Couple of years ago I bought a Craftsman 351-217330 “13 inch Professional Planer/Moulder” from a woodworking buddy because he had bought a Shop Fox 20 incher. I gave a fair price for the planer and really like most of the features on it. (Would rather have had a travelling head, rather than travelling bed, but the price was right.) This is the three knife model and I spent over an hour on-line yesterday in both the Sears catalog and anywhere else that I thought might have the knives. The catalog kept redirecting me to another page in the tools section and when I got to the new page, the knives were not there.
I have decided that Sears really sucks in their support department. This was not a cheap, throwaway type of planer/moulder, but a ”PROFESSIONAL” model that one would think they would, if not stock knives for it, at least have a link to a source.
Have noticed that a lot of folks have expressed dissatisfaction with Ryobi and Sears, along with a few other brands, and I am now officially joining the group.
Does ANYONE know where I might locate the 13 inch blades for this planer?
Thanks for letting me blow off steam and for your support.
Have a good’un
