  • Blade Problem

    I have never used a blade larger than a #5, but, my wife wanted me to cut a hanging flower pot holder out of 1 1/2" pine. So, I inserted a #12 blade, but, it would never hold in the clamp. (EX 21). Do I have a clamp issue or do I need to make adjustments? I could call Ray @ Seyco, but, I know he is stays busy, so I was hoping someone here could help me.

    Got something smaller? With a soft wood like pine, I don't think you need to go all the way to #12. Try a #7 or a #9.

      G'day Tony,
      A #7 should knock that over easily. I cut 45mm pine regularly and the biggest I go is #7. When I require tight turns etc even a #5 does the job. I usually use FD blades but for 5 and above I find the Olson PG range cuts quicker.

        Hi Toneman, if the blade isn't gripping in the clamp there may be some oil residue left from manufacture on the blades.

        Try roughing up both ends with a bit of sandpaper before you put it in.
        Experience is something you don't get until just after you need it.

          He did the Baltimore run in October and finished in a little over 10 minutes. Of course it’s a very hilly course here and flat in San Antonio. Very proud of all of them.
