  • 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.

      You can get 3" blades here,

      and here,

      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.

        Quarter inch BB with Red Gum (Australian Eucalyptus) veneer. My first attempt at veneering and there are a couple spots where there was not quit enough glue so small pieces of the veneer came off....

        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.

        Update at 13 AprilIts been almost a month since my last post and my shop extension is progressing albeit slowly largely due to me nibbling at it on a regular basis rather than sticking with it and going full blast to get it finished.

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