    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.

              Rolf when you say taper from right to left, do you mean thinner near the body and thicker at the end of cloud as on the wing ?
              And on each cloud touching the body ?

              I did that with Creative Woodworks. But when Bruce's group had their monthly meetings and swaps, somehow or other the ones I didn't buy ended up here! I keep all my holiday ones separate. But I also look at other patterns and think how I can reuse it. But sometimes that is just too much for my brain...

              Since I refuse to subscribe till they do something about the patterns in the pull out. They even made the DVD tough to print patterns.

              What I do is look at the index of the book on and if see something I might want to cut I go to Walmart and check out the book. If I like...

              Absolutely everyone here has made valid points. That's part of what I've liked about this group.....different view points and different ideas. And we respect the diversity. You people rock!

              I too miss Bob Duncan. I do not think anyone from FC has taken over that role at least on this forum. If they have I am not sure who. Like Betty, I owe a lot to FC and this forum. If it was not for them and this forum I would have probably turned my saw into a boat anchor years ago. Oh how I looked...
