    Hello! I am new here, obviously, and just wanted to say hi and introduce myself. I have only been scroll sawing for about two years, unfortunately the last year has been pretty dormant but I'm ready to get back to one of my favorite hobbies. Not sure how often I'll be posting due to two full time jobs (work and my 8 week old daughter) but I'm looking forward to learning new things and getting to know others with my same joy of the craft.

        Hi, Erin...what kind of saw do you have?
        I just ordered a new Excalibur 21....I've had a bandsaw for years, altho I haven't crafted in many years...I'm wanting to get back into it now.

        Hope to see some of your work.

          Hello Catlyn, I have a Dewalt 788. It's a bit dusty at the moment, my husband is a furniture maker, and it hasn't been used in a year. I'm ready to get back into it. I will post some pictures of one of my past projects. I unfortunately don't have very many as most have been given away as gifts and I wasn't forward thinking enough to take pictures.

            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.
