This set of jigs uses powerful magnets and micro-adjusting ability to set planer knife blades to within .001". Here's a link the OWWM bulletin board with some additional discussion on knife setting for old planers. Extend the life of your knives and improve finish quality with our easy-to-use knife setting jig. This Planer & Jointer Knife setting jig will help extend the life of your knives by allowing you to set them quickly and accurately. Click the button below to add the Adjustable Planer Magnetic Jointer Knife Setter Jig Gauge, Saves Time & Wood to your wish list.
I also have the factory jig and it too is OK but you need three hands or a jig to hold the jig. The jig uses powerful magnets to hold Planer or Jointer knives in perfect position, freeing-up both hands while you tighten the jib nuts.
The Planer Pals got a better writeup that the one that you are looking at the last time I saw them reviewed. Remove the old planer knives and clean the knife pocket out to be sure it is free of saw dustand pitch. Next install the sharp blades for the correct rotation and keep the gib bolts loose sothe knives can be moved into proper elevation position.
Next reattach and position both of thesetting gages spaced apart on each end of the planer head so that the magnetic tip of thedepth gage are located directly over the tip of the knife.
The strong magnets on the depth gagewill hold the planer knife to the correct elevation and level to allow you tighten the gib boltslocking the knife tight.
