Yup, you did a lot today and I’m in awe of how much you got done! I would not have done a third of what you did!

I guess Murphy left. I had no problems today. As a matter of fact I had a great day. I love it on those rare days when I look up and can’t believe myself just how much I’ve gotten done.

That is some clean looking scroll work. Very straight lines, very consistant.
What kind of scroll saw are you using, and which blades?
You sure did get a lot done.

Lee, I use a Delta SS250 scroll saw. This is what most consider an “entry level” saw. It is not a top of the line by no means. It is a 16” saw. I bought it on clearance for $69 after I completely wore out my first saw, a Ryobi. I liked it so much that I bought a second saw before the store run out of them just in case this one ever tore up. It has torn up, a couple of times. I work my saws in rotation now. I’ll keep one as a backup. If the saw I’m using tears up, I’ll bolt the backup to my scrolling table. Meanwhile, I’ll find parts to fix the other one so it can then be the backup.As for blades, that is a broad subject. Most times though, my blade of choice is Flying Dutchman #3 spiral blades. I order them by the gross from Mikes Workshop. On real large pieces, I sometimes move over to an old Craftsman saw I have that uses pinned blades. On it, I use Olson 14011 blades. I buy them locally because I have not found a bulk source for them that is much cheaper than what I can pick them up for here in town.
