  • 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.

          Thanks for the info Denny. When I cut acrylic I always use a skip tooth blade at a slower speed. I just did not realize that the epoxy would cut the same way as acrylic so I followed the materials list in the article.

          OK folks, picture. I finally figured out how to upload a picture. Here is one each of my version of the oak and cherry boxes. Note the axle peg holding the top in place but allowing it to move.
