No, a 14" Rockwell will not tension a 3/4" blade correctly. You'll likely bend the top adjustment casting that carries the top axle shaft. Personally, a 3/4" blade is major overkill. That saw doesn't have the horsepower to utilize that blade. Proper feed speed on a 1/2" blade will produce very good results.
