Chad, AWESOME score $350 if you do find hex bolts and not the Tork screws, be very careful removing the bolts as since they are still installed to the factory torques. I stripped one and it was a mother clucker to get out. Best trick I found was to use a punch that can fit inside the hex hole. Before loosening each bolt, I gave each one 3 solid taps with a 16oz hammer and then they came out with reasonable force. Amazon has the conversion kit for the screws for $23. Everyone gets different lifespan from their blades based on how the work and what their working. I get pretty good mileage from mine but I generally drop the head only a half crank at a time and am okay with some sanding when the small nicks start showing up. When I look at the cost of the spiral head, I just can’t pull the trigger on that for the budget. If I ran a lot more stock or had a time vs. money scenario I might be able to justify, but until then… do you have a jointer yet????

-- I've decided 1 mistake is really 2 opportunities to learn.. learn how to fix it... and learn how to not repeat it
