  • 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

    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.

        No doubt, the large patterns are a real challenge. Not many have a large size printer. Going out and finding a place to do large scans and prints is problematic with the virus and many of us are older.

        I wish they would not print the patterns with the grey. Pure black and white is easier...

        Just Wondering...

        Is the table size on the 22" hegner saw as on the 18" hegner saw?

        With the 22" inch one you get 4 more inches of depth of cut but do you also get a few more inches of table?

        I had to fool around with copying and taping a pattern again today. This wasn’t as bad as the fish, but still a pain. I use rapid resizer. Scan a pattern, put in size I want and it prints it out. If more than one page, it numbers each page at the top and I tape them together. Had the fish pattern...

        Rolf, I cover it with clear contact paper (comes off clean without leaving a residue) and draw a grid for the direction I want to cut (ie horizontal or diagonal) to keep the rows even. The rest is all freehand....
