  • Blade Selections and where to get them.

    Hello Everyone,
    I am trying to find out what kind of blade would be recommended for cutting 1/8" inch Aluminum. Also where can I get them. I am new to Scrolling and have no clue where to get blades. I have looked locally without luck. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Regards,
    Dennis

    Many of us use Flying Dutchman Blades. Mike's Workshop is a major blade dealer. Mike's Workshop selling Flying Dutchman brand fret and scrollsaw blades


    They have a blade called the "Aluminum Cutter" which should work. When you call to order you will talk to Mike. Tell him what you plan to do and he will help you with your selections.

      Blades are readily available in a wide variety of types, sizes, tooth configurations and manufacturers. Probably the two most popular are Flying Dutchman and Olson blades.

      Links to the blade suppliers can be found over in the left margin of this page, under Scroll Saw Resources > Retailers. Most folks will tell you that Mike's Workshop is the best place for the Flying Dutchman blades and Sloan's Woodshop is a good source for Olson blades. Call either one of them and you will talk to a real person who can give you first hand advice on their blades and they both offer great customer service.
      Here are links to both sites mentioned.

            What thickness of film seems to work the best for puzzles?
            The bags seem easier on the surface.
            But the film seems like it is more versatile on size variations.

            Regulations are 150 square feet, this will be 144 square feet so we are good. He’s making it that size Since the sheets are 4’ wide. And the Shelves need to be 4” above my head!! It will be very specific.

            As a framer, we have a shrinker wrapper at ArtCrafters. Very simple. Film on a roller, sealer attached, just roll off enough film, seal the film, insert object, seal other end and shrink with a heat gum. We also use Uline as a source. Not sure where our unit can from as it was with the shop when...

            I would make the shed 1" less than the size permits are required for. THERE IS NO SUCH THING AS TOO MUCH SPACE....

            I shrink wrap all my puzzles. It is the best method I have found. I do not use a cardboard backer as some do. I use shrink wrap bags that I get from Amazon or Ebay. 8" x 12" will fit 95% of the puzzles I make.

            To use the bags you will need a sealer. I have one very similar...
