    Hello Brenda--
    Welcome to the best scrolling forum in existence. Always glad to have a "newbie" enter the scrolling experience and the forum. There is an outfit called "MicroMark" which deals in miniature tools and hobby supplies. They put out a catalog, but I think they have a web site (doesn't everybody?). You might try a search engine to find them. It may be just www.micromark.com . They might have the Dremel blades.

            Welcome aboard. As far as the blades you can check with Micromark but I have misplaced my catalog just type in the name and it will lead you there. Also as far as free patterns look on the left side of this page and scroll down to Scrolling Community and click on free Scrollsaw Patterns. You can also do a Google search and you will get hundreds of hits.

            As far as putting clocks together you do not mention your skill level and woodworking abilities. I would highly suggest getting a beginners book such as John Nelson's books and they will explain and have photos to help. Then when you have specific questions come back here and you will get tons of help. Good luck.

              Mico-Mark website is: www.micromark.com. I could not find the 3" pin blades. Years ago I bought them at Sears. I don't think they have them anymore but you could check with them. They might have some left someplace.
              It might be time to get a new saw, like the 16: Varaible speed Delta. Around $ 100.00. http://www.amazon.com/gp/homepage.ht...666778-8440159
              You could cut a lot more intricate patterns with regular 5" flat blades. It takes a big hole to do inside cuttings with a pin blade.

                  Load pdf and scroll to bottom left.

                  Cheaper than buying a saw if you are satisfied with your present one

                      Yes indeed,youve joined a nice group of people,all of us willing to help. There even hasnt really been much bullying with egos on here.If you ever need advice,someone here is sure to help you out. Yes,my method...put clear packing tape over the wood,it lubricates the blade,as well as makes pattern removal easier.thenm,with spray adhesive,stick a photocopied pattern to the tape. Drill the holes,and cut it out. Afterwards,peel off the pattern and tape,(if its hard to peel off,use a hairdryer to help loosen the tape),then sand it lightly,and finish! Your going to get so addicted to scrollsawing you are going to wonder how you lived so long without it!

                          another source.

                          Olson makes a replacement 3" blade for that saw along with the all the others like Sears etc. Scroll it carries them for $9.99 a dozen.

                          Glad I found them I just sent an old Dremel saw to my nephews.

                            3" Pin End SS Blades

                            I admit I am biased becuase I work there part time but Ace Hardware does carry the Olson blades as well. There is no way I would ever benifit from this post as each store is individually owned.

                            If your local Ace Hardware does not carry them they can order them. Or you can order them off of AceHardware.com and have them shipped to a local store free of charge.

                            Ace # 2034197
                            * 3" long; pinned ends

                            * Skip style teeth for wood; plastic and thin mild metals
                            * Hobby scroll saw blades for Dremel Motosaw; Sears Craftsman Hobby Scroll Saw; Delta 15" Hobby Scroll Saw and Emco Lux Hobby Saw

                            This appears to be the same thing but there are two choices....

                              It says blade, not blades. Is $3.99 for one blade or for a dozen. Looks like one in the enlarged picture. If for one , the price is terrible.
