Topic tags/keywords: jointer planer

Hi All;

I am going to be replacing the blades on my Ridgid JP06101 Jointer in the next week or so. I looked for a video on how to do it, but I wasn’t able to find anything on the process. Does anyone have a video on how to change them out? I’ve talked to Ridgid’s tech support and they are really good at explaining things, but I am by far a more visual learner. Is there a similar jointer that may have videos that correspond? Also, are there any special tools that will be needed?

Lookup Marc Spagnuolo and the wood whisperer website

His explanations are detailed, and include not only what to do but also why it needs to be done. I have changed jointer knives with a jointer pal, and with a straight stick of lumber. If you really want to get serious, use a dial indicator setup.

A quality 3-4’ straightedge and a set of feeler gauges helps to set the beds coplanar.

I have that jointer, changing the knives is simple. I do not know of a video to show you how but I can add pics to this thread when I get home if that would help.

I eould suggest a dial indicator to set the knives.

Have your say...
