  • 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).

        I just saw a tip on that somewhere, put clear tape over the cut lines, supposed to lube the blade or something, but they said it would stop the burning...simple enough solution to try...

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

            I often resize just to fit the size of the wood I have on hand. I agree this is a no win situation because of the various software, hardware differences plus the skill level of us, the end users. Even providing the patterns in a digitized format will no fix this because of the reasons I already mentioned....

            John your original post is a valid question. It is a simple thing to put in the original scale assuming that it was on the original drawing. As a minimum the size of the material required can be stated, although that has been a confusion for folks that have built the clock projects. I field a lot of...

            Maybe nothing has changed ? But is there anything that can be done to make it easier. The very large projects are difficult to copy over several pages and put together properly. I believe in making improvements and not preserving the status quo.

            I enjoy the challenge of cutting a project...

            This is not a problem with the magazine for my issue.. It is a problem with the book having resized the drawings without giving the actual size.

            I do again apologize for my post.. I cannot use the right words to explain it.. so maybe someone should just remove the post....

            Reading these replies, I am still trying to figure out what the problem really is. I haven't noticed changes in how they publish recently and I don't think I ever had trouble making copies of of the patterns I want to cut.

            How did you copy the patterns 10 years ago? What has changed?...
