I recently got a Model 24 Diacro hand shear for free from my dad's plant, they were clearing some stuff out... Yesterday when I sheared a 22" piece I noticed a notch in the cut... I took a look and the bottom blade is cracked... Di-acro gave me a quote of $580 for a set of blades...

Does that sound about right? are there other sources for blades?

I was looking online but I wasn't able to find a whole lot of stuff... At that price I would almost be more inclined to put that money into a larger stomp shear and hang onto this one until I can find a set of used blades for less $$..
