Riser block kit one of the most popular upgrades can buy. Honestly not a fan of riser blocks kits. Either they work right out of the box or they do not. Unless upping band saw motor horsepower what is the point anyway?
Having the right blades, proper set, TPI, widths for cutting task and controlling feed rate more important. 105” blades cost more than 93 ½” blades.

If going to do a lot of re-sawing might be wiser and cheaper to buy a bigger band saw to handle the task. Then can use either bi-metal or carbide tipped blades. While those blades more expensive they tend to last longer and cut cleaner longer.
