  • Cutting Coins

    I'm looking for information on scrolling coins, such as what blades would you use? I have seen this done in person, and the coins were being cut by hand, I guess using a jewelers saw. Anyone out there do this or tried it before?

        Cutting Coins

        Hi Bill,

        I have a post on this site about cutting coins. It will be on page 2 or three by now. I think it is cutting coins .51 cents worth or something like that. Check it out. There is a book by Dave Freeman called " Scrollsawing Coins, Glass, Metals & More. Mr. Freeman explains what blades to use, how to cut the coins and even gives instructions for making a coin holder for use to secure the coins while cutting. You can find this book at Woodcraft stores and most places that sell woodworking books. I purchased mine for $19.95 USA and it is worth every penney. Lots of good information in there for scrollers that want to use something besides wood. I have used a coin cuttin blade from Mike who sells the FD blades. I think it was the FD-RB 2/0 or No.1 .(Flying Dutchman Round Back) . Contact Mike and see what he recommends and he will send you some samples. Be sure and get the book by Dave Freeman and if I can be of help just give me an e-mail. You are going to enjoy the new hobby. Good luck.

          Hi James,

          Thanks for the info. I will for sure look into the book by Mr. Freeman, I know a jig to hold those coins would be a plus rather cutting by hand or with a scroll saw.

          I'm having a blast working with wood, but thought it would be interesting to give it a try with coins also.

          The site I listed prior to this post has a Texas coin like the one in your mentioned thread...sells for $25.00.

          Thanks again.

            don't put this one in the collection plate

            I know cutting coins with a scroll saw would be a challenge and lots of fun.
            I was browsing online one day and came upon this image.
            There were no details on how it was done.
