    Cut this one with Olson skip tooth #2 blades. Had the devil of a time controlling the path of the blades. Usually use 2/0. Don't know if this had anything to do with it. Went back to 2/0 and had no problems. Switched back and forth from my G4 to my Hawk 26 and no difference in control. Any one have any ideas?

    I use the Olson 2 and 2/0 all the time. With no problems.
    How thick is the wood? The #2 will cut faster than the 2/0
    Also you may need to increase the tension for the 2.
    You may also try a new blade, for the first time in three years of scrolling I pulled a brand new blade out of the bag and it had a serious twist in it. (no it wasn't a spiral)
    The 2 may also have a bit more of burr on it, so practice on some scrap.

          Wow - Betty, what do you charge. I have things to do and I'm in the process of cleaning my shop, just to have room to do it. My problem is that I get the work bench cleared and then start working on projects again. I really need to do the workbench last.

          I ordered and received the ORTUR Laser Master 2 from Amazon, the but haven't had a chance to even get it out of the box. Too much going
          on right now. I got the 20 watt version, which is supposed to be good for cutting, but I don't think I'll be doing much of that. There will be a learning curve...

          I think it would be wonderful if the publishers would consider some of the comments and see if they might make some modifications....
