  • Cutting Magnetic Strips

    what blade would be best for cutting flexible magnetic strips??

  • #2
    I am not sure, my biggest concern would be the magnetic sawdust would stick to lots of metal parts in the saw.
    I would think, other than the sawdust problem, a thin regular blade, NO skiptooth would be best.

    Not sure how the magnetic strips would slide over the table, you may want to use an auxiliary wood table over the top of the saw

        Best cut easily with hand held side cutters.

            Some of the older books were that way too. It's unfortunate that the printers don't take into account what those pages are for! So sorry to hear of your disappointment. However, I will have to check out that book---I didn't even know there was a circular scroll saw designs book. Share some of...

            Many patters in it I like and I'm sure I will make several BUT Fox Chapel's printing of this book absolutely SUCKS. Most of the patterns are printed so near into the binding that it is impossible to either scan to .PDF or use a copy machine. I will have to cut out each pattern separately or cut off...

I have cut for the magazine and made a few buck that covers my costs,, But I owe that to Bob Duncan.. I think the new admins try but are not involved in this group like bob was.....
