  • 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.

              by tgiro01
              With all these new tool stories, I was working on and old one. About 9 years ago, I built a router table. Then, before it was finished, I had to start using it. And I have used it over the years. A couple of months ago, While I was contemplating cleaning, I looked at the machine and decided to finish...

              I dropped my subscription long ago, so maybe I should not chime in, but I dropped it mostly due to the pattern pull out.

              I do not have a flat bed scanner, nor do I want one, so that is my issue.

              +1 on NC Scroller's suggestions. I would add that on appropriate patterns stop using the grey as it would make it easier to copy.

              It says a lot if Fox Publishing does not comment on an issue like this. Even if they said they are aware that people have concerns and are looking into it...
