I recently aquired a 4inch Craftsman/King-Seeley 4 inch jointer. However, the blade wedges are missing and of course, the parts are discontinued. I was wondering if anyone has an idea or an old jointer lying around so that I could get wedges for this unit. The Model # 103.21861, the wedge part # is 38778. Even pictures and measurements could be useful.
I cannot believe that the guy I got this from was using it without the wedges.

Thanks Max. Been there done that. I am trying every port in the storm. If I had the specs., I’d have a local machine shop make them out of tool steel.

Here is a link to an auction on eBAy that has the cylinder for a 4 inch model. You might try and send them a question through eBay and see if they have the wedges. The cylinder that they are selling doesn’t show wedges in it. Worth a try.

Thanks Max. It was a good try, but all he has left is the cylinder, a knob the deck and the table. Everything else is gone. But thanks for the try. I appreciate it.

Ok one more try. Go to brianipa page on lumberjocks at this link http://lumberjocks.com/brianinpa and send him a message from his page. He owns a Craftsman 4” jointer and maybe he can help or take pictures and measurements of his wedges. Maybe he even knows where some could be had…

Underneath his avatar there is a link where you can send him a private message and it will go to his email. You can also do that with Brian.

Are these the wedges? Here is a picture of the pieces I got this morning. Also a picture of the side of the jointer.
