I recently picked up a 6 1/8" jointer model number: 149.23628 . The guy I
bought it from did not have the blades or the blade (clamps?) or the
associated screws. I went to Sears to inquire about the lot and they only
sell a "kit" that runs about 75.00. I know the blades run about 10.00 -
13.00 in Sears but cannot understand how they can get approximately 65.00
for the rest. Anyone know of a place or person who might have these that I
can purchase cheaper? I mean we are only talking about 8 screws and 2 pieces
of steel? Your help would be greatly appreciated.
I too had a simular problem, when restoring an old six inch jointer that
weighed 400 pounds! Went to a machine shop and had the jointer plates and
cap screws made. It cosrt me about 75 bucks four four jointer plates and 12
round cap screws. The cap screws have round tops. If they are not round
(cap screws) you will have a hell of a time trying to align the knives.
There is a technical term for this. It is know as "we have you by the balls
! ! !"
Not the type of thing that a third party is interested in making as there is
no volume to it. So, they just have to decide how hard to squeeze
