  • Blade Vibration::

    Hi, to all you scrollers. I have not had much trouble with my DeWalt 788, but, I have encountered a vibration that is only in the blade as I am cutting. It is not constant & only seems to be when I use the # 0/2 spiral blade. It will cut fine & then start vibrating in a circular motion, which makes too wide of a cut. Like I said, it does not do it all the time. I replaced the blade with the FD # 1 spiral blade & it works fine. Has anyone had something like this happen to them ? I haven't been able to figure it out yet. Can't check it out while I am cutting, so don't have a clue what might be causing it. The tension is OK, & the blade seems to be tight in the holders. I am baffled by it & am using the # 1 blade for the time being. If I use the smaller blade, I can't do fine fret work that I like to do. I didn't mention that it works OK with flat blades also. Maybe it's just the batch of blades that I am using, not sure. Will have to order some more & try them to see if that might be it. Anyway, I got that off my chest, now I can finish my project. Thanks for listening.

    It was a tough choice on the miter gauges---based on recommendations here. I researched the Kreg and the Incra. They were pretty much tied. I let fate decide it. Went into my nearest 2 hardwood stores. #1 sold Kreg, but they were out of stock and didn't know when an order would come in that...

    Nice puzzle. Go for the gusto---scroll it next time!! Several of the quality brands of blades make blades just for acrylics. With a sharp blade and the right speed it's all good.

    Using Corel Draw a 10 inch round acrylic jigsaw puzzle was created. It was the cut on an Epilog Laser. Two passes were used to cut thru 1/4 acrylic so as not to melt the plastic. Only one person has put it together so far. It is about 475 pieces. But would really like to try and cut one by...

    As far as the Incra miter gauge, if you keep it 1/4 inch away you will be fine, but you will have to adjust it when doing angle cuts, it’s a great miter gauge, RJ...
