Default Have a blade question for whitewolfe710

Hi and welcome to the foums. I have a blade question I own a delta 16" scroll saw and was wondering what type of blade is good for a 1" board. I know that there are differences in blades do to thickness and I don't usually use lighter thickness's. Is there a chart anywhere that I can get a copy of?

The best place to buy blades is from my buddy Mike heres his site addey http://www.mikesworkshop.com/
Tell him Darryn or the whitewolf710 sent you over.
we use the chart as a reference. When emailing Mike ask him which blade he would suggest for what ever species you are cutting
Mike will send you a sample to try and once you try his blades you will be hooked

Hi whitewolf710

Thanks for the great link

I like this guy already

"Quality is when the customer comes back,not the product."

Mike
"Many people make things to sell and do craft shows because it is fun.
They hope to make enough to cover their cost and maybe a little more.Some, but very few, actually make a living.
Enjoy yourself doing scroll sawing.
Buy a new tool from time to time, and go out for a nice dinner from the money you made. But a living?"

Mike
"Most scroll saw blades will not cut a straight line, like you do on a band saw.
The blade wants to go to the right, therefore you will notice that you have to push your wood to the left to stay on the line.
This is due to a little burr on the right side of the blade, when in the saw.
Most people think that the blades are stamped.
This is not true.
They are milled.
However, there is still a burr, sometimes more or less.
A brand new cutter will leave less of a burr than one that is wearing out."

And I thought it was me, I can't cut a straight line on a scroll saw and now I know why.
Thanks Darryn and Mike

Hi whitewolf710

I was almost sure I would like Mike
of http://www.mikesworkshop.com/

"Quality is when the customer comes back,not the product."

I order the sample pack of the Flying Dutuchman Blades on Fri.last week and I got them in the mail today, that's quick and on top of that free shipping.

Blades look great, all 60 of them for $12.95 I have not tried them yet but that's coming up.
I have looked hight and low for the small one in the pack(FD-SR #3), and low and behold there is was... in the pack.

By the way I have been using the Olson brand of blades what do you think about that brand >?


Thanks again for the tip.
Bj
