I’ve had my Ridgid TP1300 planer for 8 yrs. now and it has proven to be a pretty decent planer. The biggest issue I have is finding knives for it at a decent price. I can get them through HD for $30/set of 2 online, Amazon has Powertec brand for slightly less or, if I’m really lucky, I can score a set on eBay. I tried the Powertec ones once and they didn’t last long at all. I’ve tried sharpening them on a homemade Deulen-style jig with marginal results.
Does anyone have any other online sources for replacement knives? Or am I kinda stuck with Amazon or HD? I KNEW when I bought it, I should have gone with a DeWalt!
