I have had the 513X2 for a couple years now. Right from the get go I went with blades that I had custom made here in Las Vegas over at Nevada Carbide. I bought 2 each to start with 1/4”, 1/2” and 3/4”. I think the 3/4” blades were about $18 each, and around $15 for the 1/4” blade.
Just like you, I was shopping for blades waiting for my new saw to arrive. I was going to order Lenox blades, then remembered Nevada Carbide. I really thought I would just try the local blades and then order Lenox later on. Try other brands out to see what worked best. But the blades made here have worked so well that I just keep going back when needed. And actually, I still have the original 3/4” blades. I have gone through the other two. broke a 1/4” blade early. But that was totally my fault.
I had looked into the Carbide blades, very expensive.
Other forums that I had read back then, it seemed that the opinion was that at $18 for a 3/4” blade, you could buy ten for the price of 1 carbide. And if you break a $18 blade it does not hurt so bad.
So I just priced a Lenox blade.

$230.00 WOW
Blade length is wrong on the link. should be 10’-11.5”= 131.5
Here is a link to Nevada Carbide & Cutter.
