MAGNETIC SETTING DEVICE FOR PLANER BLADES
A pair of adjustable jigs for accurately setting up your planer blades within their block. With a lockable vernier setting and magnetic feet, all the blades in the cutting block can be set accurately to the same height. This is most important to give a clean finish to your work. The feet are magnetic and swivel to accommodate different diameters of cutter blocks, whilst the knife itself is held in place by another magnet. The beauty of these jigs is that the blade is held by the magnets allowing you to set the height and secure the blade in one operation. Then you can repeat the process for each blade, keeping the same setting each time. If you are using these jigs on a surface planer or planer/thicknesser, you can set the blades to the outfeed table and keep the jig settings for accurate repeat settings each time the blades are sharpened or replaced. Keep the jigs safe in the supplied wooden box. Please note, these are made by the original design manufacturer and so are the best quality vernier setting jigs available.

This planer thicknesser knife setting jig set offers a simplified and fast method to set the height of the cutting knives after sharpening or change them. The jigs can be used with most planers, thicknessers or combination machines with open access to the cutterblock.
Please note - this jig cannot be used with machines with fixed aluminium tables as these are not magnetic.
When refitting planer knives, it is most important that they are re-set and fitted correctly.
Each blade must protrude from the cutterblock by the same amount to give a clean cut, otherwise they will cause an imbalance and a vibration which could damage the machine and will also result in an uneven cut.
These jigs are fitted with strong magnets which will clamp it to the cutterblock.
The feet swivel to account for different diameter cutterblocks.
The knife itself is held onto another magnet which is height adjustable.
The height can be set extremely finely with graduations down to 0.15mm.
With the knife loose in the block ensure both setting jigs read the same, then lock the blades into the block and repeat for the other knives.
Once the jigs are set and locked to the exact setting for your machine, the setting will be saved for future fitting of new or re-ground knives.
