Also got one in OH last week for $50. Get it from HD then you can also get the Lifetime Warranty. Buy from Craig's List and the warranty is only 3 years from when the part was made. The one I bought was made in August 2007, so if the one in the add was made around the same time, you would only get 2 years warranty. I assume this is clearance stock since it was originally $119, and that is why the part was a year old.
For reference you can get the manufacture date from the Serial Number. The first 5 digits of the one I got were G0733. Not sure what the G stands for, but the 07 is for 2007, and the 33 is the 33rd week of the year, which is sometime in August.
Looks like you can get the blades at Amazon.com. Just search for 671480001. Price is $12.87 + shipping. It looks like this is for a single blade and you have to buy 2 for a pair. Anyone know if this is the price for a single blade or a pair.
If this is for a single blade, it would make the cost for a pair to be ~$35 including shipping. That's pretty expensive.
Why can't HD stock the consumables for their exclusive brand tools?
I have a corded freud planer that takes the Bosch blades ($12 for a pair at HD or Lowes).
