Product Information:

The 6" Deulen Sharpener is the answer to putting an edge on your jointer and planer knives. The key is the two brass blade holders inset into the hardwood handle. These tracks hold the blades securely and at the proper angle. With a blade in each track, it is a simply a matter of holding the handle and rubbing the blades against an abrasive surface. We recommend abrasive paper in a progression of grits from at 120 to 400 grit for final polishing. It couldn’t be easier, and proof is performance. Yes, when done you’ll be able to shave hair off your arm, but the real payoff is performance. This is so easy to do, you’ll no longer put off sharpening your blades, your machine won’t work as hard, and your wood surface will be smoother. Have more than two blades, no problem. Dan has worked out a system of alternating the blades that takes just a little more time but yields the same fantastic results. Each 6" sharpener comes with written instructions, a hex wrench and a short how-to video.

    Comments about Deulen 6" Jointer/planer Knife Sharpening Jig :

    Using this with my flat granite surface and some wet/dry silicon carbide paper and water gives me a good edge, and keeps it straight. It also does it in less time than my wet/dry grinder with home made blade- holding jig. Now I won't put off sharpening my joiner and planer knives. This tool makes the task enjoyable and efficient.

    Comments about Deulen 6" Jointer/planer Knife Sharpening Jig :

    I've looked at a lot of sharpening systems. Years ago, I finally bought a Delta sharpening center, and eventually wound up using it to test a sledgehammer. Reluctant to invest in another machine, I then began doing all of my sharpening by hand with self stick sandpaper and DMT sharpening stones, and a variety of jigs. I bought this jig to try to salvage 6" jointer blades with some damage. It worked great. I took out the initial damage with 120 grit self stick sandpaper applied to my jointer bed and then used the blades with increasingly fine diamond stones. I salvaged $100.00 worth of blades for half that. Because I already had the sharpening stones and self stick sandpaper, I only had to buy the jig. I expect the jig to easily pay for itself, say nothing of the time I avoid ordering replacement blades or running out to buy them. The Deulen jig is simple, versatile, economical, and has no cord. Onboard storage of the Allen key would be nice, but otherwise it's a 5 out of 5.

    Comments about Deulen 6" Jointer/planer Knife Sharpening Jig :

    I bought this a few days ago in an attempt to avoid taking my jointer blades to a machine shop. I had two sets that were quite dull and a bit chipped up. The device is simple, but quite well made. The blade rests in a brass slot and is held by three threaded hex screws. The blades are held firmly and don't slip, and the slots won't wear quickly. The use of the device is very simple. Insert the blades and run them across your sharpening plate. It took a while for me to work off enough material from my blades to remove the notches, but I was actually able to do so. After that the polishing went quite quickly. The blades came off very sharp, and work just like new blades in my jointer. --Note that since I had two sets of knives, I had an even number so the process was smooth. If you have an odd number of knives it will take a bit of extra time changing out one knife at a time as you work through the different sharpening grits. Overall, this is a great tool, and will allow me to get a bit more use out of each set of knives before they need to be machined.
