that was my standard. I would reccommend this add on to anyone wishing to increase the size of material they can work with.

Just installed this today but could not get blade to track in the middle of bottom wheel. Using a straightedge I determined that the top wheel was not aligned with the bottom one. This was a new saw so had never used it without the riser block. I removed the riser block and reassembled the saw, tensioned the blade, and the blade tracked right in the center of the bottom wheel so it appears that the riser block has the alignment holes or pins in the wrong place. Amazon has already responded with a ship date and I expect to have the replacement block in a couple of days. Amazon gets an A for handling this promptly. I will post again once I install the new riser.

***** Update ***** Received replacement riser block within 2 days after ordering. Installed it today and problem solved. Blade tracks in center of bottom wheel.
