Planer blades, also known as planer knife, are cutting tools used in woodworking to smooth and level wooden surfaces. They are commonly used in planers, thickness planers, and jointers to remove material from the surface of the wood and create a smooth, even finish.
Wood planer knives are typically made from high-speed steel (HSS) or carbide, which provides durability and sharpness to the blade. They are designed with a sharp cutting edge and a specific angle to efficiently cut through wood and produce a smooth surface.
Planer blades come in a range of sizes and configurations to accommodate different types of planers and cutting applications. They may be designed with different cutting angles, blade materials, and tooth patterns to produce different types of finishes on the wood.
