    Could be the same problem with the Hegner. Nope just checked and the Hegner Quick Clamp has a swivel end and the Excalibur screws seem to fix a Hegner clamp. The standard Hegner clamp does not have a swivel end, but I could put an Ex screw in.......

    I use spirals almost exclusively. Never a problem with DeWalt or Excalibur. Got a Hawk and constantly broke blades. DeWalt (and probably Delta) and Excalibur both have the same size thumb screws for the clamps and which have swivel ends. The Hawk thumb screws do not have swivel ends and you cannot...

    I also use spirals, but only when the project calls for it. I used FD New Spiral #3/0 on my latest Dream Catcher with Butterfly. I used them on the feathers, double stack and cut like a breeze.

    I have done that also but it is a pain when using lots of them.

    Rolf I have had some success with "flattening" the ends of regular spirals. I lay the end on the anvil part of a vise and tap a few times with a small hammer....

    Thanks for the kind words Jay. The designers make us all look good when you think about it. Without their vision I would be lost.

    For the most part it all comes down to tension. I was over tensioning all of my 2/0 blades.
    One problem I have is that I changed my upper clamp on my Hawk...

    Bill, I believe you are correct on getting bad blades. I have used 3/0 Spirals a lot and do like them, but I have run into some that I had the same problems you describe. I am convinced, as you, it is bad blades. In my experience flat end spirals, which are not really flat, have made no difference...

    I'm looking forward to your review of spiral blades - not that I'm a wide-eyed, raving, poster-carrying advocate of spiral blades - but I have definitely come to believe that they do occupy a greater chunk of the scroll-sawing blade hierarchy than they are traditionally given.

    Your train...
