  • Jointer blades getting nicked.

    I have owned a Ridgid Jointer (6") for about 4 years now. I bought an extra set of knives. I mostly use Red Oak. I have noticed on the last two knife changes I get evenly spaced "nicks" in the knives. The are not very deep nicks, they sand out of the wood.

    This last set I only used for red oak. No nails or such in the wood. and the nicks appeared. It didn't take long for them to show up.Too soft of steel from Ridgid? Where is a good place to buy better ones? A harder steel perhaps?

    Thanks
    John
