  • SPIRAL BLADES

    JUST STARTED SCROLL SAWING ABOUT 2 WEEKS AGO. I BOUGHT A DREMEL. HAVE FINISHED A FEW SILHOUETTES AND A COUPLE OF PIECES OF FRETWORK. WANT TO DO SOME PORTRAITS AND BELIEVE THAT THE SPIRAL BLADE IS WHAT I SHOULD USE. I AM HAVING TROUBLE WITH THEM BREAKING AT THE CLAMP POINT. HAVE TRIED NOT TO OVER TIGHTEN BUT STILL HAVING THE PROBLEM. AM USING FLYING DUTCHMANS AND MIKE HAS TRIED TO HELP ME. I JUST BELIEVE A AM DOING SOMETHING REAL DUMB THATS CAUSING THE PROBLEM. ANY HELP GREATLY APPRECIATED.

    Re: SPIRAL BLADES

    Mike is the one to ask for help, thats for sure! What kind of machine are you using? Could it be something with the scrollsaw? I am not real sure about spiral blades because you cut all directions and sideways and that might cause the clamps to let up/twist or loosen?? just guessing, maybe someone else more qualified can help!

      Slow feed and don't force the wood. Let the blade dictate the speed. Mike is the one to answer questions and Flying Dutchmans are a quaility Blade. Maybe to thin of a blade for what you are cutting. Best wishes.

          New toys sometimes become tools we can use, and other times they simply are tools toward expanding our horizons and being there when an idea pops into our heads. Let us know what you try the Ortur on and how it does. I'm sincerely curious. Also....why did you choose Amazon vs the other vendors...

          It was a challenge that’s for sure. I didn’t start anything until I was all finished. It’s nice to have a clean area to work in! My biggest challenge was all those pieces of scrap wood that I just might need “someday.” They burned well in my son’s woodstove. And I did get through all the patterns....

          Wow - Betty, what do you charge. I have things to do and I'm in the process of cleaning my shop, just to have room to do it. My problem is that I get the work bench cleared and then start working on projects again. I really need to do the workbench last.

          I ordered and received the ORTUR Laser Master 2 from Amazon, the but haven't had a chance to even get it out of the box. Too much going
          on right now. I got the 20 watt version, which is supposed to be good for cutting, but I don't think I'll be doing much of that. There will be a learning curve...
