If you get a chance, check out my site and please sign the guestbook at www.jpnunes.net, thanks.

It seemed simple enough. Take out the old blades, replace with new ones, screw em’ in, turn on the unit and… BLAMMMMM!!! All hell breaks loose and I’m REALLY glad I replaced the safety shield on the unit. There are blades flyin...
