    Scroll Saw Sanders.....

    Have any of you tried or use this product? I have been satisfied with my needle files but have seen these advertised in several catalogs and wonder how they perform and of course do any of you use them.

    I used them for a little while but gave up on them. The ends only fit through relatively big holes and so for only doing a small part of the job they are too much trouble. I can imagine a case where they migh be useful if you have a long run to do of something that only has bigger cutouts in it.

      Bill, you can make your own sanders by cutting a strip of emory cloth 1/2" by 5", fold it in half lengthwise and "presto" you have a 1/4" sanding strip. Just clamp it in your saw. Make them any width and grit you like. I very seldom use a sanding strip, if you use the right blade, it will cut as smooth as any sander. Mick

        Another thing to watch out for is that these manufactured sanding strips don't work with every saw. The Delta clambing system in particular can't hold anything quite so thick due to its geometry. So if you have a Delta, don't go there.

            Evie, don't know why an emory board wouldn't work. Never thought about using one. The grit on emory cloth would probably last longer.
            Have a happy, healthy new Year. Mick.

              He puts biscuts between the long pieces, is that what you meant? He has stainless screws in the lips then puts the plugs on top of that. Scott, cutting one doesn’t take long. It’s the removing of the tiny drill hole, spraying each piece with distilled water, letting dry, sanding and sometimes flap...

              Like Bob said clamp a straight edge to the table and adjust it to compensate for the blade drift. There are some blades that have no or very little drift. Like the Olson PGT series it also seems to me that the Pegas MGT 3 or larger cut very straight....

              I now you do beautiful work but I have to say your attention to details on these baskets is impressive. soft smooth edges, no visible glue squeeze out. And of course the cutting boards are beautiful. I am guessing that Bruce cut a spline in the end of the board and then dowels. I have not seen that...

              You are one busy lady. About how long does it take to cut one?
