    I have a Jet one packaged up somewhere that was advertised in the old market place, but the sale never eventuated. As I understand it there are different profiles to the throat castings used on the 14" bandsaws. The Jet and the Gary Pye ones were beefier than other's I looked at. The kit includes the longer bolt and blade guard you need if you insert a riser in addition to the riser bock itself. If you are interested I can measure the casting to see if might fit the Hafco.

    I have a craftmaster bandsaw , and fitted a commercially available raiser kit. The saw functions as well after fitting as it did before. Increased the cutting height as intended. Go for it.

    Hi Deckell, I'll work out postage and PM you. If you find it doesn't fit when you get it, there was another member who has expressed interest in the kit who has a Jet, perhaps in that case you could work out a deal with him.
