    If you are going to cut baltic birch ply, use a scroll reverse blade. Really intricate cuts, use a 2/0 Olson, or a #3 Flying Dutchman. Not so intricate, #5 Olson, or #5 FD. If you are getting the FD's, really consider the Ultra blades. They last a lot longer than the regular scroll reverse blades.

    Also, I just sent a PM to you.
