Making Jointer knives from Planer knives
Having a heck of a time finding 6 inch jointer knife set locally and I need new blades fast. I need them yesterday!
I can easily pick up a set of 13 inch planer knives for a Ridgid planer.
They are just a bit wider due to thier double cutting edge.
My question, Has anyone cut down planer blades to use in their jointer?
The thickness is the same (1/8″) but like I said they are 3/4″ wide vs the 5/8″ of my original set.
If it works, I’d actually have 2+ sets of blades for $30 since they are double edged….
