  • Scroll Saw Blades

    Just got a Type 1 DW788 and while it came with 7 blades, I need some more blades. I will be getting FD blades, but not sure which ones I need. Is the assortment pack what I should get or maybe blades specific for my projects?

    My projects:
    1) Pinewood Derby Cars
    2) Various decorative pieces out of most likely 1/4 Baltic Birch plywood as I hear that is the go to wood for the job
    DeWalt DW788 Type 1

    Everyone will have a favorite style and size to offer. These are my recommendations. For your soap box derby the #5 poplar blade will be hard to beat. For the BB plywood I would be using mostly #5 Ultra reverse blades.

        I understand supporting the magazine and agree. I just do not find many projects that fit my desires.

        I would like to see them do a poll with subscribers to find out what type projects people want to see....

        First off how thick is the board you cut?
        When I want something to stand out I use backer-boards 1/8 thick to get the depth.
        that means you would have to cut the big cutting into pieces to put the spacer behind.
        for instance the cloud bottom right which his hand is on I would put maybe...

        I am stunned at the fact it wasn't rotted or termite destroyed. That must've been one blessed lady. Thank you for what you all are doing!

        Pretty boards. Our Walmart didn't have any when I went. Thank you for sharing though.

        Looking at the image, I would sand down the clouds a bit on the left (as you're looking at it)....to make it look like the clouds on the right are the closest to you. Then with the clouds to the left being less pronounced it will make it look more like he is sitting on them. Humorous design choice...
