What angle should a planer blade have? After sharpening, my planer makes
nice looking chips but can barely push the wood through. I suspect that I
guessed wrong about the bevel angle and the blades may be pushing te wood
toward the table, making the rubber roller work overtime. On wide cuts it
can't push the wood through at all.
I would expect that one would need to know the model. Couldn't one
brand or model hold the blades at a different angle than another?
Therefore the blade bevel may vary from brand/model? Just throwing it
out there, Bill. I don't really know if there is a "generic" angle that
works well in all planers.
Most of the after market planer knives I see for sale that identify
the edge angle show it as 45 degress. Don't know if that's the right
angle or not, but some of these companies sell them by the thousand,
so it can't be all wrong.
My DW knives measure out at ~45 degrees from the manufacturer (as
close as old eyes and 3 diopter glasses can see, anyway).
