Just purchased a used jp06101 jointer. The knives need some help, dull and chipped. I am used to sharpening my own chisels, so I will probably make a jig. I have a Veritas MkII for my chisels. Wish I could adapt it for the jointer knives. (I know Veritas makes a jig for the knives, but I am tired of spending money for a while.) The best I can tell, the primary bevel on the knives is around 37 degrees. Does this sound about right? I ask this, because I do not know what the previous owner did with the blades. It also looks like there is a slight secondary bevel. Just for what its worth, I am a firm believer in flattening the back before starting on the bevel. The first blade I started on is a long way from having a flat back. It will have when I am done.
No announcement yet.
