Topic tags/keywords: jointer planer sharpening jig aluminum

I made this jig a few years ago before I bought new 15” Planer and 8” Jointer with Byrd insert cutter heads.
I do still have a 13” planer that I use mostly with Molding cutters in it. so occasionally I still need to sharpen a straight cutter. This picture shows a blade inserted and ready to sharpen.

This picture shows how to insert adjust and tighten cutter in jig

This picture shows the lines on the back of jig to make sure you are getting the cutter lined up parallel to the edge

I always used this jig with a granite plate and sandpaper glued on from 12o grit up to 600 grit

I’m betting “granite plate and sandpaper glued on from 12o grit up to 600 grit” ;-O

Cheers,

Sorry guys, this was an old post. I did not think anyone had any interest so I have not been watching it.
I did post under the last picture that I use a piece of granite about 12” X 24”, with sandpaper from 120 grit
and up to 600 grit to sharpen these knives. This jig only took a few hours to make and works very well.
If you have any additional questions I will be happy to answer.

Have a blessed week, and have fun making dust, Todd
