    Horizontal or Vertical?

    What determines whether you cut your pattern with the wood grain running horizontal or vertical? Is it a matter of what would look best, or is there a more technical reason? Thanks for all the good info I'm getting from this site.

    Tight Cuts

    Thanks folks for all the great advice. In fact, I'm going to try both methods, as they seem to be for different cuts. I sure am having a grand time learning this scroll saw thingee. Using lost of woods and miles of blades. Oh well, it all helps with the economy. Just doing...

    Making Turns

    Am I making tight turns correctly? In making tight turns, I begin rotating the work just a miniscule bit and may have to wait for the blade to catch up. Of course this takes a lot of time, and often results in uneven curves/cuts. I use both pin end and pinless blades.

    Oil and Poly

    I applied BLO to a project and want to apply poly for protection and gloss. Will there be a problem with the poly drying over the oil? I'm new to this art and really appreciate all the wonderful info and tips I'm receiving from you all. Keep your saws going and the information flowing.

  • Finishes

    Wow! You guys are way out front of me in the use of different finishes. I started as a carver, got a scroll saw about a month ago, and use both media in my projects. As to finishes, I apply a liberl amount of BLO (uncut) to the wood, wait about 15 minutes and wipe off excess...

    Round Blades

    In discussions of blades I have not seen anything on round blades. I have some, but yet to use them. Are they a cop out from using the more difficult flat blades? Appreciate your comments.

    More Spalted

    I should add about using spalted wood that the user should wear a mask to filter out the fungus and mold that makes up spalted wood. The oak I have is also yellow with mostly black lines. Wish I had pieces for larger scroll work.

    Spalted Wood

    I have several pieces of oak limbs about three inches in diameter that I believe to be spalted. I viewed photos of all sorts of spalted wood and what I have seems to be the same. Being oak it is hard to cut or carve. I am carving spoons from it and use the scroll for decorating the spoon handles....

    Pin Blades

    I recently took up scrolling, having been carving for about two years. The saw requires pin blades. I found pin blades at Lowes, made by Vermont
    Tools--18 TPI. That's all I can locate. I would appreciate knowing where I can purchase a variety of pin blades, or perhaps...

    Blade Speed

    What determines the best blade speed? Off hand, with very little experience, it seems that the higher the saw blade speed the neater the cut. And, I assume that the more teeth per inch, the faster I can run my saw? Am I anywhere near correct? Thanks for all the past help. Y'all are fantastic. ...
