  • FD scroll saw blades

    Well I recieved some sample blades from Mike in the mail.
    I was at the fair all day yesterday and other than a two hour power outage, I was cutting from 10 am to 9 pm
    So 7 hours of cutting 3 layers of baltic birch ply and then lots of 3/8 figured maple.
    I put in a #3 blade in the morning and it is still cutting. Incredible!
    I tried a #5 on some 1 inch maple. What a dream!

    Great product and I recommend everyone at least try them.

    I agree that those blades are nice. I'm not getting that kind of length out of them. But I agree, they are good blades. When I ordered a bunch of different blades from him, there was only one style & size I didn't like, it wandered like the snake river. I don't recall which one that is but it was a small blade. I'm going to order more in a few weeks...this time by the Gross.

          Blade selection chart

          Mike, is there a blade selection chart similiar to Olson's fbut or FD Blades?

          Such charts are handy for those of us still working the learning curve.

            Have tried Mike's FD sample #5 blade and am getting the same results as Carl on baltic birch. These blades are truly amazing. I will be ordering blades shortly - Mike, can we mix & match various sizes when ordering by the gross?

              I couldn't resist (too long since any new toys) and ordered a blacklight flashlight from Amazon--same price as Harbor Freight. Should be here Tuesday--can't wait to see all the glue spots I've missed.

              If you google "Moradillo" you'll get more information than you'll ever need. It looks like it will work up beautifully.

              The first picture is Wenge, pronounced WHEN-ghay or WHEN-Gii. It is a very hard wood. It’s splintery and very hard to cut. When finished, it is almost black. I use it when I need a black wood for Intarsia. I do not know anything about the other wood.

              I have a new neighbor who did a lot of woodworking in the past but had to give it up because of allergies. He sold his shop equipment and wood stockpile when he moved here, however he kept a few pieces of fancy wood and showed them to me. The first one (First Photo) he had no idea what it was. It is...
