    My son gave me his barely used Task Force 25-1951. I was sent a manual by Lowes (great customer service!). After cleaning the tool and buying new blades I tried to set it up. As I put the pinless blades in the holder and backing it all the way in I find that the blade itself is rubbing against the slot. I've applied all my logical skills (of which I have none) and can't think of any reason beyond the fact that the blade I'm putting in is wider than the old blade. I'm all set to try out the skill set presented in my new book "Scroll Saw Workbook" but I'm stymed.
    Also any suggestions re blades. Our local Lowes and Home Depot had nothing and my favorite lumberyard only had a few.

    Most of us get our blades online. They are higher quality and less expensive than in the local hardware stores. Here are two location to order from.
