Hi Don, Not sure if this will help but here is the link to the operators manual for a jointer that should be very similar to yours (103.23320)

In looking around that other site people also said that your 23321 is compatible partwise with with 23320.

I tried to do a search for a full cutterhead but no luck on ebay

I have the manual but there are no knife bars anywhere for sale, I can find every other parts but no bars. matter of fact I did buy a set of knives and the return spring for the guard, actually been looking for two years, that’s why I think that someone that has one can give me a picture or a sketch and I should be able to make some. thanks for the reply Howard.

I know this is an old thread but I recently purchased a similar machine that is complete.
I’d be happy to photograph and provide measurements for any parts you may need to duplicate.

Uh-Oh. I’ve had one of these piled with stuff in my shop, just fixed a few things, started using it and didn’t checvk to see if the cutter head set screws were tight. Damaged the cutter head and need a new one. It’s been handed down, so I really want to fix it if possible. Has anyone found parts for this since 2015? Is it true that the scutter head for a 23320 will work?

These things don’t sell for much in working condition ( sold mine for $250) so trying to get parts is a fools errand IMO. It is very short bed and only a 6” cut, after upping my game with hand planes I sold it to free up shop space. Guy that bought it was getting into cutting boards so it was a good fit for him. I am happy with the real-estate I gained.

Have your say...
