  • 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?

              He did therapy for 4 weeks then at home for another 2 to get his legs ready for the surgery. The therapist called today her first inhome appointment is Thursday. Hopefully the other knee will be within a few weeks. He has an amazing resolve so I expect him not to need the walker or cane in 2 weeks....

              I wish Bruce a speedy recovery. If his recovery is similar as that of a friend he will be up and around in no time at all. My friends is over weight and had both knees done 5 days apart. Physical therapy helpd alot.

              I had to replace the motor on my Hawk that we purchased new in 2002. I just called up Hawk & they had me send them my motor the power switch.
