I am planning ob purchasing a Grizzly 14" Ultimate Bandsaw before the end of December. I am trying to decide wether or not to buy the 6" riser with it. I plan on using it for some resawing, but since my jointer is only 6" does it make sense to raise the saw from 6" to 12"? I also want to use the saw to make rough cut blanks for turning bowls on my lathe. I have a 1/2 hp 10" Jet Midi lathe so I can't imagine turning anything thicker than 6" thick. Can anyone else think of any other reasons why I should get the 6" riser block for my bandsaw? Any input is appreciated.
