  • Blade safety (for your children)

    Yesterday I pick my 3 year old grandson up from daycare to watch him until his mom came to pick him up. Of course he wanted to go into my shop. Make a long story short it was a late night and I did not pick up the swept pile of sawdust. First place he went to after we opened the door and him saying "awesome!" was the pile. He put his hand in the pile to play, he picked out an old blade from my scroll saw! I am lucky that it did not cut him.
    At work we use a tube for old razor blades, so I decided to make one for used scroll saw blades.
    Take a piece of PVC pipe cut to your length. Put a cap on one side, other side use a male thread and cap ( so you can empty and reuse it). Drill a hole in the cap to slide the blades in.
    I hope this helps.

    I use an old empty bottle of water to put the old ones in. Contains quite a few and I can screw the cap back on in case it fall down.

        That certainly will be a challenge, Since the wood appears to be well preserved, it will interesting to identify the wood - cedar or locust ???

        They say great minds think alike. I wanted to order the ones you sent me to try. I’ll be placing an order over the week-end for the #3 double skip and others. Bruce’s free tickets to Dover this week-end for the races may just cost him for leaving me here by myself for 3 days! And I got them in 2...
