Default Slitting saws

Does anyone know a source for slitting saws with a 3/4" bore? 2 to 3 inch diameter. I was happily slitting away today and oh oh,, a spark. Before I could back the saw out it was toast. Jeez,,, and I was only cutting 1010 steel.

1 inch is the norm but this old machine has a 3/4 arbor. As seldom as I use it for slitting I'd like not to buy a new arbor to accommodate the 1 inch bore saws.

Hi, try machining a reducer washer to fit the 1" slitter to the 3/4 arbor, might work?

Checking MSC.. Whooa!!!
Rex, the washer idea is good but it needs a key to engage the saw.
