Bought blades off Ebay maybe 10-15 years ago.I called Delta support and he didn’t suggest them as they were 7/7 rather than the 1” blades they sell for the planer…

Anybody used anything less than 1” before?....

Those knives can be sharpened over and over again until they are too short to be safe… I would think that a 1/4” or more could be removed with them still being fine – it should be obvious when they aren’t. General rule is that the locking screws for the lock bar be firmly over the knives. Once the edge of the knife reaches past that point, then they are too short to be safely used. The manual does not specify a minimum width unfortunately.

Cheers,
Brad

I keep thinking if they ground off 1/8 sharpening over time it would be the same.

The blades are dull and I may have a cabinet job coming up so I thought if I have to pull them I’d try the others. They charge by the inch to sharpen, so I’ve been delaying it…thks…

Same here… $1 an inch… and you can get new knives for not much more – about $40 for my Makita. But I think you will be fine… 1/8” is not a lot and would be the same as stock knives that have been sharpened multiple times. Either way, it’s always good to have a spare set on hand so you don’t have any down time – which usually happens at the worst possible moment :)

Brad

Pulled and replaced today. I had never pulled the tape off the new blades but they did say Delta. Thx…

Have your say...
