The thing is a rabetting jointer, so I suppose I do have a rabbeting edge. Perhaps that is the portion of the fence that is not as tall as the rest, which leaves a gap between the fence and the table.
At this point I don't feel any need to do rabbetting, so I don't need knives with the extra edge. I'll try and do precise measurements to see if it's 6 inches long or 6 and 1/8 long. It probably is. I'll post the length, width, and thickness measurements.
Thank you so much for those coupon codes. I'll use them. The knives are very reasonably priced too.
I'm going to send the Harbor Freight ones out for sharpening. There's a Rockler store that has a sharpening service that says they'll do jointer blades.
I'm sure I can get this jointer to make flat, smooth boards. It's been done by others.
