  • Where to buy 6” x 5/8” x 1/8” jointer knives?

    Hi, I need to get knives for a 6’’ Beaver jointer. This is my first time making such a purchase, so in case there are better brands, or places to stay away from, I could benefit from those with experience.

    I found these made by Dimar.

    When I was working in joinery workshops on planers much bigger 300mm wide sometimes the knives became too narrow after too many sharpens and were left sitting on the shelf useless, I took some of these cut them in half and now use them on my 150mm planer.
    Problems are, some are too wide and protrude from the cutter block too far and make more noise (beating the air) some are thicker but that still may work for you, You do have to cut them in half and sharpen the end if you rebate with them, I would say any saw doctor will have them, the Dimar knives will be good ones, search industrial knives in your area.

      This is a great place for blade and bit sharpening. I think they also sell new :

              $30 per knife seems steep, no?

                No. I consider it cheap compared to the $48US for the 2 blades I would need for the jointer side of my Hitachi planer/jointer.

                Whoops. Just registered in my little brain $30 each not per set like I was thinking.

                    This is from Dimars website. We mostly sell their 18% as we find them to be the best value. The 6in blades you need are very common. The grade of steel determines how long the blade holds an edge and you typically see a large difference with better knives. Anyone in the tooling/sharpening business can either order or cut what you need.

                        means nothing what type of steel?   recycled cambell soup cans off shore HSS.   there are likely five diff types T1 M2 what?   . Poor quality in some new machines

                        18 percent that mark spoke of if you want quality stuff

                        anyone know why this is stick in A's for me   only site doing it and cant erase them just breeds more

                          I got some at Busy Bee a couple of years ago.   No idea what brand but they're working well.
