20 inch diamond blades

So I was ordering some really thin diamond blades today as well as a 14 inch continuous rim blade for the Felker and I inquired about a 20 inch blade which my saw will accomodate. The tech there ( North Jersey Diamond) said that 20 inch blades just aren't made anymore which kind of surprised me. I still have one and it's a big honking blade but is showing wear. She said the largest industrial blade made now for this type work is a 16 inch, by no means small but not the 20.
Many things I inquire about now are no longer made. Try to find a 1/4 or a 1/2 inch by 24 inch belt in a 500 grit Aluminum oxide for a dyna file. Has to be aluminum oxide. I have about 20 new ones left from 2001. At least they still make through the waterway bits for starlite drill sets.

Sad.

Tell that to my landlord that just bought a couple of new blades for his 24" saw.

David Patchen was kind enough to direct me to Barranca which indeed does have blades and saws up to 30 inch. I lose touch. I have a 20 inch Felker which is now owned by Husqvarna. Barranca appears to sell blades from MK. At one point I was under the impression that Felker had been bought up by MK.'
It goes on.

Pete, have you tried Klingspor for the Dynafile belts? I know that they don't have the exact size that you mentioned but they produce all kinds of sanding equipment and list to 500 grit aluminum oxide in other narrow-belt sizes. They may be able to produce what you want since it's just a matter of slitting and joining the correct size.
