Changing planer knives is on the same list of jobs I hate to do as digging a hole or fixing a roof. I put it off until I absolutely have to do it, and when I do get around to it, I fuss and complain the entire time.

A little more than a year ago, we changed the standard knives in our 20″ planer for a set of Dispoz-A-Blade replaceable knives. The system consists of permanent knife holders, tiny magnets that locate the knives in the cutterhead, and disposable two-sided knives. The initial changeover was faster than a regular knife change because the usual ritual of setting the knives in relation to the cutterhead was eliminated.
