    Have been working with hubbys saw, but he finally bought me my own late this winter, and he says he has created a monster, lol. Am always looking for patterns, easy ones just now, hope to get fancier as I get more practiced at all this. We use the spiral round blades, I can whip things out with them, I hate turning my wood all around, so love being able to go forewards, backwards and sideways with these blades!

          Greetings! I am new too... haven't even tried a spiral blade yet. Kind of scares me thinking about it. lol. Difference between flying a plane and a helicopter I'd think... I understand the aerodynamics of a plane... but a helicopter... no way. =)

            Welcome MammaCat!

            It's good to have another member here that likes spiral blades. Most of the other members of the club I belong too don't like them much. For me they help me to not push the wood sideways when using "regular" blades. Then again "whatever works for you".

            Steve Good has a site with LOTS of patterns suitable for beginners (or people that don't have several hundred hours to cut a grandfather clock.) Scrollsaw Workshop

            Have fun with your new hobby.

                Twenty years in electronics retail and here is a quick dirty way to tell the difference:
                a fast blow will only have the wire element. Slow blow almost always has some extra structure that will be left behind after the fuse blows.
                Secondly, there is a series of three letter engraved on one...

                They look like David Spielmann's Designs to me. I will check my library this evening, but I bet you already that they are from one of his pattern books.

                Thanks all - you folks do wonders for my ego with your comments and importantly fire me up to keep trying new things

                Scott - once this Covid situation has passed I'll definitely be heading up to NC. I'm tentatively thinking late spring/early summer next year. I am not sure just what pointers...

                I found this information on fuses in general.

                Blowing type. Fast-blow fuses will blow as soon as the current reaches the fuse's amperage rating, while slow-blow fuses are designed to tolerate a large number of startup surges and modest short-term overloads without blowing.
