We had a 180 where I used to work and blade grinders can be hard to find, either someone doesn’t know what they have and it’s almost free or they want what a good used planer would cost just for the grinder. We did end up finding one in good shape for about $500 if I remember correctly. It was worth it, having the knives sharpened at $1 an inch, plus having to remove them, set new ones and having more spares than we needed was getting frustrating.

Occasionally the show up on owwm.com (?) but they can be expensive.

They are showing up more often as those can afford it are going with carbide insert heads “very pricey due to the large diameter”.
One complete grinder went locally on CL for $350.
You will like that 180!
