  • blade tension

    I’m relatively new at scrollsawing and I have a question. I use Mike’s Flying Dutchman blades (I really do think they are the very best) and I was wandering if the tension on the blade should be left tight while not using the saw for a few days? Or should I take the tension off the blade? I usually take the tension off. :-/ ???

    Don't know if it's right or wrong, but I always release the tension on both my scroll saw and band saw. Have been doing it for years and haven't had a problem. Hope it stays that way.

        Ditto, ditto and yes, it's important! Not only does it keep you saw in good shape, the 'wrong' person can't 'accidently' turn on the saw and have it ready to cut.

          Thanks, I'll keep on leaving the tension off.

            That certainly will be a challenge, Since the wood appears to be well preserved, it will interesting to identify the wood - cedar or locust ???

            Betty, send me an email of what you want to order rather than the website. Better pricing on repackaged. Email at [email protected]...

            They say great minds think alike. I wanted to order the ones you sent me to try. I’ll be placing an order over the week-end for the #3 double skip and others. Bruce’s free tickets to Dover this week-end for the races may just cost him for leaving me here by myself for 3 days! And I got them in 2...
