I think the Ridgid Bandsaw is the same saw as the Grizzly G0555, as well as one of the Jet 14” models. So, with that being said, I have read quite a bit about some folks using riser kits from any of these to fit their saws…

For myself, I own the Ridgid and it has done well, I do not have the riser yet, but I have resawn up to it’s 6” capacity and it has done really well. I replaced the standard blade with a 1/2” timberwolf recently, and the true potential for this saw is now realized for me.

I would recommend any of these, as they go on sale every so often… I actually saw the Ridgid on craigslist here about a month ago for $50 and it was lightly used. Definitely buy a new blade with whatever you buy. They are cheap and you will not be disappointed.
