  • 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.

            I too use hot glue around the edges. I typically size my blanks, so as to not have large waste areas, but there isn't anything about the hot glue that would prevent me from re-using them....

            Thank you Karl, I to have seen these baskets at goodwill. I guess the reason they are so cheep is because they are easy to make.

            Nice work Eugene.

            You know the sad part about our scroll saw work is where it ends up. I was just a Goodwill and saw a collapsible basket there with a price of only a few dollars.
