Thank you Frantic .
I'm guessing around $500.00 without the blade .
I went with 18" simply because of economics the prices for blades really start climbing after 18."
In what I have priced anyways .

Awesome looking material Lloyd. I'm going to get one of those magnetic block heaters and put it on the saw . Plug it in a few hrs before I go cutting, should heat up the oil and inturn warm up the rest of the saw.

The pellet stove I have in the shop is our old house unit and only runs a few hrs at a time and our new house has been trouble free (Knock on wood) for 3 years now and we use it as our main source of heat with propane  furnace as backup.
I do miss a wood stove we might put one in once this pellet stove quits.
