How to make a planer knife sharpening jig


I whipped up this planer knife sharpener jig to try to save a few $$$.

It works far better than I had hoped!

A 2" X 3" X 12" block of oak, a drill and an old table saw is all it took!

Note edge sharpened (yellow arrows) is slightly beveled away. Perfect.....

Pretty good! I just went out and ran up this 2" oak plank from a log I split up from my woods. Turned out fine!

Okey Dokey then, let me rephrase the question. Can you explain how it works and how you built it, what angles etc, what are the wing nuts for? I am a little thick so please just overlook me. I really do want to know, my way of sharpening is slow as the dickens.

It's either 42 or 48 degrees on the angles, I just eyeballed it.
The wingnuts lock the blades in the slots while you work them.
Forgot to mention the shims inside that are not seen.

Yow but you can sharpen your blades and ride your bike at the same time.

Just a quick update. I've sharpened 2 sets a few times now and they still perform well.
I HAVE noticed they don't seem to last as long per sharpening as when new.
