Planer & Jointer Blades
Planer blades have an extremely sharp, precision-tooled cutting edge to easily plane smooth even the hardest of woods. A sharp blade is essential to get the optimum performance from your electric planer and to achieve a smooth and flawless surface, giving your work a professional finish. Power planer blades are available in several different lengths to fit all kinds of power planers, and there are many different blade accessories to choose from.
Planer blades are made from various materials, including high speed tool steel, which may be laminated, multi-tempered or vacuum heat-treated to increase blade life. For longevity, when it comes to power tool accessories, blades made from micro grain carbide last up to 30 percent longer and are 10 percent sharper than normal tungsten carbide blades. Disposable planer blades are double edged and reversible. This gives them an extended operation time and no time is lost on the job for sharpening. You can simply replace it with a fresh blade when you notice that the cutting edge is no longer as sharp. Re-sharpenable blades are also available as a cost-effective solution.
The blades are easily located in the correct position by aligning the machined locator holes with the cutter head. Some wood planer blades are fracture-resistant so they don't shatter if they accidentally pass over a missed nail or a staple. For joining together laminates or wood, jointer blades with six very strong carbide teeth cut standard 4-inch biscuit slots. This guarantees constant and exact cuts with every pass for a perfect joint every time.
Whether you're working on the job site or building your next DIY project in the shed, using a sharp new blade makes any planing job quicker and easier. With our extensive selection, you're sure to find the exact blade you need to complete a multitude of jobs.
