  • 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.

              If you have a good saw, and can set the table accurately, you should be good to go. Give a holler if you need help. 😁

              Randy, I swapped out the clamps on the Jet for the Pegas clamps as soon as they became available. I found the Jet clamps just too fidgety for my taste.

              I'll talk about this specific "slice" of your question, with more detail that you probably want or need.

              Most Tilting head saws do come from the same Taiwan factory, except Excalibur. So what happened with Excalibur was . . . General got bought by a Chinese investor, some China/Taiwan...

              Did this thread get hacked? That is a very strange sidetrack from KyivWorkshop.

              It doesn’t matter whether the saw table tilts or the saw arm tilts. Either can be used for any project cut at an angle, and there’s a learning curve for each.

              I actually prefer the tilting table because the blade remains vertical. I find that at really steep angles, like 40 or 45 degrees,...
