Model number? See link above,

Curtis, You sent me two eBay links which appear to be the same product. One listing gives the double-D dimension as 41/64" x 3/8". My Toro blade measures 1" x 5/8" so your suggestions won't work for me. Thanks for trying, though. Gary

You are dealing with 30 year old edger. And parts are not available. You will either have to modify the hole on a mew blade, with file and grinder or, use old blade and weld on new ends! Thanks.

You wrote, "...parts are not available. You will either have to modify the hole on a mew blade, with file and grinder or, use old blade and weld on new ends!" This is not a realistic answer. Nobody is going to file a 3/8"x5/8" double-D out to 5/8"x1". And it's absurd to think you could weld on new blade tips and ever hope it to be balanced, leading to wearing out the shaft bearing as well. The reason I wrote is I thought an expert might know of other sources I could not find via Google for a NOS or used blade. I assure you this is the first and LAST time I will use Just Answer.
