  • Who makes really good coping saw blades?

    OK I know Mike has the best scrollsaw blades in the flying dutchmen, and you can't beat wolf brand bandsaw blades from suffolk machinery....but where on earth, do you get really good coping saw blades?? I have a bandsaw and a scrollsaw and there always seems to be something that comes up that I end up using a coping saw,....with, I might add, what feels like a rubber band for a blade! LOL :

    Hi Dave...you might want to check out Lee Valley for coping saw blades. I bought some and found them to be better than others I've tried. If I remember right I think they are made in Germany...Reg

      OK thanks!! I also have an idea for a new product for a coping saw manufacturer, if I knew the name of one? Sorry to say, there probably isn't a manufacturer in the US anymore : >

          Dave... hi there...

          do you think its the blades or the frame? I have found the cheap blades plenty sharp and I know for sure I'm not 'overheating' them... would not a better tension keep them straight? I know exactly of what you speak... I just always cussed the frame

            Quality fret saw frames are available the accept standard (unpinned) scroll saw blades. Solves two problems; bad frame and bad blades.

              thanks all...! the Contenti site looks interesting...the old coping saw I was using was my dads and I think it was old in the 50's and it was sprung...I have since picked up a couple at garage sales and they are very stiff, so think my problem is just some decent blades....appreciate all the input, thanks! Dave

                He did the Baltimore run in October and finished in a little over 10 minutes. Of course it’s a very hilly course here and flat in San Antonio. Very proud of all of them.
