    What are you guys paying for edger blades? Right now im paying $1.50 wich isn't bad but I was wondering if anyone makes there own. This is something I think would save money down the road when I get bigger.
    Right now with 40 accounts Im going through about 2-4 blades a week. Just wondering if it would be worth the trouble to make my own.

    I have access to a new technology tool at our school. It is called plasma cam and it cost a huge chunk of change but i find a piece of expanded metal the right thickness and i draft out the design i would like and the hole size then tell it to cut. The metal lays on a table with a grid and it cuts them right out pretty cheap process i can draft out one blade in about 20 seconds then cut 50 of them in no time. But when i get out of school i will be SOL lol :)
