Hi Corey

I'm not a guru but I sure like FD-SR #3 & #5 blades I got from Mikes #3 will cut 3/4" thick walnut/maple/plywood ver. just like a butter and no sanding needed after the cut.
You can find the FD-SR blades in town I'm sure but the ones from Mike are better than the ones I found in town.(last longer and stay sharper)

Check out the links below and the Q & A link for sure.

What blade do you scroll guru's recommend for 1/4 and 3/8 hardwood? Not double stacked, just singles. Also if I was using 1/8 and 1/4 hardwood plywood what would size blade would you use for that?

Thanks,
Corey

Thanks guys, I have a selection of FD blades. Just wasn't sure what blades would work best in these thinner materials. I got the most out of the following link which was on Mikes page:

Same ones (FD-SR #3 blade) I cut 1/4" and 1/2" all the time for templates and it cuts it so clean you can hardley see it when you put the parts together as one again.

BJ, have you scrolled any 1/2 inch MDF and if so what did you find worked best for it?

Thanks!

they do like to wander to one side(right side) a bit in the MDF stock but that's true for most scholl blades also.

Thanks BJ, got a dozen of those. That's what I want to do is make templates. About the only thing my scroll saw will get used for these days.
