  • 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.
