  • Cutting guide for straight cut on a scroolsaw

    Does that guide exist, for cutting straight or with an angle. I have an excalibur saw.
    I am figuring doing one with wood.

    Thanks

    Clamp a straight edge to the table and give it a try. It does not work well as you will discover. The blade will wander.

        Like Bob said clamp a straight edge to the table and adjust it to compensate for the blade drift. There are some blades that have no or very little drift. Like the Olson PGT series it also seems to me that the Pegas MGT 3 or larger cut very straight.

            Cutting a straight line I get it started then plant my thumb at the side of the piece and use that to stabilize the cutting path, a bit like the pin you would use on a bandsaw when resawing old style.
