    Yes, it was two or three times more from other sources I searched.

    I reckon the blades will cost me less than the grinding discs did to clean torch/plasma cuts. Plus the time saved.

    It seemed to me like I got different pricing in different searches at Home Despot, but it was confusing.
    You might be better able to do the computer-mojo and find the best deal.

    Using my Rage 2 for work and I'm lovin' it!

    Fast clean cuts ready to weld, no need to fire up the torch or the plasma. Saves a ton of time grinding.
    Why didn't I know about these years ago?

    Got a rage 3 about a week ago. Works super, no sparks and metal is cool to the touch when cutting.

    Just an additional thought from my end... We use band saws daily cutting up to 23 inches ( converted from MM) diameter steel often.
    My personal 12 inch diameter is used. It took a crane to offload from the trailer. hyde mech. production cutting saw expect 1 million cuts from the machine before replacement replace band as required 13feet six inch diameter band coolant required cuts everything over .625 to 12 + 1/32 max 240 volt 1 phase 22 year old saw when I bought it $400 plus ship
