  • could i use these blades

    just looking around the internet and i came upon some blades used on a veneers site, using pinless blades from a handheld piercing and fret saws.
    Personally i cant see why not, but you lot are the experts.
    many thanks

    ADMIN ACTION: I moved this thread to the "Tools and Blades" forum because it fit in better there.

    Hi Steve,
    It really depends on how long the blades are; Hand fretsaws are usually designed to use the same pinless blades a scroll saw uses, but there are some exceptions. Most standard scroll saw blades are somewhere around 5-inches long...so as long as they are close to that, you should be able to use them.

      sorry bob, should have thought about where to post first.
      Thanks for the reply, i will measure them. Just in case they are too long, can i cut them down??

        In most cases you can cut them down; but I'd try them in the saw first...you may be able to get away with using them as is. The only word of caution I have is that you may need to adjust the position of them in the blade holders to take advantage of any reverse teeth on the bottom...

          I have found some jewelers blades can be quite brittle and will snap easier than a wood blade, this might be due to the tempering I am not sure.
          I know I had to be extremely vigil when cutting with them.

            The original pattern was 7 1/2 x 13 1/4.. The book has no mention of resizing on all but one page. My guess the magazine and the book side of fox has no one who scrolls.. the last books have shown that. enlarged I had to use a #1 blade for many cuts. If I had just copied the pattern in its silver...

            I think he is talking about the size of the patterns lately and extra steps needed to copy and resize them. It took me an hour to copy the fish from the latest issue with all the folding, cutting to match, tape, repeat. If it had been letter or legal size, I could have copied and resize with less hassle....

            IDK? I remember that Ben sold Pegas blades, but the label on this package just says "Ben's Blades, Ultra Thin Puzzle Blade". When Denny started selling Pegas blades I asked him and he told me Pegas doesn't sell a specific "puzzle" blade. The 2/0 might be their answer....

            No, but I like that guess. It’s very useful and my niece wants one.
