I have been wanting new planer knives for some time now and I finally bit the bullet and spent 150 on the new blades. I made a few set blocks to ride on the top of the planer to reference the knives on both sides. It seems that I made them too short and the blades are about 1/8 of an inch higher than the old blades. Is that ok if they are all consistent and the gib nuts are tight?
Here you can see the shiny edge is the blade bevel and to the right is the 1/8 inch protrusion.
you think I should make a new jig? Reset them again?
Is there a better way to do this without buying those poorly reviewed magnetic jigs?
I should probably mention this is onan old powermatic 15 with straight blades.
I appreciate any and all help,
