If you couldn't see the nail how would Lowes have seen it?
You need to get a "wizard" metal detector and check anything you're
going to cut. I think mine was $75.00 and it has saved jointer blades,
planer blades and.............you name it.
I bought some chestnut that came from an old barn recently and it
must have been the target for turkey shoots it had so much lead shot in

Have them send off the WWII for repair and/or sharpening (by Forrest)
and provide another blade for you in the interim. It's only fair.

So what do you want Lowes to do? Run every single board through a metal
detector? For what? To catch the errant nail in one out of a hundred

Bob, since my blade is fine, I would feel guilty about taking anything from
Lowes. I still was able to use the board, so, I really did not suffer any
damages. It's just the thought that this sort of thing is done, probably by
You <must> be kidding!!!! You really think a wholesale mill is going to
go through and tack together a minor split in the end of a tubaX? What
parallel universe are living in? :)
Most likely it was done by another individual who then returned his
excess material after is project was over as another poster has already
postulated...it's <highly> unlikely it was done even by an over-zealous
You're making mountains of molehills here...
sounds like a non-problem to me... no blade damage and sounds like good customer
service, as some companies would have given you another 2x4 after waiting an
No harm, no foul??

My wife offered to pick up a can of Johnsons wax for me.. looked at wally world,
k-mart, HD, OSH, etc., etc. and couldn't find it.. (she found me a can of some
strange white "non-skid" wax that I put on a high shelf, in the back)
I walked into Lowes and they had the wax (and more other waxes than I expected)
