  • Part 2 Why so many fuzzies with reverse tooth blade?

    Good evening everyone! I didn't have much time in the shop, but I did cut a few different woods with my #5 reverse penguin silver blade. I left the saw tilted at 20 degrees like it was for the aspen. I didn't get pictures of the blade coming up, but it seemed like it was coming all the way up, but I will check again on that.

    All pictures are of the bottom of the cut

    The first one is a little over 1/2" redwood

    This one is 1/2" willow

    The last one is almost 3/4" oak

    I know the first 2 are pretty fibrous woods. But the oak was a bit of a surprise. I would like to have tried some of my other blades ie ultra reverse, skip tooth reverse, just didn't have time. I did want to post my findings tonight and see if you thought these were normal. Thanks again for all your opinions!!

    Didn't get on part one, however, I use Flying Dutchman Ultra Reverse blades and have no problems with ANY fuzzies.

    No - I am not a salesman for Mike's blades.

      Cathy, I thought that reverse blades were supposed to prevent fuzzies on the bottom, not cause them!

        I use the PSR blades alot, and they do leave fuzzies. They cut down on the fuzzies greatly vs a blade with no reverse teeth, but there are always going to be some. Aspen is the worst wood I've worked with when it comes to leaving fuzzies on the back.

          Is that the top of the wood? Sure looks like the blade is in up side down if it is the top.

            Wood Dog, Its the bottom of the cut. Paladin, thanks for the reply, I'm glad to hear someone else gets the fuzzies with them. I do like the penguin silver blades and plan on still using them. Just wanted to make sure I didn't have a problem!

              Looking at your pictures I would say there is a problem. Fuzzies should be very minimal if you have the blade in right. I would highly recommend trying a different blade if they cut like that.

                I agree Cathy, there should not be that many fuzzies in your cuts. There will always be some. I used Flying Dutchman blades and have never had that many fuzzies on the cuts I have made. That many fuzzies in a many hole fret piece would really be a pain to sand out I would think.

                  I tried to call her but no answer.
                  She also got the FD-PS what has no reverse teeth. Wonder if she is using that instead of the PSR.

                    Interesting comments on the Aspen. I've been wondering if Aspen has "issues" because it looks like the bottom edge of the rings for my first bowl has missing (very small) chunks of wood. I'm using FD ultra reverse size 5, wood is 3/4" thick. I'm a newbie though and need to cut more Aspen before I can say for sure what's going on.

                      Hope to hear that it solved her problem.

                        At the time I thought "Ah, spit!" (or words like that) and just threw the blade in the garbage. It was the #5 size blade. I suspect it would cost more to have it done than the cost of a new blade. The owners manual is not very helpful, the wording is awkward, having been 'translated' into...

                        The brazing process doesn't look too bad. I have seen the welders built into the industrial bandsaws, so out of curiosity, I looked that up and that process is pretty cool to watch also, though trying that on something this small would probably light the whole thing up....

                        Jo, I did a bit of research on the web, and there are lots of videos of people silver soldering broken blades. In hindsight I remember I had made a jig eons ago to do just that, when I still had a small Craftsman bench top three wheeler....
