Yikes that was long! What I did like about and hadn't thought of on my own was the suggestion of offsetting blade runout from the arbor runout.

It would be a pain in the butt to go through the process every blade change, permanently marking the arbor is easy.

Can you safely etch the side of a blade without changing it balance?

Never bite the hand that looks dirty!

Ron,

I would think a "light" etch would have no appeciable effect on the balance of a blade.

I thank you too, I was going to do that tomorrow, get the book out and all that you know!! Now I can watch the podcast too. BTW The cover plate was perfect, just in case you were wondering~~

I have a very good memory, just short is all.
