This is a set of hard-to-find blades for certain old Sears Craftsman 4-1/8 jointer-planers. They are an exact fit and will make your machine cut like new. Blades are easy to change and to adjust (see below). These blades are made of carbide steel, which is much harder and more durable than the usual HSS blades.
Update: I just got an unexpected bill for a 25% duty on these, so the price has gone up even more. Some politicians say that China pays the duty. That's not true -- you pay.I sell identical HSS blades in another listing. They are a lot cheaper but won't last nearly as long.
These are beautiful blades, sharpened to a mirror finish. The blades are packed in a heavyweight zip bag individually wrapped in rust-inhibiting paper. Interestingly, even though they are the same size, they are quite a bit heavier than the HSS blades. These fit jointer-planer model numbers 149.236223 and 149.236220 and are reported to fit 149.236922, 149.236221, and 149.236993, and probably fit other 2-blade models. They don't fit all Sears 4-1/8 jointer-planers.
To see if they will fit yours, compare your blades with the drawing shown in the pictures. If your machine has more than two blades, these are the wrong ones. If your blades don't have holes, these are also the wrong ones.
The Sears part number for these blades is 2292-025-00 (sometimes written as 2292-25) -- you can find the part number of your blades in the manual for your jointer-planer, or on the Sears parts website. The blades are 4.173" long, 0.862" wide, and 0.072 thick, with three slotted holes. Sears says these blades are no longer available, but here at exeye , they are! These don't fit all Craftsman jointer/planers!Be sure to check your blades with the dimensions I have given! 113.206400 4-3/8 jointer planer. If you have a jointer/planer model that these blades do not fit and you can't find them elsewhere, please contact me with your model number. I will consider having them made, or let you know where you can find them. Belts are also discontinued by Sears but replacements are available. They are 120XL037 12" 60-tooth 3/8" width timing belts. Motors are also a part that people are looking for. Unfortunately it is a very non-standard motor and is no longer made.
I hear of two failure modes for these motors: bearing failure and cracking of the plastic case. Case cracks are more serious, but I would try "Plastic Welder" epoxy which gives a pretty strong repair. I have a PDF copy of the manual for 149.236223 available free on my website.
The manual has instructions for changing the blades. The way I set the height is to adjust the infeed table to the same height as the outfeed table (zero cutting depth) then use a straightedge to get the two blades set to the same height across their width. It only takes a couple of minutes. The item "Craftsman 149-236223 4-1/8 Jointer/Planer Blades/Knives Carbide set of 2" is in sale since Wednesday, May 5, 2021.
