Default Rockwell 4" Jointer 37-290 knife thickness.

The knives on my Rockwell are 3/32" thick.
A guy online sold me 1/8" thick knives - said he's been selling them for 15 years.
Of course they didn't fit. Lock bar would have to be thinner.

My question:
Anyone here have a Rockwell 4" jointer model 37-290 that uses 1/8" thick knives?
How thick are the lock bars? mine are 1/4" thick.

Thanks,

I rearranged my shop space and now have room for a 6" jointer!
I'll be selling the Rockwell on Craigslist after I get the knives sharpened and aligned.

I bought the Rockwell for $125 and likely will try to sell it for $75. The balance I credit to "jointer education".
