Delta JT360 Blades

So I have a Delta JT360 jointer and my blades are about good for butter knives at this point. True Delta replacement blades are $100(+) from what I can find, but I've seen after market blade sets on Amazon, etc for a quarter of that. Has anyone used these after market blades? My biggest fear is that this is a machine that spins a metal blade a thousands of RPMs, just want to make sure I'm not risking having a ticking timebomb in the garage.

Thanks.

I've used both Powertec & Freud replacement knives from Amazon on jointers that I've had. No problems at all.

The only thing I noticed once was that the bevel angle on the new ones didn't match the old ones. I imagine that the manufacturer chooses an angle for their original knives for a reason, but in my case, the difference seemed to have no effect.

I use knives from Holbren on my Jet jointer and have never had an issue. http://www.holbren.com/high-speed-st...er-knife-sets/

The bevel angle determines (among other things) how much strength (metal) that you have behind your cutting edge as it is rotating and depends on the cutting angle that your particular machines cutter head holds the blades at. The flat part of the blade is the part that is hitting the wood first.

Straight blades allow you to tweak those angles.
