Topic tags/keywords: jointer blades

This has turned into a nightmare! I have spent hours on the phone and computer with no luck. I found one place that sells the blades individually for $17 a blade which seems high to me. My jointer is #JP06101. If anyone has bought blades for this jointer, PLEASE reply or send me a pm. Thank you.

Not good. Hate it when they don’t carry blades where the equipment was sold.

I couldn’t find blades for my jointer either. I researched and found this company. They will cut any size blades you need, even carbide. All you need are the measurements. Hope this helps.

Available right here…probably the place you found earlier. High because the unit has been discontinued for almost four years.

Correction, they will cut almost any size blade you need. I asked them about knives for my Makita and they said they don’t do them. Otherwise, I’ve heard nothing but good about them (my lumberyard guy orders from them).

Thanks for all the help. You guys are the best! I ordered the Freud blades Greg linked just this minute. Paul, that e replacement wanted over twice as much as the Freud blades and my jointer is only 3 years old .I’m keeping all this info for the future though.

Don’t hesitate to send your existing blades out to be sharpened Andy…. you should be able to get several turns out of them.

In my limited experience, jointer blades are pretty unniversal. Just measure the length, width and thickness.

Good luck!

ssnvet- I’m so cheap, I even have my Diablo saw blades and ‘disposable’ planer blades sharpened. The jointer blades will go to the grinder as soon as I get the new ones.
