  • 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.

          Thanks for the info Denny. When I cut acrylic I always use a skip tooth blade at a slower speed. I just did not realize that the epoxy would cut the same way as acrylic so I followed the materials list in the article.

          OK folks, picture. I finally figured out how to upload a picture. Here is one each of my version of the oak and cherry boxes. Note the axle peg holding the top in place but allowing it to move.
