I cannot find and aftermarket unless somebody knows of one. I have one of the magnetic Woodstock International knife setting units, but I don’t think it iwll work. Not even sure what the height should be.

That model # doesn’t look right, I think the first one they made (benchtop) was a 22-540. In any case I think these will work, I used them on mine (22-540) and they were easier to use than the OEM jig..

My bad, 22-540. Using those jigs it is setting the knives about 1/8” above the cutter head. I suppose it doesn’t matter as long as the height is consistent across the blade and then adjusting for zero. Zero probably doesn’t matter much either.

Have your say...
