    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

He sold his shop equipment and wood stockpile when he moved here, however he kept a few pieces of fancy wood and showed them to me. The first one (First Photo) he had no idea what it was. It is...

    SLRA does a “spot” check. He’s lucky I’m keeping him around. It was free with a purchase at harbor freight. When people pick up a basket to examine, usually first time customers, they inspect everything for glue ups, drill holes, etc. of course, I don’t think half of them know what they are...

    Back in my days of collecting antique pottery, I used to carry a a small blacklight unit to check for repairs that were invisible to the naked eye. I never knew that it could detect glue spots. That's a lot neater than using mineral spirits, or waiting until a sealer coat of shellac reveals missed...
