    I just got a new Oregon blade sharpener. I only paid $190, and i am very pleased with the quality and ease of use. Also, I bought a blade balancer for $1.99. Works just fine. I'm glad I did not buy a balancer for $129, my 2 dollar one works perfect. Anyway, you can get a free catalog from russo power eqipment by going to http://www.russopower.com. Russo is where I got these things.

    Hate to bust your balls. But sharpen and balance a blade on your $1 balancer and come put the blade on my magnamatic $220 balancer. You will see how much your $1 is a piece of junk. Won't even be close to being balanced.
