  • Olson blade source?

    I have been starting to use Pegas blades but when I have something very detailed I like using a slower cutting blade like the Olson 2/0R 28TPI. I have been getting them forever from Sloans, unfortunately the are retiring. If any of you use Olson blades who do you use? And no I don't want an alternative or a discussion on a better or different blade.

      Wuss! I didn't think anyone would pay attention to that statement. Bob does Pegas have a 2/0 reverse with 28 TPI? I did not find it on any chart that I have.
      I have the Pegas 28TPI blade no reverse. It cuts nice but I want to reduce the bottom fuzzies.

        Hey Rofl - Rockler does sell Olsen blades. I only know that because a guy in our club using them. I never bought them because I found my favorite blade a long time ago..... and in my opinion it is a much better blade (just had to add that last part )

          Anytime I switch up my cutting media to something really thin, I feel your pain. Butter is hard to cut accurately. This may go against your grain . . . but you can take something hard against the blade for just a few strokes and dull it down. Also goes against my grain, but i've done this and it worked for me.

          Speaking of, there is a certain #72 HSS jobber bit I need to get from Sloans before they shut the doors. I'll probably buy them out and ask for their source.

                    Rolf,

                    Have you tried the Pegs Modified Geometry? I have been using them exclusively on all thickness Baltic Birch Plywood other than 1/16" with very few fuzees. In fact they have become my go to choice for most scroll work.

                      Why not just order them direct from Olsen? https://www.olsonsaw.net/shop/scroll...th-blades-5in/

                        the Pegas 2/0 reverse, has 15TPI cuts fast. Yes Bob I did find it and may even have a few. I am cutting a stack of 6 1.5 mm Finish birch and even then it cuts very fast so I go back to the Olson 28 TPI blade. This is about 4" tall.Moon boy bringing home the treetree (Small).JPG
