    Paul, allot of the time you will find using a different blade than what the pattern calls for will be just fine. You might find different blades will work good or even better for you. If you have what they call for, use it, but if you have something close to that size, try using that. In most cases, you will find it will still cut the wood. Different thickness of wood will also have you using different blades. The same goes for cutting soft wood (pine) or hard woods (Walnut) will mean using different blades. Now you know why we keep many different size blades on hand.

      Paul,
      An Olson # 2 is very close to a # 3 FD blade. FD does not make #'s 2 and 4 blades.

        Won't be a problem. There are no real hard & fast rules when it comes to blades. Generally speaking, most projects can readily be cut with a range of blade sizes. The difference between a #2 and a #3 is not enough to be an issue. Blades are very much a matter of personal preference. Experienced scrollers can differ on which type and size of blade they prefer for a given project, but you would never be able to tell the difference in the finished product. In the end, it's all about what you are comfortable using.

          I made a fretwork wheelbarrow using a #3 FD. Like others have said it doesn't matter that much what you use.

            I will agree with all of the above. If you look at the thickness of the blade you will probably find that they are identical. Difference is in the amount of teeth per inch.

                    That is the one store I physically get sick as soon as I walk in. The odor of rubber is overwhelming and I’m good for 3 minutes before I have to leave. Sure glad other stores aren’t like that. Hmmm maybe my bank balance would be higher if they were.

                    I wonder if their effort to offer better quality products may have something to do with it. Seems like they want to market themselves as something more than just a cheap tool supplier. Maybe reducing the number of things eligible for the big discount coupons is part of a campaign to change their image....

                    by Bill Wilson
                    I've owned both tilting table and tilting head saws. My current saw is an EX-21 (pre-Chinese made version) with the tilting head. I have to say that for beveled cuts, I much prefer the EX over my previous tilting table saws (Craftsman and Dewalt). I think a lot of it is the rack & pinion angle...

                    Just a random annoyance . . . . Anyone get frustrated by the Harbor Freight ads that say no exclusions, then you see the details and see "for items under $20", or worse yet, in super small print, "Can not be used for: Atlas, Bauer, Central Machinery, CoverPro, Hercules, Predator, compressors,...
