Topic tags/keywords: tip trick planer plane

I have an older style ryobi ap1300 planer, i bought it about 5 years ago at HD. They don’t sell it anymore, they’ve gone to a smaller lighter version of it and the knives are different. Since they’ve quit selling it i’ve had problems finding knives. I’ve had to order directly from for $45 a set plus shipping. Untll recently that is. A good friend of mine has the same planer and is also a mechanical engineer. we were at lowes and were looking at the knives from delta and decided that is was the same knives except for the length, the delta knives are a 1/2” shorter. We’ve both tried them and they work perfectly. They are $24 a set and the only thing you have to keep in mind is that you can’t run wood on the outside of the bed against the outside rail because of the shorter length of the knives. I don’t run wood that wide because i only a a 6” jointer, so it worked out perfect for me. The knives are half the price, work just as well and are readily available.

Check this place, I just bought jointer knives, and Andrew was very patient and knowledgeable. prices don’t seem to bad either Not sure if he has blades for the suit case style or not. (most blades are 1/8 thick . . . he also does custom . . .

Speaking of tools Ryobi no longer makes, does anybody have an AP10 planer for sale? 10 1/4” that was produced in the 80’s.

I have a AP10 clone, the manuals for them both seem to show them to be the exact same tool. Mine is labeled Tool Shop

I have an AP10 that works great, but I have upgraded to a 15” Jet. I will check the label to see if I can determine the build date, but it has been in the family for a looooooong time. I am in Minnesota, let me know if you are interested.

Jerry, I’d be very interested. I’m not looking for “new in box” although that would be nice. As a 20 something sales rep the early 80’s I sold a ton of those planers but never bothered keeping one for myself. Now I have a use for one. You can reach me Mon-Fri Toll Free @ 1-866-FEDSAW! (333-7291)
