I see you also have the a need to save money and invent something to get the job done! Great minds think alike! Got to keep those blades sharp by all means!
Good job!

At 95.00 for the Deulen Version, I had no choice. You know I recently sold my Jet Jointer and have been using the same Craftsman Jointer that you have and it’s really not that bad for what it is. Stay Safe!

I have the same planer, though I just upgraded last night to a 13”. It’s a pretty good unit. My one question with blade sharpening jigs like this is what does one do if one has a three knife set? My jointer is needing some attention…

I just saw another jig from a LJ member where he cut a third kerf in the bottom of the block, seemed to work just fine. I’ll have to try it out one day if I ever upgrade to a 3 blade planer. You can do a search and find it.
