    Try the "Superior Puzzle Blades" from Flying Dutchman. They don't specify a size per se, but should be around 0/2.

      I did try the flying dutchman puzzle blade but Iseem to brake them very easy

        I would think the superior puzzle blades would be your best option as they are designed exactly for what you are doing. Perhaps you are feeding the wood to the blade a bit aggresive, maybe causing your blade to flex and snap, or the blade flex enough to hit your saw table, that would certainly cause it to break. Where are you breaking the blades? If its in the bladeholder, try tuning up your blade holders, make sure theres no sharp edges in there.

              Scott, I was referring to her pms to Bill Wilson and Quartz. They posted her reply by pms instead of on here.
              Would be nice Quartz. I asked got Bob to put the issue next tp patterns and he said something about real estate. He found a way to do it and didn’t lose any real estate. Guess they don’t...

              I would be pleased if FC at least did a trial of printing A pattern on regular sized text and also providing a scale up factor. Their resistance to do anything if a real pain. It was a similar lack of action with the website that resulted in lost viewers.

              I think Kelly did that because I wrote a letter to the editor complaining about an article in the last addition. It was the article about staying connected online and it didn't mention the FC forum....

              The fastest I've ever seen one of those 3d deer cuts was by Rick Hutcheson. That man was super fast when we was working the shows.

              Here he is much more recently, and a bit slower:
