I needed new planer blades for my Ryobi AP 1300 planer. Problem is Home Depot does not cary this planer any longer, the only source is Ryobi directly (expensive) or Home Depot online (back ordered with no estimated delivery date. Or order them from online vendor. I was in Menards looking at tools, and looked at there planer blades, to my suprise I see a 13” set of blades for a Masterforce 3 blade planer. I went home and got my Ryobi blade and to my suprise they are an exact replacement. I purchased a set 29.99 $ for 3 blades and went home. I measured the thickness of the Ryobi Blade and the Masterforce, exactly the same thickness, same width and same length, The Ryobi planer has indexing slots on the blade, and so does the Masterforce, they are in the exact same spot and same size. These blades are an exact match. So for 29.99 I have a new set of blades with a spare blade.
I installed them on the planer and it works like brand new. If you have the Ryobi AP1300 and need blades I would recomend these as an alternative.
