Default Planer Blade Sharpening Jigs Makes?

I have a Scheppach Tiger 2500 wet grinder sharpener. I'm looking into getting a planer thicknesser. I think it would be cost effective to resharpen the blades.

The Tormek SVH-320 Planer Blade Jig will do the job but is rather pricey. I know Jet jigs will fit on the Scheppach, I think there are other makes too? I've searched the net and found references to planer jigs but nothing definite. Are their cheaper planer, thicknesser blade sharpening jigs that will fit the Scheppach?
Thanks.

Hi peter,

if you do a search for planer blades on youtube, you may find something.

I remember seeing a clip from UK on sharpening planer blades.

Hi James, thanks,
The 3rd one was quite neat but I'm looking for a jig that I can fit to my wet grinder, like the Tormek one but not as expensive.

Peter,

I have the Scheppach 2000 and have not worried about planer blades as my use is minimal and it would take me years to need to resharpen. Ii is cheaper for me to buy a new set of Ryobi blades. These blades are interchangeable with most 12 1/2" planers.

You will need to look at your intended use, the cost of new blades and the cost of the jig.

If you are going to have major use, I would bite the bullet and buy the Tormek jig.

What make/ model planer are you considering?

Derek Willis posted a thread a little while back for a homemade planer/jointer blade sharpening jig that should do the job for you.

Someone I consider a master woodworker once told me that a master woodworker is not someone who never makes mistakes. He is someone who is able to cover them up so that no one can tell.

I am Australia and have a good working relationship with my local saw doctor, courtesy of a previous job. They have a commercial machine that can grind blades from blanks or touch up existing blades, high speed steel or carbide, as sets of 2, 3,or 4 blades to 36inches long. They reground a set of 3 six inch blades from a secondhand machine for me a while ago for AU$15.00. At that rate, there are a lot of touch ups in the price of sharpening jig.

I have the Tormek grinder and planer jig. It takes some time to do and it was an expensive jig. But the results are amazing, sharper than factory new or my local sharpener. Freshly sharp blades on my planer leave a slight sheen to the wood due to the smoothness of the cut.

One more option for virtually no money. This is very similar to the one that Derek posted a while back.
