  • Blade Question

    I know scroll saws are used to cut more than wood.
    I recently cut out some books that I printed up at work.
    I also read where Patrick Spielman cut STEAKS for the BBQ!
    I have heard of cutting glass on a scroll saw, does anyone know of a source of blades that would be suitable for cutting glass, and would the same blades work for cuting rock like shale or slate?

    Hi Carl

    You might like to look here, although they appear to be out of stock right now.

        Hi Carl,

        A friend of mine, did a lot of glass cutting. He told me that he got his from RBI: 800-487-2623. About $ 18.00 a piece he said.

          the down side is diamond blades need to be run with a lubricant of some type, water or special cutting oils, or the diamond coating wears off right away once it gets too hot. Been dreaming of how to make this work for a while since I've been bitten by the lapidary bug last year. Would love to work stone (the harder rocks other than something soft like soapstone) into my woodworking.

            Wetting the blade

            My thought for this was to go to a medical supply house...or a friendly nurse and get an IV drip. you could put the oil or water in the bag and set the drip rate.
            If you want something less medical, go to a pet shop and get aquarium air hose and a control valve. It shouldnt be too had to rig something up
            Catch the coolant in a can under the table and recycle it. You don't need a fancy pump. just trun off the saw and pour the can back in the top.

              My many years on this earth has taught me that the only 5 minutes job is writing a check to have someone else do the work. I also learned that Murphy was an optimist.

              The difference between 30° and 45° is amazing on my EX-21. The vibration at 45 is much greater. While having the flat table is great, I have to tilt the saw to the left to keep the upper clamp knob from beating my fingers to a pulp. I cut a lot of bowls-from-boards so I'm used to it. I probably wouldn't...

              Great idea and a nice job of puzzle making. There is one more option that I use to make puzzle. That is cutting along the shapes in the picture....

              Great job on a difficult pattern. When I want to add color to BB I usually stain the BB before cutting.
