      Used this on a Wilton 8201 metal/wood bandsaw. Fit was perfect. Machine work was good and even the included new blade wasn't bad.

        Comments about JRB-14 6 in. Riser Block:

        I purchased this on March 8th and it was delivered on the 14th. Very well packaged. All parts were accounted for. I installed this on a Wilton 8201 metal/wood bandsaw. It fit perfect. I did paint the riser block battleship grey to match the saw frame. I was really surprised that the left side blade guard wasn't plastic. It only took about 20 mins to install and everything lined up perfect. Highly recommend this item.

        Porter cable did not make a riser block, but this riser block kit worked great on this saw.

          Best Uses

            Comments about JRB-14 6 in. Riser Block:

            I installed the kit on a Wilton band saw. The installation was easy but for the power controls i choose to keep them at the higher position attached to the upper cover.. Put in either the high or lower position leaves a blank space in the cover. I still need to bend some sheet metal to make the cover. They should have included that in the kit. It would have been good if they had also supplied a longer section of cord to make the connection but the existing cord makes it with very little to spare.
            The kit installed works great. I did not bother with the included 105 inch blade and purchased some better quality blades.

              • A:

                The manual for JWBS-14 confirms name and part number 708717 JRB-14 for compatible Riser Block Kit so you are good to go. The reviews suggest you might need a better quality saw. The manual is also available from the manufacturer website http://content.wmhtoolgroup.com/manuals/710116K_man.pdf
