  • Hello from Duluth

    I have been an off and on wood worker ever since my dad bought his scroll saw(and hardly used it). I bought one for my self and set it up in my basement and have created many cool things with it. my workshop has grown to a drill press, and a jet mini lathe. Fun stuff maybe i will post some pics of my work later.

              my first intarsia project wa a chipmunk. turned out very well concidering my dad only had pinned blades. Next came the angel and the moon. the chipmunk is all 1 kind of wood stained to look different as is the angel. One tip I can give you is when you need only a little bit of stain for a project and have a Menards close by they have trial sizes packets of stain for 25 cents each.

                      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?

                      Have you tried to rough up the thumb screws tips? How old are the blade clamps? may be time to replaced them.
