  • 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.

      Hi Jim, I don't want to start a blade war but I live by the PGT's. Steve

        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.

              Thanks guys, I have a lot of HDU left over from my sign business in various thicknesses.
              HDU doesn't "fuse" or repair itself under heat or friction. Only acrylics and some PVC materials do that. Depending on what part of the world you are in, you would have to google HDU Distributors...

              My kids always call me since I am the one who probably did the stuff they are calling about.

              I know it's scary to get that call, but I'm glad to hear the charge exited where it did before it went any further.

              Probably hurts like hell and he has a copper taste in his mouth...

              Welcome to the forum from TN. As a Pegas Distributor, Pegas has the Super Skip blades which works perfectly with acrylics at a reduced speed.

              Welcome to the group. I look forward to seeing more of your work. You will probably need to slow down you scroll saw when cutting the urethane on the scroll saw. If the blade gets to hot it will fuse back together.
              I have used the house trim board material which I think is PVC. Where do you purchase...

              thanks for the kind words - I'm not really a scroller "enthusiast", per se. I like to make dimensional signs and have always used the band saw, routers, or Roto-Zip to cut the elements out then do some handcarving to perk them up a bit. I'll put some of my projects in my folder later on....
