    Is there a way to crosscut a 3/4' to 1' Lucite rod into medalions?
    If so what kind of blade would I use?
    I have a Delta Scroll Saw.

    If your talking about cutting circular slices off the rod, a scroll saw is probably not the tool to use. If you have one a fine toothed miter saw/box is probably a better choice. If not a hacksaw should work also if your careful to keep it square. Either should give you uniform thicknesses (per slice) than a scroll saw.

      A modified Sue Mey pattern to fit 1" x 4" x 10" Hard Maple. Cut on the Pegas scroll saw using a Pegas #5 MGT blade. One side says "TEACH". Flip it over and the other side says "LEARN". After sanding, dipped in diluted Shellac, sanded again and another dipping. Comments...
