    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.

            I’m too young yet don’t meet other guidelines. We are still 75 and over or health care workers I believe. My husband is in health care, so he has now gotten both of his shots.

            Our appt is next week, I think. We are going to another county as ours doesn’t have enough. So they say. First one was cancelled for 2/1 as they had to make sure they had enough for the 2nd shot. Applied the next day and got the same appointment they cancelled. Go figure.
