  • what blades

    As a new comer to scroll saws i hope that you chaps don't find my questions to boring, but living in Bournemouth, Great Briton i can not seem to find any good clear information on my new pastime. So here we go with the first of some really basic questions. I have been asked if i could make some puzzles for some young children and i dont know what are the best blades to get.
    Thanks Kingsley.

    Hi kingsly

    Best blades, good prices, cheap p&p.. sometimes even quicker delivery than if posted in the UK.

    Mike's Workshop English featuring: my life story, a cancer survivor, scrollsawing samples and tips, community service, list of favorite sites and Flying Dutchman fretsaw blades for sale.

        Whatever way you decide to do if you are happy and your brother in law is happy it was a good idea. If you really want to be brave use it as a learning experience. Make several of them using different suggestions and see the difference....

        Well, unfortunately, I have also decided to let my subscription lapse. I've been debating it for the past couple years. It isn't so much the money, but it's more the disappointment when yet another issue has so little in it that really appeals to me. The final straw was this past Fall/Winter edition...

        Thanks to all !😀 Your comment are very good and make sense!

        I though when I cutted the piece to do it in 1 piece or 4/5 , but after a while I decided to do it in one piece and carved it to have a 3D aspect.
        Was it a good idea.....?...

Taper the clouds from right to left, taper the wings so that they are lower where they attach to the body. Taper the neck so that it looks like it is going into the...

        The never ending dilemma. I only get two magazines SSWWC and Wood carving Illustrated. Even if I don't make something in every issue there is usually something in each one that I have never tried and that will either challenge or inspire me. Yes I know that I do test cutting for them and they have occasionally...
