    John is correct about needing more than one store. It took me about 4 or 5 trips to Lowes to amass enough. I found the best material was in the 2x10s and 2x12s. There's usually enough that you can...

    Early 5 1/2s take a 2 1/4" blade, so know what flavor you have before ordering the LV replacement. However, you can always use the LV in a 6 or 7.

    The masking tape method that Roger mentioned works well. I've had better success with the blue painters tape - it doesn't tear so easily when you're pulling it off. If time permits, its best to let...
