  • 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.

            He puts biscuts between the long pieces, is that what you meant? He has stainless screws in the lips then puts the plugs on top of that. Scott, cutting one doesn’t take long. It’s the removing of the tiny drill hole, spraying each piece with distilled water, letting dry, sanding and sometimes flap...

            Like Bob said clamp a straight edge to the table and adjust it to compensate for the blade drift. There are some blades that have no or very little drift. Like the Olson PGT series it also seems to me that the Pegas MGT 3 or larger cut very straight....

            I now you do beautiful work but I have to say your attention to details on these baskets is impressive. soft smooth edges, no visible glue squeeze out. And of course the cutting boards are beautiful. I am guessing that Bruce cut a spline in the end of the board and then dowels. I have not seen that...

            You are one busy lady. About how long does it take to cut one?
