Hi Folks: I`ve got a 12 year old Craftsman 30" Rider.I found a
stack(8) of Walmart closeout 30" MTD blades for $1.00 each.My
question---problem is how to I convert the mounting on the deck shaft
to accept the MTD 3 hole pattern?The Sears have the 1 hole.
*I originally planned to have a local machinist shop Bore/Punch them
holes-----but he informed me
"Not!" These things can explode/shatter he said?
Anyway,what part/parts will I be searching/asking for to make this
adaptation fairly painless/cheap? Thanks for ny and all ideas
Your going to hire a machinist to salvage $1 blades???
Do it the right way and get the proper blade. Put the Walmart blades

I would recommend that you not use the wrong blade. They are not so
expensive that you should be putting extra holes in them and finding out the
hard way that it was a mistake.
However the machinist's comment was odd. Lawnmover blades are rather soft
to prevent them from shattering on rocks.
