  • Which is the Best Blade for MDF

    Hi all and Happy Holidays: In your humble opinion, which scroll saw blade is the best for cutting 1/2 inch MDF? I bought a sheet yesterday and plan on cutting out puzzles. I know that Mike sells puzzle blades and I have some but are they OK to cut MDF and at what speed?

    I've cut 3/4" and used a # 5 reverse tooth flying Dutchman blade for word art ........

      Thanks Marshall for your input. I have cut oak and poplar 3/4 inch using the same blade and it worked toot-sweet. Out of all the blades I have used so far, the #5 is my favorite. I just bought a bunch of #3 PS from Mike and so far, I have found that they tend to run to the right more than the #5's do, so I went back to #5. I will give the #5 a tryout with the MDF this weekend.

        Being a diet controlled type 2 diabetic, I check my glucose. Checked before my shot on Tuesday it was fine. Checked on Wednesday after a morning walk expecting to see less than 100 and about fainted when it read 158. Every check has been 150 or more since then. Started reading and yes, the shots can...

        Not yet Jim. The corners of the baskets to appear to be drawn by hand or just a bad copy. The price might go up. Thanks Linda. For some reason I really like doing layered baskets. And my customers like buying them. Bruce read a blacklight shows glue spots. Guess what he bought me from harbor freight...
