  • Hello I am new and need some help please

    Hello so glad there is this place for questions and help. I just purchased a Rockwell RK 7315 16" Scroll saw and it states it uses these blades:
    1 x 15 TPI and 1 x 18TPI
    Can someone tell me what the [1] stands for?
    Also where would be the best place I can I purchase blades online?

    Thank you so much for allowing me to use this to get help. May God bless you all Fancy

      I am not sure about blades

        I looked at the pic on amazon and it appears to take pinned blades. If it were my choice I'd cancel the order as soon as possible and get a saw designed for pinless blades. You will be sorry if you don't.

            Looking at the Pic of this saw it definitly takes pinned blades and I don't see any way for it to use pinless . The 1 X 15 tpi and 1 X 18 tpi blades are what is provided with the saw. Two blades sure does not make for much cutting.

            Look for a pinless blade machine otherwise you will be turned off the fun of scrolling just because you ended up with poor equipment.

              Unfortunately, nowhere in the description does it say if it takes pinned or plain end blades. Looking at the picture it looks like it takes only pinned end blades. This will limit you in many ways down the road.

                Fancy, Take Mikes advice and cancel the order. You could get this one http://www.amazon.com/Craftsman-Vari...517028&sr=1-12 from Amazon.com for $50 more.
                I bought a Craftsman 18 inch variable speed 5 or 6 years ago and am still using it. Some people on this board don't recommend Craftsman saws but in my experience they are good value for the money. Most of my cutting is in wood 1.5 to 2 inches thick and the Craftsman does a great job.
                Good luck

                  That saw looks like exactly like the Ryobi saw I used to have. It was able to use pinless blades but was very aggravating because they always slipped out when you tried to get it tension-ed properly. While the saw I had was able to use pinless blades and this looks identical I am not saying the saw you ordered will take pinless blades. For what it's worth I will say that I almost gave up scrolling early on because of that saw. Good luck and you've certainly found the right place to learn and share about scrolling.

                    fancy, I would have to aggree with canceling your order if you can. You will not enjoy scrolling if you can't cut the patterns. I mean that you would not be able to insert the pinned blade in a drilled hole. Most patterns call for small blade insertion. Hope you can achieve what you want with scrolling. Good Luck

                      stands for?

                        Well, What that says is 1 inch by 15 teeth per inch or 18 teeth per inch, but that has to be incorrect because there is no such thing a a one inch blade! 99.9% of blades sold are 5".

                          So did you take our advice and cancel this saw and order a different saw that takes pinless blades?

                            I believe that the 1 stands for one blade which means that you are getting two blades. One of them has 15 teeth per inch and the other has 18 teeth per inch.
                            If you are going to buy blades I suggest you contact Mike at Mikes Workshop Mike's Workshop English featuring: my life story, a cancer survivor, scrollsawing samples and tips, community service, list of favorite sites and Flying Dutchman fretsaw blades for sale.

                              Your probably right about the number of blades Don. In normal woodworking measures, It would suggest 1" x 15 or 18 tpi. They are defiantly pinned end blades and mike does not sell them.
                              Something else that does not make sense, I was looking at the specs on Amazon. It list the weight of the saw at 53 pounds and the shipping weight at 29.8 pounds! Is that crazy or am I missing something?

                                Sawstop instructions are some of the best I've ever worked with. Each part comes labeled with a letter to match instructions, hardware in color coded and labeled to match labels and colors in instructions. Full poster size instructions with pics in addition to manual instructions. Could only find one...

                                So glad they were supportive, it is a bit disappointing that they had to be. But like any tool manufacturer they have to out source many of the components like the motor. At least the motor is mounted externally for an easy change. How true was the blade to the miter slots etc.
                                I like the fact...

                                Steve posted it about 2 weeks ago. I just put out a small sampling of items to see what people are interested in. Seems to be everything! I did notice I had more credit charges than last year. But the ones who paid cash were the ones who paid $7 for a gallon of milk and $10 for a loaf of sourdough bread....

                                Way to go, Betty. Our farmers market does not allow craft sales.
