  • My last 2 for awhile.

    Guess what guys. I cut 2 horses at once. Is that called stack cutting?

    We'll see what the public thinks of them this evening.

    Chow.

    Whoops. Forgot to manage my attachments.

        The horse head is about 8 X 8 and Jesus is about 8 X 10.

          Looks good Mike! So what do you think of stack cutting now? I'll bet you had a smile on your face when you seen not one but two completed pieces in the same amount of time cutting the one! Did you have any problems?
          Best of luck tonight.........

              Thanks y'all. No problems with the stack cutting except that the blade sure cuts slower. They also dull a heck of a lot faster. But then, I was cutting
              1/2" instead of my usual 1/4". Twice the wood, twice the dulling. One nice aspect is that I didn't get hardly any fuzzies on the back of the top one.

                  All my portraits are 1/4" BB. I started the horse with #3 Pegas skip and switched to a #2 Olson reverse. I started Jesus with a #7 Olson reverse but switched to the #3 Pegas skip, now that I figured out how to saw with the Pegas. I just needed to increase the tension a little. That is 1 sharp blade.

                    For 1/4 thick cutting I would use a much smaller blade. You could get by with a smaller blade, it will cut easier, and the blade will cut cooler. You should be able to cut them projects out (stack cut 2 high) using one blade for the whole thing. Looks great though. Dale

                      Mike thanks for the impho. I have not tryed the pegas skip. how many teeth per inch are they. I use alot of the mach prestion ground tooth from olsen, they are agressive. but they are only like 13 teeth per inch. do they turn good. I find i have problems sometimes with some of the less teeth per inch. In some of the brands.maybe the tention is the answer? I like the less teeth per inch. they seem to cut through still ,and last longer.. but I have a problem turning. I turn, and the blade keeps going to the right. what am i doing rough. I cut with the burr to the line. i would like to here your methed. I am getting redy to cut some really hard stuff. stacked 1/4 inch red oak. so thats 1/2 inch. and sure dont wont my blade to wander off to the right. does this make sence to you. thanks your friend evie

                          Dale, I normally use #2 Olson reverse and thought I would try some #3 Pegas skip tooth. The only reason I tried the large #7 is because before I even got my scroll saw I bought a pack of blades on Ebay. The seller talked me into size 2, 5, 7 and 9. He also recommended size 11. Unfortunately this was before I found this awesome site. I thought the Jesus portrait, with not much for tight curves, would be a good way to use up one of my large blades. Otherwise, I have no idea what to do with the size 7's and 9's.

                          Evie, the Pegas #3 has 20 tpi. As far as my method goes, there is no method to my madness except to slow the blade and myself down for the tight cuts.

                          When I first got the Pegas blades I couldn't stay on the line on the tight curves worth a diddly. I emailed Ben, where I got the blades from, and he suggested tightening the tension. It seems to help a lot. For portrait work I don't see a real good reason for reverse tooth blades. If the backside is a little roughed up, big deal. A backer board will hide it anyway. The pattern stays in place much better with the skip tooth and the board doesn't jump as much. I think I will learn to like these.

                              The original pattern was 7 1/2 x 13 1/4.. The book has no mention of resizing on all but one page. My guess the magazine and the book side of fox has no one who scrolls.. the last books have shown that. enlarged I had to use a #1 blade for many cuts. If I had just copied the pattern in its silver...

                              I think he is talking about the size of the patterns lately and extra steps needed to copy and resize them. It took me an hour to copy the fish from the latest issue with all the folding, cutting to match, tape, repeat. If it had been letter or legal size, I could have copied and resize with less hassle....

                              IDK? I remember that Ben sold Pegas blades, but the label on this package just says "Ben's Blades, Ultra Thin Puzzle Blade". When Denny started selling Pegas blades I asked him and he told me Pegas doesn't sell a specific "puzzle" blade. The 2/0 might be their answer....

                              No, but I like that guess. It’s very useful and my niece wants one.
