Many planers have disposal double edge indexed blades, but most jointers have resharpenable HSS knives….not sure why that is. Because they’re resharpenable, they’re not indexed so you need to reset them every time you remove them. I usually just use a flat piece of wood overhanging from the outfeed side to set them.
