The whole kit from Blackburn includes the blade. I paid extra to have it sharpened. Isaac uses a big round gullet, moves a lot of sawdust. The slab I need to re saw is 14" wide so anything smaller that a 48" blade would be much to inefficient to be useful. Look here.

Glen, I was offered an antique one for $1,000. It was cheaper to build it! Also not hard.
