  • 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.

          Betty is the feed belt centered? Do you hear it when the drum is spinning or when just the feed belt is on?
          I have had the sanding belt stretch, they do that over time, and there was enough hanging out to just kiss the table.

          I got mine the other day. Also noticed a dearth of Christmas themed projects. I don't recall seeing much Christmas stuff in the Fall issue either. I look forward to new ornament ideas, but those were lacking this year.

          I do understand some of the constraints in publishing a magazine these...

          Well, this topic can present a lot of opinions and options. First, if you are seriously considering helical cutting heads, would you take the next step and upgrade to a stationary, floor model planer? Perhaps even a used one. I don't know how much space you have and what your shop power options are,...

          Our super max has been making a noise that sounds like paper caught but we can’t pinpoint anything. Cleaned what we could, Bruce used dry lubricant, which sounds like an oxymoron to me, and still makes the noise. Started quietly now is louder. Any suggestions before we call for warranty work? I’m...

          Virtual Wood Show
          by Don in Brooklin On
          Due to Covid-19 all events in Ontario have been cancelled including the Wood Show in Toronto. It was a great event but this year it is going to go virtual.

          They will have a number of seminars and the ability to tour vendor sites. Not sure how it all works. It will be FREE but you can pay...
