    hey guys
    where can i get decent quality blades cheap? Lesco gets me for about $50 a set with taxes . . . I've seen mowparts mentioned here but if some of you long-timers could chime in . . . i know one guy who doesn't sharpen his . . . he says you can only get one sharpening out of them anyway so he uses them and tosses them . . . i sharpen mine using a 7 inch angle grinder. I keep them until the fins show too much wear. this is two or three sharpenings tops(we have lots of sand here). If I could find some cheap enough though i might agree with my friend and just discard them.

    looking for low cost mail order blades
    thanks
    pete

    Just received two sets of high lift blades from mowpart.com for a good price. They have a lot of good stuff and the blades I have work great. You may be able to find some good deals on ebay, but mowpart is easy to do business with.

    :confused: what do you do when you don't have a local guy? your local guy is an hour one way no matter which direction you go.

    If you do not have a local supplier, I do not think you can go wrong with this company

    WTF is he talking about. I run mine till the ends round off.
    I sharpen daily, zip, zap, bal. and mow. worth every second of my time to keep that edge. blade life is excellent. I would go broke in no time with throw away blades.
    What a nut case.
