Most reliable sharpening services will be able to grind knives for your jointer that will work just fine. The key is to match the existing knives as far as thickness (guage) and height of the new knives. You want them to give you maximum life but not extend too far past the cutterhead when adjusted all the way down. I don't know about your machine, but on an 8" powermatic the tip of the knife shouldn't extend more than about .0012" above the circumference of the cutterhead. You can check this with a set of calipers and give the height to the sharpener, then just choose high speed steel or carbide and you're on your way.
If you check the overall length of the knives, sometimes they are slightly under the nominal length, and a 6" long knife could bump into the housing as the cutterhead rotates, so this is one other thing to check before you go ahead and order them 6" long.
But the short answer is, no problem. Just get a reliable sharpener to make them for you, buy a quality steel blank, and have him put a fine grit polish or hone on the knives when he sharpens them...

I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue. If you need further assistance, please post back with a comment to this thread.

How to set up replacement blades in a DeWalt DW677 planner? What is the best method to get the blades at the same height?


I have a Hitachi planer that came with an unlikely looking fixture for setting the blades. Perhaps your DeWalt came with one of these too. Looking at the thing you would wonder what the heck it was. If no such fixture was included, you might try a "Jointer Pal" This is a magnetic device that is designed for use with a jointer, but would probably work on your planer.
