Topic tags/keywords: jointer question

I bought a used jointer on Craigslist and after removing the knives for sharpening, I am ready to re-install the knives. Each knife is held in place by a wedge with 4 lock screws. The wedge has a flat side and side with two ridges. Can someone tell me which side faces the blade? The past owner has the two ridges facing the blade but the profile diagram in the manual would lead me to think it should be the other way around. The manual is very vague however. Could someone with this jointer verify for me the correct direction? I appreciate any help.
