    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....

    Not sure about what size blade you are using or how good your eye sight. Though I well into my 60's and have only fair eye sight I can hold my blades to the light and see the teeth on most blades. Scroll saw blades point down. On a tradition reverse tooth blade you will find 5-6 teeth pointing in...

    That is always a problem with reverse tooth blades. Rub your finger alone the blade teeth. One way will have more "drag'. The more "drag end up. I like Flying Dutchman Ultra Reverse blades. There is a little ripple on the end to go up.

    Which end is up?

    I'm brand new to scroll sawing and whenever I try to do anything I have problems with the wood bouncing around. I'm applying pressure, but it still happens. I read that I could have the blade upside down. If it's a reverse tooth blade, how do you know which is the top end of the blade?...

    I have been smacked a few times, but now I have the fastest left arm on the east coast when it needs to be pulled back.
