I went and picked up a couple old craftsman joiners yesterday, and was wondering if anyone knew where I could get replacement knives for them. I have a craftsman 6” joiner/planer, and a 4” tabletop joiner. Thanks guys/gals!

Lots of places should have replacement blades…Infinity Tools, Grizzly, Amazon, Hartville Tool.

Thanks scott, I didn’t know for sure. I haven’t ever owned a jointer. Still trying to figure out all the components of it. I found a manual for a model close to it, but not the exact one. Some of the general info in it is useful, but the setup stuff is a little different.

If you go to “http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/index.action?sid=PSHx20080114×00001” you may be able to get them from Sears. Another good thing is sometimes they have the manuals in a pdf that you can download.

I have a 15 yr old 4” bench top joiner and I get my replacement blades at the Sears store.

Thanks for the info guys! I have a 4” bench top also, I just have to repair the switch on it. Im not real happy with the 6” as of right now. Hopefully new knives will help. I think the biggest problem with it right now is that whoever put the knives in it didnt get them set up right. 2 of the 3 knives don’t even touch the wood, and I think the one that does is uneven.

Proper knife setting:

Takes some time but gives the best finish possible The magnet jigs can’t push in when theres a tiny bit of bow which is not uncommon even with high end blades. A symptom of the hardening/tempering process.

Have your say...
