Hi,
Decided to replace the blades on my trusty (has always done what I asked of it), old ( 10yrs +)
Wickes electric planer today.
I had previously brought some modern 5mm x 82mm reversible blades & expected them to fit, as you can see from the photo's the Wickes blades are very different - about twice the depth & having various raised portions & dimples to locate the blade in the blade holder.
After a trawl around eBay I cannot find any blade that is even similar
Modern Wickes own brand planers seem to use the standard reversible blades.
Does anybody know where to buy blades that will fit?

Thanks in anticipation,

Alan

I wouldn't bother, those blades even if you could find them will cost more than a new planer.

I'd just get a new one too.
I reckon that planer could be quite a bit more than 10 years old as well.
It's got the look of much older kit.

ermmm ive got an elu planer and the set up for the blades looks similar to that. back the 3 bolts off and it slides out. a standard blade like what wickes sell fits between the 2 bits of metal
