    If you want to try twisting the blades again, this works for me.

    Install the blade , using pliers grab at the top and the bottom at the same time, twist 90° and then tension.

    It takes alot of practice to ge the hang of spirals but once you do, your hooked. It took me two times of trying to get the hang of spirals the first time was a big fail I got so frustrated with them I wanted to throw the blades and saw across the room. I put the blades up and months later out of pure...

    I cut a 30" + door topper and for some cuts it did as Floyd suggested and put the blades in backwards. Make sure you practice with the blade in backwards. It is very different.

    How large is your saw. I cut 30" on my 226 Hawk saw. But you have to come at each cut from 2 angles because you can not spin it 360 degrees. Mirror is 30" wide...

    Just another possible solution, place the blade in backwards. - Floyd

    Practicing with a spiral blade is really your only choice - I'd agree with cutting at a slow speed and feed rate - couple other thoughts - maybe sandwich your 1/4 inch board so the blade has a bit more resistance if it is cutting too easily or aggressively - use a finer blade rather than a coarse blade...

    I have no idea how you would cut something that size with out using spiral blades. I'd say practice with spirals until you are comfortable with them, then go back to your project. I use spirals when needed. My two spirals, and the only one I use are the Flying Dutchman New Spiral blade size 3/0 and...

    Hello all, it has been a while, i have been trying to cut a 1/4" piece of MDF which is 30" long and about 28" wide. Any advice or suggestions as how to cut. I tried a spiral blade and they are just so difficult to cut with. A while back i read something about taking a regular blade...
