Has anyone been able to sharpen 13 inch dewalt planner blades? I know they aren't that expensive, 3 for $35 on ebay and you can use both sides.

I used to sharpen 6 in jointer blades on a surface grinder with magnetic chuck, but retired and no longer have access to surface grinder.

George, I know how you feel. I used to teach machine shop and welding. When I retired I couldn't do anything. Now I have to pay to get knives sharpened. Ellis

Pickup for the sharpening services here would be an independent home center or a real hardware store or a larger shop. Several grinders near me, and very little industry around here. No problem with my 12 inch jointer knives, but they"re only sharp on one side.

My considerably larger planer came with a grinder attachment, real nice. No need to remove the knives from the cutter-head, the grinding wheel travels down the knife.

I think if you found someone to sharpen them for you you would pay close to $35 for 6 edges.

Old, that someone who shapens saws blades is writing this post. Have my own sharpner. I know it's too expensive to pay someone to sharpen planner blades. What I have is said to be throw aways. I put lots of wood through the planner before I change blades. Just trying to visualize how I could make an attachment for an 8 inch grinder. Hoping someone has sucessfully done it.

I miss having access to the machine shop at school. Even though it was a WW2 army surpluss surface grinder, it worked perfectly. Loved the magnetic chuck too. Wish I had a surface grinder. Might have to add that to my bucket list. Currently there is nothing in the bucket.

Anyone have an old surface grinder that a retired person could afford?

George

I just used a few different fine stones and sharpened them myself. Saw on a woodworking site someone cut 2 slots in a block of wood to hold tha blades at the right angle so he could sharpen 2 edges with a hand stone at one time. Unfortunately, I don't know the angle to set the saw to make those cuts.

I get mine sharpened locally for somewhat less than the cost of new blades.

I have, I welded up a jig a little over 12" long I believe the angle on my blades was 37 deg.after welding I set it up on the Bridgeport with the head tilted to 37 deg. and trued it up I milled a step for the blade to set on and drilled and tapped a series of holes then made a stepped plate to clamp the blade in place. I grind them on the surface grinder can do my 6" jointer blades as well.A few strokes with a fine stone does it.

Would a floor model large belt sander like the old Craftsman work/ I have one and many more metal work projects on it than steel. It also has the disc sander and table on it. Indispensable.

Dick 3,
I was thinking about doing something similar or using a bench belt sander.

Ya the guy I would go to to sharpen things like that was 72 back in 1992 and is long since gone. He was very good but also got to old to do it any more. I know a guy who could still do it but he is also a machinist and has many tools I would love to learn to use

How about a tight older radial arm saw with a fine stone?

I've been using my bench belt sander for years works pretty good. Take out the material stop and use complete bed (long part of bed not across) Try to hold original angle with final touch up on flat side of blade with a stone,also use a fine grit belt.
