  • 3 inch blades

    Does anyone know where to get 3 inch pinned blades?

    I have an old, old Dremel scroll saw that my dad left me when he died years ago. It had one blade in it still and I tried it out after it sitting idle for so long. It still works and has a disk sander attached.

    The thing is though it takes short blades and I don't know if they still make them. The guy at Woodcraft said he didn't think they were made anymore.

    Until just recently i had an "OLD" saw of the same make and model ...very underpowered and not really the best shape due to age and a lot of use....seemed like every time i used it it had less power...finally passed it on to my daugher to mak small christmas ornaments.the disk sander was great and also could be diamounted and an engraver/pen attachment could be installed in its place......neat unit but underpowered as far as i'm concerned.
    the blades are still sold at our local ace hardware......try "Mikes Scrolsawing.", bet he has them.

        Thanks; I'll give Sloans a look. I thought Mike only had 5 inchers. I'll check with him as well.

          Hi cpowell,
          I sell only the 130 mm blades or also called 5" blades.
          If you ever get a different saw, I would be glad to help you.

            Mike, I'm already a customer. A very satisfied customer I might add.
            I just wanted to see if my dads really old saw still cuts. Since it runs I assume that it cuts but I haven't tried it yet. I'll get it out today and take a better look at it. Maybe post a photo.

              Maybe cut a 5" blade to lenght and try it on that saw.

                ..the one i had ONLY took pinned blades....a different type of modified (pinless ) blade holder was not an option due to the way the upper and lower arms were designed...one of the three reasons i gave it to my daughter..aftewr posting my reply about the saw i called and talked to my daughter....she said she only used the saw 2 times in the past year and is NOT impressed with the power...really not into woodworking i guess.

                  Yes, this one seems to only take the pinned blades. There MIGHT have been some kind of adapter but it is long, long gone if there was. When I get out the camera today I'll take a photo and post it. It's old and dirty but it was daddys and now it's mine.

                      Thanks for the links and info guys. I haven't ordered yet as there is just so much to do that I run out of daylight before I'm finished. Scrolling, learning about the router, working with the new table saw. Lots to learn and you don't get better without practice.
                      When I stop I realize how tired I am. I'm having so much fun that I don't even know I'm tired.

                        by Rolf
                        I tend to be a bit scattered when it comes to projects, I get bored and move to something else mid stream. It seems to be getting worse with age,

                        Any way I decided to tune up both of my saws, the EX 16 and my Hawk G4-26. I thought I had the EX perfectly square to the table until I cut...

                        Great news. I know from personal experience getting the vaccine has been a great uplift to me. It gives a new hope that the worst is truly behind us. In the US we did not have a choice in most cases. You got whatever you got. My wife and I both had the Pfizer one and had minimal issues like: arm...
