  • bending blades

    I purchased a really nice old Delta single owner Model PM 1512 24" scroll saw. I keep bending blades and obviously not installing correct. Can some one help. Also I purchased this for my natarsia projects and need to use # 5 blade. Any suggestions.

    Which direction, and at what point are the blades bending? How much bend?

      You do not have enough tention and pushing too hard into the blade.
      The blade should make a nice high ping sound or should not move side ways more than 1/8". Have good speed and push vey slow into the blade, let the blade do the cutting they say. You need patience when scrolling.

          "It is so cute" - it is the first what I hear when I show this project. I haven’t done 3D patterns for a long time (about a year), it’s quite difficult and takes a long time. But I don’t regret the time I spent on this new pattern - Christmas deer, I think it turned out great. It is...

          I've been using the bags from Amazon and a heat gun my wife bought when she was a preschool teacher. Unless you are wrapping of small parts, you don't need a sealer. Just fold it over and hold it with a small piece of scotch tape on the back. After you shrink it it's sealed enough to keep everything...

          My process is a bit different. Since I am using heat shrink bags when you seal the open end you trap a lot of air in them. When you start to heat the bag to shrink it you create a large bubble. I continue to heat the bag until it does pop a hole. I have been doing this for years. The shrink wrap...

          None Linda. You need to find the right heat temp so it shrinks but doesn’t put a hole in the wrap but the tape doesn’t shrink or tear.

          What thickness of film seems to work the best for puzzles?
          The bags seem easier on the surface.
          But the film seems like it is more versatile on size variations.
