    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.

            Its a marathon not a dance. My 14 year old grandson ran a 8:50 mile in the 10k and finished 150 out of 1550 runners! My 12 year old granddaughter ran a 11:16 mile and came in 661 out of 1600 runners. Beat her mother by 100th of a second! I’m sure Sarah let her cross the line first. Tomorrow is the...

            I must apologize to everyone on the list. I'm afraid my ornaments will be late. Thursday afternoon, Connie got checked into the hospital with congestive heart failure. Between that and her alzheimers, it has been an interesting couple of days. Once she is released from the hospital, she will go to an...

            These items, except the Christmas sign, are for 2 orders. Had a tough time this week, that brick wall kept getting in my way! Other than the market, I’m off until Monday! I decided to raise the price of the Christmas sign to $40. Tomorrow will be a heat wave - 45 at 6am! Mostly sunny. We’ll see...
