    Didja order the new head too????

    It seems like kind of a scam, but they say you need to order a replacement head for each different blade size (apparently so that the correct blade width is maintained at the top of the cut too...?)

    Yea I ordered booth.. Since I bought this groover used. It had a couple of bladews with it.. But I wasn't sure what size it was.. It does seem like kind of a scam.. I can see the diffrence in the bigger blades.. But not that much of a diffrence in the smaller ones... /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif
