Many times people will buy replacement blades for their tools, expecting the original blades to wear out or break fairly quickly. When craftsmen buy replacement blades for their original Makita planer, they leave them lying around to collect dust for longer than expected. Even though the original blades can last through massive amounts of work, it can sometimes be difficult to tell if the edges are getting too dull. If the machine sounds too loud and the boards are not going through the machine smoothly then it means that your machine is functioning incorrectly due to dull cutting edges. After spending so much money on your planer, there's no reason to be stingy when it comes to getting the right accessories for it. Here at Tools Plus we carry reliable replacement blades for your Makita planer.
