Default Need some help locating a blade

Recently BobJ and several others discussed using a 3 3/8 blade in a table mounted router. I thought it was such a good idea that I immediately bought an imperial sized stepped arbor for use with a 3 3/8 blade. Now I can't find a blade with an imperial sized arbor hole!
Does anyone know any place I can find a 3 3/8 blade with a 5/8, or larger, hole?????
Your help would be MUCH appreciated.
Thanks.

The 4" blade will work just fine also I was lucky I got 5 of them on sale for 1.oo ea.

4" Carbide Tip Plate Joiner Blade

Or use the blade below
drill it out just a little bit (on both sides of the blade) with a counter sink bit and it will right into place..

Just curious, but why would you want to do such a thing? What purpose will it be used for?

Hi Dave

Once you make some quick boxes you will need to remove the lid in a safe way.this way will cut off the lid on small boxes or big ones,you can use the table saw but it's not safe.. and the big saw blade/band saw will always leave marks on the lid cut but not so with the small thin blades..almost no sanding needed..this comes from the small blade is turning at 10,000 rpm's.

see my uploads for many pictures of it done...
