For those with a 14″ bandsaw with a 6″ riser block, I too cussed mine until I changed the motor from the stock 3/4 hp to a 1 1/4 hp.
It is now one of my favorite tools in the shop. The increase in HP was true game changer.
Re-sawing KD lumber is not perfect, but hey its a bandsaw. Cutting large green bowl blanks went from a cuss storm to a pleasure. The motor was relatively inexpensive compared to the cost of a new saw.
I really enjoy the show,
