  • Need info about scrollsaw blades

    In SSWS they talk aboyt numbered blades. I need a quick lesson as to what size of blede represents a #, and what numbers do you recommend for
    various thicknesses and wood types. ::

  • #2
    Best way I have found to keep my size blades to the right job is to get the blade description/order form from olsons blades. They show a picture of what the blade looks like and what it is used for along with the type cut it has -The smaller the number the thinner the blade . but like i said get a copy of one of the suppliers that carry olsons and keep the chart handy.

      Sharon is right about the numbers of the blades.
      Here is the site you can find that chart: http://www.olsonsaw.com/scroll_chart.html You could also go to: http://www.mikesworkshop.com/ and click on "Selecting a Blade" and for more help click on "Q & A" for some tips that might help ypu.
      If you have more questions just email Mike and he is glad to help you.

        Here is another one that tells about the sizes of the various numbers as well as the size drill recommended for the various size numbers of blades.

        But I think one of the best sites to learn more about what size to use for what you are cutting is this one. It explains in detail about the various sizes and even gives suggested speeds for them.

        scrollsaws.com

        Scroll down on the left side to blades and then click on Blade Size Chart.

          I forgot to mention this site: http://www.saw-online.com/Tips/sdtips.htm
          Plenty of good information. It is from the "Scrollsaw Association of the World"

            3_M;
            In the link you posted to th SAW tips and tricks page I didn't see anything that was helpfull in the original question here but perhaps I missed it.

            But there were some nice tips there that will be helpfull to some scrollers when some other topics come up. Although I had seen that tips page before, it had slipped my memory. Thanks for posting that link. I had forgotten about it and I now have it bookmarked for future use when an appropriate topic comes up...

              You missed it alright.
              If you would have scrolled down on the page, you would have found this:

                Well now that is strange .
                You maybe posted a link to the wrong page that only had these tips as far as I could see. I couldn't find that pdf at the bottom of that page.I went back several times looking for that pdf .
                Perhaps these new glasses I got yesterday are not as good as they should be

                I didn't realize that I had to click on NEXT page at the bottom to find the pdf you were referring to. And even although I found information this time that does refer to the original topic I never did find that pdf that you just posted a link to. Is that one on yet another page somewhere in that site ? ?
                Thanks for pointing that out. I am not trying to be picky at all. It is just that I want to find out where my mistake is in not finding what you originally posted . If you can show me exactly where that pdf link is on the first one you posted I will delete my questionaire about it and accept it with my apologies as my mistake for over looking it.
                Had you posted the link to the page that the information was on

                http://www.saw-online.com/Tips/web.htm

                it would have saved me from overlooking the page that you intended to post in the first place. (I think)
                No problem . At least it is easier for anyone to find now that I have posted a link to a page that has some information that is in accordance with the original topic.

                  William,
                  If you look on the left side of the screen on the tips main page (on SAW's site), you'll see a selection entitle "blade selection." Clicking on that brings you to an article by Pat, it the article is Olson Blade Chart, click on that and you get there.

                    Thanks Kevin,

                    You just beat me to it. I will still post what I was planning anyway.
                    Thanks again, Kevin

                    Mike
                    http://www.saw-online.com/Tips/blade.htm Scoll down and find "Olson Blade Chart" and click on that.

                    I posted this before and that would bring you direct to the Olson blade Chart.
                    http://www.saw-online.com/Tips/Olson.pdf

                    If you use what you posted, you look at the left and all you have to do to find the bladed chart, click on "Blade Selection".

                      Hi Kevin;
                      Thanks for pointing that out.
                      3_M had said to scroll to the botttom of the page in the first tips link he posted. It wasn't there. No wonder I couldn't find it. Thanks for the heads up on finding Pat's page from the left side and then finding the pdf within that next page which corresponded with 3_M's link which took a one , two, three step to find.

                      Whew . . glad that's over I never was too good at wild goose chases to find something that could have been posted more direct and to the point.
                      OH Well. All's well that ends well and we now all know where that information was to be found and if nothing else, it made us more familiar with the vast amount of information available on the S.A.W. site. That S.A.W site has so much usefull information and an excellent scrollsawing forum with discussion boards as well.
                      http://www.saw-online.com/phpbb/
                      It would be nice to see more scrollers register into that site so that it would become more active than it is.
                      Thanks again for your help Kevin.
                      Best regards .

                        To prwimbush (I think I got that right) Dont mind the nit picking and and arguing above,any of those links will help you learn more about scrolling . and I dont know if the pissing match you see above was really necessary just to really prove anything, except someone either with to much time on his hands, or just trying to stir up a fuss. Thats my 2 cents. Dale (and no, theres no need to reply to my comments)

                          Dale--I agree with you about the urinalysis contest, but, as occurs sometimes on this forum, we rub each other the wrong way and a "tiff" results. I'm sorry, but I think it is fun to watch "grownups" have at it as long as (as BobD has said) it don't get personal. Some people give lousy directions and some people can't follow good directions even with a flashlight. I think they are both funny. Sorry, but I couldn't help commenting on your comments.
