  • carbon fiber

    hello to everyone!i'm an italian scrollsaw fan, first of all sorry for my rusty english.
    May be someone of you can help me.. I'm going to cut composite materials (carbon fiber 2 mm thick) with my hegner multicut 2s scroll saw, and i don't know which kind of blade to use..I never tried to work with this material, and just today I cut few minutes with metal cutting blades, but that was impossible to work with the same blade for 5 consecutive seconds!for my usual work (i'm a composite technician) I use diamond tools and I don't know if something like "diamond scrolls saw blade" exists somewhere..please help me::many

    Hi Higtam and welcome to the forum.

    Best bet is to e-mail Mike on
    Mike's Workshop English featuring: my life story, a cancer survivor, scrollsawing samples and tips, community service, list of favorite sites and Flying Dutchman fretsaw blades for sale.
    - if anyone knows he does.
    Experience is something you don't get until just after you need it.

        Thanks to all !😀 Your comment are very good and make sense!

        My piece is 8"X8" X 1/2" thick.

        Was it a good idea.....?...

        Great designe! I would have gone a bit further than Linda, Scott and Gladefade I would cut it into more pieces to make shaping easier.

        The never ending dilemma. I only get two magazines SSWWC and Wood carving Illustrated. Even if I don't make something in every issue there is usually something in each one that I have never tried and that will either challenge or inspire me. Yes I know that I do test cutting for them and they have occasionally...

        I would start by tracing your piece on a piece of 1/8" (3mm) material and then cut the back our such that it is a fraction smaller that your project. Then I would cut your piece into two pieces. I mean cut the angel from the cloud. I would then put the cloud on the 1.8" backer and then with...

        I understand supporting the magazine and agree. I just do not find many projects that fit my desires.

        I would like to see them do a poll with subscribers to find out what type projects people want to see....
