    Go to my web site and click on Blades For Sale and you will find all the information about the FD Blades.
    Olson blades are general thicker by numer as the FD blades. Like the Olson # 2 is close to the FD # 3

    I am just recently trying the FD blades. Had a problem with the samples he sent me - no biggy - I sent him an email and asked a question as to what I might have done wrong and he stated that if the second sample he sent me did the same thing to email him and he would send me two more of a different batch and see how they do. He was wonderful to work with - just have to find the time to get out there and try the second one - My problem with the blade was when I put it in the scroll saw and tightened the top screw, it broke in half. I put the correct end up but don't have any idea what might have happened. If you have any suggestions as to what might have gone wrong so I won't have it happen on the second blade I would really appreciate it! Thanks!

The Supperior Puzzle, the Jeweler & the Blade that Could are fantastic. They are like all the other FD blades, fantastic. I was amazed at how small the Jeweler was & how well it cut. I just used the Blade that Could(heavy duty) on 1 in. Oak & it was like cutting butter. Hope this will help anyone needing to know. Good Luck. Perk
    I recently got the starter pack from mike`s workshop and they arrived in good time in a nice pack that also contained a chart with the blades description and all relevent info you need.

    Hey, Pete, that's a nice cutting, but, I noticed the frame too. That's a nice way to put the frame together. I like to do things different & I might do that on some of my portraits. I tried getting frames from Good Will, & was more work finishing them, than making my own. That really looks great. Thanks for showing it.

    Great idea making a chart like this. It gives you a good idea about which type and size of blade to use.

    Please don't give up on smaller blades. I have already cut 1-1/2" oak with a #2 blade. It takes time and practice but there is little or no sanding and you project is really beautiful. I am a new member to this site so I hope I have done this right LOL.
