  • FD Sprial Blades

    I got to try Mike's FD new spiral blades last night. I used both the #3 and #5. Admittedly, I am no expert with spiral blades, but I found them very nice to use, especially the #3 blade. I did better at a lower speed, altho.

    You that do use spiral blades regularly should try these, I think you will find them better than the older style blades.

    Thanks for the samples, Mike.

    BTW I did add some in my last order.

    Mike sent me some samples of the spirals a while ago but I've had no chance to use them yet. Hopefully tomorrow. I'm starting to get anxious. It's been too long since I've made any sawdust.

      I am already a big fan of Mikes spiral blades -- But have you tried the two way cut yet -- they are super . I am not much on straight blades but Mike said I needed to learn to use them and I just finished a perfect leaf cross using the two way on 1 inch popular and I have no complaints what so ever. This solid wood is new to me since I usually use BB and I have fallen head over heals on the spirals for that...( pisssst) We are going to give Mike a big head if we talk behind his back so lets just yell out a hip hip horray he is a good friend to us scrollers ...... YEAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA for Mike ...and a hug too

        What are the two way cut?? Is that a new type of blade?

          Two way cut

          This is another name for crown tooth blades, The cut on the up and down stroke. Some scrollers like to use them and turn them over when they are dull, this way they get twice the life out of one blade.

          Two way cut does cut down on feathering of the lower edge of the wood. They are nowhere near as aggressive as skip tooth blades and this can give you better control. Best thing to do is to try them and see what you think.

                  Mike might be particular in who actually touches him
                  but, then again........

                    After a day of sanding cardholder strips for SIX hours which should have taken 2, Bruce is trying to square the table again. It didn’t hold square and he could only put one strip in at a time instead of 3 across. Any suggestions? This should not be this hard. I would expect this from a cheap sander...

                    At least yours showed up. Mine are still MIA. We’re moving my area around to do some work, so I’m sure they will show up. I feel the same way about parts. In 19 years I have spent approximately $600 in replacing worn out parts. Couldn’t be happier with my Hegner.

                    I lost a blade clamp and had to order more. It showed up on the floor about 6 months later, like magic.
                    Spare parts for anything can be expensive. Often low volume but it is sure nice to be able to buy parts for a 20 year old machine and not have to scrap it out or jury rig some repair.
