    Charles Hand gave me information on Flying Dutchman blades called NIQUA They are the same as Flying Dutchman. http://www.sawbird.com/scroll_saw_blades.htm Sells them for a lot less than I found anywhere else.. they are out of Canada. Use they tool on the page to find out USA dollars. I called them as the site would not let me order 3 gross of the same blade to get the 10% off deal. Very nice to deal with. In November I got 3 gross #5 Ultra Reverse for 82.88 plus .82 foreign transaction fee including shipping.

    I like WTB, because they carry both Olson and FD. I use both brands and it's nice to have one stop shopping. I've used Sloan's before, for Olson blades. They are very good and nice people to deal with, but, as Rolf said, phone orders only.

    Someone please correct me if I'm wrong, but I think, the last time I ordered from WTB, I was able to get gross pricing, even when mixing brands. It doesn't specifically say that on their website, but seems to me I recall they corrected my order pricing because I had a gross of blades total, but not of either brand by itself.

    The other newbie mistake is one size does not fit all. Not all blades styles and sizes or even brands are best for everything. Different style blades are made because they are designed for a specific purpose and certain brands excel in some types and not others. They only way to really know is to try and see what works for you. .

    Wayne you make a good point. I tell our new club members that they should try different MFG's blades, keeping in mind to compare tooth counts not blade number. Then use the blades that work the best for them. Experience helps with those decisions.

    The biggest mistake new scrollers make is to use the blades too long. Control goes south very quickly when pushing hard on a dull blade.

    It is interesting that folks recommend a number of different sources for blades and it seems that all blades have their own fans. Tells me there are a lot of good sources out there and a lot of good blade brands.
    When braided lines started to become big in fishing, there were several brands and some of them got a bad rap and folks were very opinionated about good and bad brands. Today if you ask what line is the best you will get a lot of different answers but none of the brands get a bad rap.
    Guess the blade market has matured and all the bugs worked out and personal preference outweighs actual performance.

    I know that Mike,s Workshop is owned by WTB, but I still order from his site. I just received a shipment of mini drill bits.

    For those that might not be aware Mike's Workshop and Wooden Teddy Bear are now one and the same. Mike retired for health reasons in early 2015. He has since passed away. His passing was a sad day for the scroll saw world. The good news is that WTB seems to have maintained Mike's quick service model. WTB is the sole Flying Dutchman distributor for North America.

    They are the only blades I now use. My last batch was defective for the #5 MGT. I called, talked to Dave and within 2 days I had replacement blades. Can't beat the service.

    As far as which blades are best for you, that will be up to you over time and what you get comfortable with.
