  • Cutting Mother of Pearl

    Does anyone know why the scroll saw will only cut MOP extremely slowly, whereas the same blade using a hand saw cuts quickly and easily.(cutting two 2mm blanks together in a sandwich to produce small bookmatched detail for mandolin peg head)

    I have a fair understanding of wood and how tools accomplish their task... but what is Mother of Pearl (MOP)?
    It's never hot or cold in NH, it's always seasonal!

        The only other in your discription is speed and heat ,you must have a some thing other than what I call m.o.p.,may be man made ??? any way if the same blade cuts it by hand ,all I can see is speed and heat !
