Be careful with arbor size / reducing bushesWord of warning here. I stupidly bought these (30mm arbor) for my Makita Chop (20mm arbor) without first checking. I then purchased the 2mm reducing (30-20mm) blade bush from Axminster to solve, as suggested. A loose fit on circumference but, more importantly, the bush is slightly thicker than the blade, which prevents the blade axle nut from locking down on the blade, i.e. it's unusable. The bushes for thinner blades (1.4mm) don't come in 20mm arbor. May be fixable with some shim washers off the web, but be aware the reducing bushes and these blades don't necessarily work for at least some setups. Rating is for this issue, as I can't yet grade the blade itself - other Ax products have been excellent for me though.
