    Flying Dutchman Penguin Silver Reverse #1 is what have used. very easy to control. and has reverse teeth. I have switched to Pegas blades.

    Several people have said the Pegas are much more aggressive.

    My go to blades where always Flying Dutchman Ultra Reverse. They just seemed...

    Everything that Scott and Rolf said is correct. I would suggest Pegas #1 Skip blade. it has 22.7 tpi. It is not reverse so there maybe more fuzzies on the bottom.

    I think I understand you issue a little better from your last post. Spiral blades have a purpose in scrolling and I do use them when I need to but I would not use one on that project. This is especially true for a beginner. Stick with a flat reverse tooth blade like the Pegas #1R. Rolf suggestion...

    I have not used that saw but if it has a large front to back blade motion spiral blades will be harder to control going sideways.
    With only a 5/16 thickness I would use a higher tooth count, the Pegas #1R only has 13.7 TPI. That is a fast cutting blade for smaller detailed work. I would use a...

    Thanks, guys.

    I have tried the Pegas round blade and it's too hard to control for a beginner like me. The blade I use most is the Pegas #1R MGT and it seems the best. But increasing the tension may be the solution to my problem. I'll have to give that a try.

    I think my...

    I have never worked with Pecan so I can't answer that question. As for blades, I suggest Pegas #1R MGT blades for thin wood like 5/15".

    Pecan is a pretty hard wood. It is ok for scrolling. I have used it before with no issues. With that pattern and 5/16 stock I would try a #1 Pegas MGT. You indicate you are having trouble making crisp lines. Are you having problems following the line. If so make sure to increase tension in the...

    I'm trying to make this cross project out of pecan. I have a piece of very nice pecan about 5/16" thick. I wonder which blade would be best for me. I have an assortment of Pegas blades. I have used Pegas blades to make this cross project out of red oak. But I am having trouble making the...
