  • Planer Blades

    I don't need planer blades yet but just as a " Nice to Know", I was wondering if anyone has replaced their blades yet and where can you buy them, especially in Canada. I have cut my fingers several times on the blades trying to rotate them around so I know they are still sharp.

    Any responses would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks.

    Planer blade and belt information

    I have spare blades and a spare drive belt.
    You can find these parts on:

    www.ordertree.com
    www.homedepot.com
    www.m-and-d.com [m&d mower]

    Prices will vary so do comparison shopping.

    the drive belt, rid570279001, was $4.47 at order tree
    the blades, 168142 [671480001], were $19.97 at the home depot site.

      Don't forget the Ridgid planer has a spare set included on the back of the unit in a long thin plastic orange case. It is still good to know where to buy more though.
      Still enjoying all 10 fingers!

        Be careful when replacing those blades. Some times those little bolts you have to loosen to change the blades can give you a hard time. Just one little slip and you can get cut pretty easily. Those blades are as sharp as a razor blade.

          Freud also makes them and they are usually available through amazon.

            If you depress the red cutter drum lock lever with one hand and reach underneath you can turn the drum by the belt. This is the procedure described in the owners manaul. I have flipped and changed my several times and never cut myself.
