    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.

          SLRA does a “spot” check. He’s lucky I’m keeping him around. It was free with a purchase at harbor freight. When people pick up a basket to examine, usually first time customers, they inspect everything for glue ups, drill holes, etc. of course, I don’t think half of them know what they are...

          Back in my days of collecting antique pottery, I used to carry a a small blacklight unit to check for repairs that were invisible to the naked eye. I never knew that it could detect glue spots. That's a lot neater than using mineral spirits, or waiting until a sealer coat of shellac reveals missed...

          Being a diet controlled type 2 diabetic, I check my glucose. Checked before my shot on Tuesday it was fine. Checked on Wednesday after a morning walk expecting to see less than 100 and about fainted when it read 158. Every check has been 150 or more since then. Started reading and yes, the shots can...
