I need a source of joiner blades 8-1/2" X 1" X 1/8". I just acquired an
old joiner a lady whose husband had died. It suffered from her
willingness to let her cats live in the woodshop after he passed on. I've
reconditioned the tables and fence with naval jelly and gotten it pretty
well cleaned up. Right now I need some new blades and a new magnetic
switch for the 220V motor.
Try these folks:
Call them. It's doubtful the item you're looking for is on the web
site. With your first order, Ballew usually sends a paper catalog which
is quite useful.
The existing blades are rusted from spills and other insults. I will be
cleaning them using naval jelly, and I am going to have them reground.
But I want a spare set, and I don't see any sources on the internet, thus
my post. I'll have to replace the switch as well.
Unless they're terribly rusted, I'm sure they'll clean up just fine.
I'd start w/ the wire wheel in the grinder and then move to wet/dry
paper w/ water or kerosene or any other wetting fluid. I've found that
about the fastest way.
As a suggestion, if these are HSS knives consider carbide for a new set
-- pricey initially, but last longer and if ever do use any manufactured
materials they'll stand up...
On the switch, if you want a full mag starter, Grainger has some that
aren't too outrageous...
