  • Source of saw blades for Delta 40-560 saw?

    Can anyone help? I've looked through the internet and even visited a Delta Supply and Repair Rep, to no avail. Any Ideas??

    Blades are readily available in a wide variety of types, sizes, tooth configurations and manufacturers. Probably the two most popular are Flying Dutchman and Olson blades. Any standard scrollsaw blade will work in the Delta.

    Links to the blade suppliers can be found over in the left margin of this page, under Scroll Saw Resources. Most folks will tell you that Mike's Woodshop is the best place for the Flying Dutchman blades and Sloan's Woodshop is a good source for Olson blades. Call either one of them and you will talk to a real person who can give you first hand advice on their blades and their service is excellent.

        Hi Pete! Welcome to the forum! At Mike's workshop site, there is a chart to determine what type of blade works for the material you are cutting. Olson blades use a different numbering system, so, just google Olson scrollsaw blades. There you will find a chart for their blades. OR you can just ask questions right here. Whatever you do, avoid getting blades like Vermont American, or at Sears. Very poor quality, and you will get even more frustated learning to scroll!

          I never buy blades at the local stores. Most retailer sell them for 2X what you can get them on the internet. Like others mentioned I get get my blades from Mike. Try his sampler pack.

              There is a free software package by GLARY Utilities by glarysoft that our local computer club uses to clean junk off do hard drives and defrag. They recommend running it monthly. You should also check for malware which most antivirus software does not prevent.

              Actually, Jim, I'm delighted that making bowls with the scroll saw is still a viable part of the scroll saw repertoire.

              In truth, the scroll saw part involves only the creation of the blank and the cutting of the concentric rings. That's what distinguishes scroll saw segmentation (both...
