I got a Kalamazoo 9x16, hydraulic/auto feed, etc., a real work horse. 1" blade.
Kalamazoo parts are *extraordinarily expensive*. If you have the variable speed pulley system, replacing that em effer will cost you about $1300--!!!! I called them, to ask them if they were insane, and the manager agreed that something was wrong with that price. The limit cutoff switch for my saw costs--are you ready??? $900!!!!! That's right--nine hundred. I've long since lost the romance with variable speed pulleys, and bought a pair of stepped pulleys from McMaster. Work great.
Blade brushes are nice, bought one from Kalamazoo. All it is is a goddamm wire wheel on a bracket, which you can buy/make yerself, ceptin they charge $130+. Seems to have a short lifespan. My saw has recirc coolant, and I re-drilled the coolant/guide assembly (boy, dat took balls, lemme tell you, given the replacement cost!), to spray the blade post-cut, post guide bearing, to spray off the chips. Seems to work well, altho I don't do oodles of cutting.
There was a thread here about 6 mos or so ago about using air to blow off chips, and someone here built such a thing. It was, iirc, basically a block with a slot not much bigger than the blade, with orifices inside to capture and direct the air downward over the blade to blow off chips as the saw runs. Was going to build one myself, but the re-directed spray seems to work well.
Best of luck.
