Try Ashcroft saw and tool at 3216 Wellington Ct. That's off Gresham Lake Rd in the I 540 and Capital Blvd area of Raleigh. 919 876 3223. They carry professional quality blades and knives at competitive prices. I just bought a Mamba Amana 12" miter saw blade last week for a little over $50. Much better balance and more carbide than the big box brands. Good folks and will UPS to you also. They also sharpen all blades and knives.
Thanks to McRabbet idea about dewalt service center i found a great place in RTP (Paynes) at HWy55/Hwy54 that had a generic Freud FI102 for only $26 versus Amazon $22 (and I would have had to order something else to meet $25 free shipping). Also they have practically every dewalt/makita/senco/hitachi item on the wall and floor with no crappy anti-theft cables attached. The prices seemed really good and I picked up 100 pack of PC #20 biscuits for 7$ (8$ amazon, i think 9$ at big box). Also it seemed like the service center was doing real service on some tools in the back that i saw through passthru window.
As to answer the question about why i needed a new one....I was anxious to get something done on some rare free time that i had. Blade is really old and has met up with the occasional nails and also quite a bit of Ipe which really hammered the carbide. Now I have a spare and I'll get it touched up at Raleigh Saw.
BTW, Ashcroft had a CMT blade for approx $40 compared to Amazon $16.
Lastly I saw a Delta contractor saw with Biessemeyer fence for 699. Looked kinda nice but i already have a cabinet saw. Dont know going price but it looked pretty nice.
edit...Hey McRabbet I just noticed your name is Payne...are you connected to the Paynes store?
