  • cutting problems

    Hi when cutting 45mm oak , my scroll saw blade starts cutting at the top first , so it is cutting at a angle . Not sure what to do and need advice . I have been using a 12 flying dutchman saw blade and have tryed other saw blades . I have a Henger multicut 1 and it should cut up to 50 mm . Can anyone give me some good advice please.

    saw not blade

    I believe the situation you are describing is a problem with the saw not the blade what kind of saw do you use?

      As Jim said it is the saw not the blade.
      45mm is pretty thick. All saws except for the Eclipse have some front to back motion in the blade. The Hegner compared to other saws is fairly minimal when cutting "normal" thickness wood, but when you cut this thick it will tend to cut at the top and bottom edges first. If you put your wood up against the blade and look from the side, move the arm up and down manualy and you will see this motion clearly.

        Well, yesterday, I shot my 18 in the morning. The grands came over and I got one of em to try it out. I had to demonstrate so I got another 12 or so in. Last night I finished up with 90 for the day. Going to challenge myself to one hundred arrows a day for one hundred days. Made an excel spreadsheet...

        For me to write something like this with my woodburner, even with the fine ball tip pens, is just not possible for me. The variations in the wood grain really complicate things.
        The laser doesn't care about grain....

        A few weeks ago Elliott was looking around and saw a bow and arrows in the rafters in the basement. PopPop I didn’t know you had a bow and arrow. I don’t. It’s Mimi’s. Been a long time since I used it. Maybe I should get it out again.
