    Glen, welcome to the forum.

    There are a number of different sources for blades. Probably the 2 most popular brands are Flying Dutchman and Olson.

    Here's a link to a good source for Olson blades;
    sloan's woodshop

    Most folks around here swear by Flying Dutchman blades from Mike's Workshop.

    If you're just getting started, this is the right place to be to get questions answered and good advice. Feel free to post any and all of your questions.

    Good luck and have fun making sawdust.

      Go here: Mike's Workshop selling Flying Dutchman brand fret and scrollsaw blades

      Any blade on that site will work on your saw. A general good blade to start with is: the: FD-SR No. 5. I would also get the sampler pack which will let you try various blades and also includes the #5.

          As a fellow Canadian I can tell you that I always buy my blades from 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. and have been very happy. If you want to buy Olson blades from a Canadian supplier, you can try here . I buy my Bandsaw blades from this site but havenever tried the scroll saw blades. Enjoy your sawing.
