I recently moved to San Jose, CA and I am trying to find someone to sharpen my jointer knives.
I read in another post someone recommended Forrest, but I would like to try and find someone local.
Any help is appreciated. last time I threw a dart- the guy butchered my knives.
thanks.

you can do it on the machine or take them out, make a jig or buy a jig and sharpen them razor sharp, I sharpen mine in the machine unless they are nicked, then I take them out and use a little jig I made start with 100 grit work up to 600 and they work fine and it doesn’t take long at all

Deulen makes a jig (woodcraft sells it for example) making it easy for you to do so. Look it up. Of course as bowedstraight said, it is pretty easy to make such a jig out of scrap wood.
