  • presision ground blades?

    I've been living for the past 17 years on Sears Craftsman blades. I would like to get some feedback on Presision ground blades. I noticed that a tight left hand turns take a little concentration. Do PG's alieviate this.

        Danger! Danger! Blade disscussion. I have been using the PGT blades for a while the only draw back with them is the smallest blade is a 5. They have almost no burr and cut straight. You didn't say what you were cutting or how thick. All of the blade manufacturers have some excellent blades and we all have our favorites. You will see a dramatic difference between the PGT and the Craftsman blades.

          I recently switched to the Flying Dutchman blades and was very impressed. They last a long time and have a good selection of sizes. You can get free samples from www.mikesworkshop.com

            STANDARD ANSWER ALERT: I always tell people to get some samples from a variety of sources (listed in alphabetical order below)
            Flying Dutchman (www.mikesworkshop.com)
            Olson (www.olsonsaw.com)
            Pegas (www.bensscrollsaw.com)

            Each has blades that work for different people...I've got blades by all three and use them for different projects.

              Back in the late 90's I bought a Incra 2000 Miter gauge. Incredibly precise. The problem was that it only adjusted in one direction, It rarely gets used. It locks in to half degrees. More recently I bought a Kreg fence which has a pin that precisely locates the frequently used angles.
              That is...

              The crafters market here in Kerrville, TX is $25 per 10x10 spot per event. We sell 8 months out of the year, Jun/Jul is too hot, and Jan/Feb is too cold. No insurance requirement but we do have to show a sales tax permit and collect sales tax.

              Personally I would never sell in a venue that...

They run 4 “seasons”, spring 6 weeks, summer May - mid September, fall sept to Mid November, and holiday fare Mid November until end of year. Cost is $75 per season, per day as they are open Saturday and Sunday. If you are called...

              Ours are run by the state Ag Dept. They have very strict rules as to masks and distancing. The Ag Dept does come and visit to make sure rules are being followed. We stand behind the table and use the tailgate for packaging. I have people place their credit card in the reader on my phone and remove...

              Linda - Here is my gimmick for the Incra 1000SE on my SS CNS. I scratched a line 3/4-inch in from the blade end of the fence. I then use a ruler to set that line 1-inch from the side of a carbide tooth on the blade. Then I line the 1-inch mark on the fence ruler to the scratch line.

              Now,...
