I have inherited a Craftman jointer, Model 103.23340
It is about 50 or 60 years old and besides a little surface rust is in
really good shape. I need to find a place to get blades and the spacer that
goes with the blades. It has 2 of the blades in it but is missing one and
the spacer that helps lock it in. The blades are a little over 4 inches, i
don't remeber the exact measurement and i am at work now so i can't go look.
I found one website with 4 inch blades but they were unable to actually get
them. Does anyone know where i can order some. Thanks.
Craftsman. They were enough out of tolerance that they came out and
tried to kill me. Test with scrap (with the guard on) before you do
anything. I ultimately got a set of Freud knives. Then I gave the
whole shebang to my next door neighbor with manuals and caveats. Oh and
Sears will fight tooth and nail to protect their interests. If you want
to look at the saga, a google to the rec on jo4hn (sender) and jointer
(subject) might yield more info than you wanted.
Actually, the old Craftsman products were very good. My grandfather used
Craftsman tools 40 odd years ago and did spectacular cabinetry work. Some
of the modern material does leave a lot to wish for though.

I haven't used them myself yet, but I found this place when I started
looking for another set of blades for my 6 inch jointer. They seem to be
about half the cost of what Sears wants for a set.
