Hello
I have a 12’’ 1/2’’ planer and the blades on the planer are terribly dull so I looked on sears parts but they no longer sell the blades. I tryed sharpening them but did not secede. So can I buy different planer blades from a different planer such a HFT planer?? And the model number is 351.23373
Thanks for your help!!
Matthew

Have you considered just having the current blades sharpened?

It depends. Post up the Make and Model of the planer in question, that information will help in tracking down the knives… There is a good amount of after market stuff available for the common machines, and a lot of machines share knives, and can swap back and forth…

Have you asked if blades for newer models will work for your model?

I have my “disposable” Ridgid planer blades sharpened professionally. It costs 25$ a set [new are 30$] but the resharpened ones cut better and stay sharp longer than the new ones.
