    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?

  • #2

    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.

          What Carole said. The lips are 1 1/2”, holds the board to the counter and keeps the flour from going off the back. After gluing them to the board, he drilled stainless screws through the lip into the board and made plugs to fill the holes. The board is 3/4” thick. Since he only has 4 large Bessy...

          I remember Russel well. I think he went back to the days of Free4all.

          FYI: I just completed an index of the Charity Ornament book from SSV and Birchbank designed quite a few ornaments.

          Denny, you are correct, his name is Russell. While he may not have been here in years, he pops in at the Village forum from time to time. I just checked and he hasn’t been there since July. I would suggest that you send him a PM perhaps through the Village and see if you get a response.

          I think his name is Russel. I checked and he was last on the forum in 2014. I had a request for one of his patterns. Fortunately I still had a copy. Anyone heard from him?
