  • 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.

      Personally I prefer the Pegas ones over any other brand but you could order some of each and you will soon find out which ones work best for you.

        In preparation for a scrolling demonstration I decided to make up a piece that would show the different ways I've cut puzzles. It's 2 layers of 1/8" BB. The puzzles were cut out as tray puzzles and then glued back in so pieces wouldn't get lost as it was handled.

        The outside
        of the extension is almost finished apart...

        Quartz I only bought the air filter, That same model is sold by many distributors, I see Grizzly has it and several others. I was going to build one but this thing works great.
