  • Jointer Blades

    Not sure if this is the best place to ask this, but looked around and didn't really see any better place.

    I was gifted a used Tradesman 6 1/8" jointer (J1550W) from my dad. It has a chip out of the blades so it leaves a line on the wood. Is there a place to purchase replacement knives? I had seen another post where the answer to the OP was to just find some that looked the same. Can I just get some blades that are the same size and shape and be OK? Suggestions for sources?

    Thanks so much!

    Measure them carefully and you may find some to fit, infinity has a line of replacement jointer blades.

    FOr the time being, you can often shift blades a bit to the sides. Presumably the blades have hit something hard to put a nick in them, try shifting one bade slightly to one side or the other (won't take very far) and then realigning the height and you may eliminate that line.

      Are these blades reversible? ( 2 sided )

        Grizzly Industrial carries a good variety of jointer knives which may be helpful

          Usually all 6" knives are the same or inter-changeable. If what Lchien suggest don't work then U will have to sharpen or change the knives. When changing do not completely remove the hold down bar, just loosen the bolts/screws and lift the blades out slowly ( there might be springs under the knife ) and insert the new knife. Do one at a time usually will have 3 knives. Follow your instruction manual for setting and jointing the knives correctly before using.
