  • 3" blades

    Well this no-be is now a new-be. I picked up a craftsman 3" scroll saw at a pawnshop for $20. I have been looking for some thin blades to cut the letters I want and am having a hard time finding them. Bear woods has the super thin Pegas .010 x .068 with pin ends. I have been reading about Mike's Flying Dutchman blades and they appear to be the best by all acounts. Only problem is all are 5"

    Are the Ace hardware Pegas at 5/3.99 worth buying to try. I have seen much cheaper on the Bear Woods site 72/12.99 but would like to try my hnad now and don't want to wait for shipping.

    Any other suggestions for places to find 3"? I have looked everywhere on the net and I have no woodworking stores in town.

        The first thing you need to Check is that the upper arm is parallel to the table! Check your manual on how to set up your saw. From the specifications the max cut depth is 2.05 inches so you are at the saw limit. I like the Pegas MGT series. The MGt 5 (11.5 TPI) or the 7 (10.4 TPI)...

        I don't have much doubt that I asked these questions to Denny in an email back when I got my Pegas saw from him. But none of my saved emails were transferred over from the old computer to this new one.

        Since what I use mostly is 3/4-inch pine and 1/4 inch multiply which pegas blade would...

        Great work and patience needed to pull off these smaller toys. You did a fantastic job! I really like them.

        I'm curious to know what type of paints you use if you don't mind sharing the brand name.
