Woodworkers know that a shear cut is far better than a straight cut. You also know that a stagger cut is much better than just a single straight knife and is a lot easier on your dust collection system. If you just happen to plane a nail or staple, it is not necessary to replace expensive knives the full length of your planer head. All individual knives are sharpened on all four edges and a simple rotation is all you need to do and your knives cut like new again. Only after all four edges are worn out, replace only the affected small inexpensive knives and you are ready to go.
You might expect to pay a small fortune for a journal head with these features, but at Byrd Tool Corp., we can manufacture a journal head to your specifications for typically a fraction of the cost you might expect.
