  • 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?

              Ours are run by the state Ag Dept. They have very strict rules as to masks and distancing. The Ag Dept does come and visit to make sure rules are being followed. We stand behind the table and use the tailgate for packaging. I have people place their credit card in the reader on my phone and remove...

              Linda - Here is my gimmick for the Incra 1000SE on my SS CNS. I scratched a line 3/4-inch in from the blade end of the fence. I then use a ruler to set that line 1-inch from the side of a carbide tooth on the blade. Then I line the 1-inch mark on the fence ruler to the scratch line.

              It was a tough choice on the miter gauges---based on recommendations here. I researched the Kreg and the Incra. They were pretty much tied. I let fate decide it. Went into my nearest 2 hardwood stores. #1 sold Kreg, but they were out of stock and didn't know when an order would come in that...

              Nice puzzle. Go for the gusto---scroll it next time!! Several of the quality brands of blades make blades just for acrylics. With a sharp blade and the right speed it's all good.
