  • 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.

            That is beautiful.

            I am chaffing at the bit to get back to the scroll saw, Unfortunately the urban renewal project "Redoing the deck" has taken over all of my time.

            Excellent contrast not only in wood choices (LOVE the bocote), but also 90 degree corners on the bocote and radius corners on the maple. Very nice!
