  • New to the groups

    Hi all,

    I am new to the groups here, just stumbled (google) across them the other day when I could not find the site I used to order by blades from (Flying Dutchman of course). Definitly one of the most comprehensive groups I have found on Scroll Sawing in general, I look forward to reading more as time permits.

    I have been scrolling for 4.5 to 5 years. Mostly just silhouette's some with a lot of frett work and other without much. I have started making my own patterns for some basic stuff but I still mostly work out of books or some from sites like Shadez has up (not great at his patterns yet).

    I have just started selling my work recently in an attempt to allow my wife to be a stay at home mom.

    Well back to my day job, got a product about to roll out the door and some QA work that needs to be finished.

    Looking forward to meeting everyone.

            I put those on my 20" Dewalt a couple years ago. Big improvement from the one Dewalt had....

            We need to know what saw you are using, as they have different clamps.

            When a blade slips out, the tendency is to tighten it more. Make sure you haven't over-tightened the clamp forcing the sides apart. Most OEM clamps are made from soft aluminum so once it starts they will continue spreading and it will be near-impossible to keep the blades in place.

            Blade slippage is a function of the blade clamp holder and or the set screw and thumb screw with swivel.

            Tricia what saw do you have? Does the blade slip or it just won’t tighten?
