  • Scrollsawing on Cherry

    I am scrollsawing on approx. 5/8' cherry and am having trouble with the edges burning. I am using #5 Olson reverse tooth blade. Would a faster, or slower speed help? Or a different size blade? Thanks for help.

    Hi.I use a #7 reverse tooth blade when I scroll cherry.I usually use a medium speed,but most scrollers have advised me to start high and slowlly decrease the speed until the wood stops smoking.{Try it on unpatterned section for best results}Hope I have been of some help.Good luck

      I use the precision ground blades and that seems to help. But, as previously stated the right speed is the critical part. One thing that might work is lubricating the blade with some of that blade lube. Haven't tried that yet. Butif you get the speed right with an agressive blade, you'll be o.k. anyway (probably).

          Use clear PACKAGING tape (like from 3M), along with adjusting your speed. Should work with any appropriately-sized blade.

            Dan, your questions are a little tough to answer without knowing a little more about this puzzle you're cutting. That said, here are my thoughts:
            • First of all, it would be helpful to know the overall size of this puzzle and how many pieces you're thinking of cutting it into. 1/2" BB is pretty

            Hey Denny---I shot you an email with a few questions. I might just have to dip my toe into the world of Pegas blades vs FD. At least to try! Open minded explorations. Thank you ! Linda
