    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.

I prefer Flying Dutchmans for most things, but I know others who absolutely swear by other top brands, and almost everyone go thumbs down on generics after trying the name brands---and the price difference is next to nothing if you know where to buy.
