    I've tried Spiral Blades a few time and never could get the hang of it. I use straight blades for all my intricate work....

    Just some specs on blades. The Flying Dutchman (FD) smallest diameter spirals is.030 "
    The FD puzzle blades the smallest is .009" and the next size up is .013". If you are cutting kids puzzles it is not so critical but if you are cutting regular thinner puzzles the smaller blades...

    I agree with Betty. Different blades for different projects/purposes. Puzzles and Intarsia won't work with a spiral blade. for both you need a vert think kerf and you need smooth accurate cuts.

    Are you using a spiral blade? Try switching to a reverse #5 or #7 blade for puzzles. I don’t use spiral blades so I’m not sure how they would do on puzzles. Don’t forget pictures of your work. We like pictures. And welcome!!...

    Hi my name is Irene and I'm a spiral blade user. I have been scrolling for a year and have made some intricate pieces. Truth be known that if I hadn't found the spiral blade I would have quit scrolling before I even started. Problem is now I want to try cutting puzzles and intarsia, (I cut a puzzle...

    I did indeed have the blade in upside down. I was using some Bosch blades that I picked up from Lowes.
    On Friday I got some Olsen blades in the mail. I hadn't ever seen any blades this thin. It was a bit of a struggle seeing the teeth, but I was able to feel the top and bottom of the blade...

    I use a cheap, hand-held magnifier if I'm not at sure which end is up. Works every time!...

    On Olson and other brand blades you can see the gap between the teeth. feet is the easiest but laying the blade on a piece of white paper makes it easier to see. The flying dutchman blade direction is not easy to see or feel, but like Sandy said the top is marked....

    My hegner has a blade holder holder on the side showing direction on teeth to be inserted into the holder. I still put them in upside down sometimes. Scott’s way is the easiest. The long side of the blade is the down cut. The shortest side is the up cut....
