If you have an older bandsaw with the cast-iron table you do not need these at all. The way tubes will clear the machine just fine. I bought a set of the tubes used thinking I would need them, and as it turns out the stock tubes work just fine. Furthermore, when I try to install them they would go through the bottom holes in the bandsaw but not the upper holes. They were just a tad too big. I don't know if somehow these got machined incorrectly or what the deal is, but they were too large for my bandsaw. I tried reversing, etc.

at present I do not have the eccentrics. one review says you can raise the motor past the band saw table by tilting it to 45 degrees.this is true if you do not have the fence added to your bandsaw table. if you have the fence then you have to remove the bar from the table before you can raise the motor.

These eccentric tubes are not as stable as the original ones; the ones that I received way back when I bought my Mark V work great. I will not use the new version because of the vibration; I simply remove the bandsaw if I need to tilt my Mark V. Furthermore, with a Mark 7, they cannot be used. Remember, double tilt!

These are actually unnecessary and make the band saw unstable. Instead, just tilt your band saw table to 45 degrees and the way tubes will bypass the table as you raise the motor to its upright position.

The mounting tubes do what they are supposed to do; move the bandsaw over so headstock can be lifted. However, the tubes are less stable than the stock mounting tubes. The bandsaw now vibrates like crazy. Performing accurate cuts is now more difficult.
