Not trying to do a commercial here but I highly recommend you take a look at the jointer knives at Holbren, . They are top quality and very affordable.

Unless you’re face jointing highly figured lumber i highly recommend you get some fresh knife and give it a run first before investing in a shelix head. I’ve never had my hands on that particular jointer but I assume it’s a Taiwanese clone and should work just fine.”

I agree x 2. Holbren knives before the Shellix, though if you get a Byrd from Brian at Holbren, just say the words “Woodnet discount” Brian can sell you a Byrd with the bearings cup from Byrd already pressed on, using something generic from HF could be using a great part, but mounting it on crap bearings, which could be problematic. That would only be AFTER you try the good knives to make sure it warrants throwing more cash at it.
