Hi, has anyone found an alternative replacement of carbide inserts for the Jet jointer / planer combo? I have read on here someone mentioning a replacement but, could not find the thread. Any assistance would be much appreciated. Thank you.

The Byrd inserts should work just fine and are probably a better grade of carbide. The Jet head is made in Asia so the inserts are most like of the same origin and not as good as the German made ones Byrd uses. I’ve even seen some Chinese knockoffs with the “BT” on them but they are not from Byrd. The Chinese ones will work fine assuming they are made with uniform thickness just dull faster.

Any problems just return them.
