Hey All . . .

I’m getting into scroll sawing and looking for a place to get some decent blades. I can only get VERY limited blades locally. I have seen a couple of places on line that sell them . . . but I have discovered that there are MANY different styles and I have no idea on what to get.

Can anyone provide some advice and a site where to purchase some. I’m in Canada so Canadian sites would be preferred so as to avoid duties shipping complications, but USA sites are good to.

Tks :-)

Contact Mike at: http://www.mikesworkshop.com/blades.htmhttp://www.mikesworkshop.com/blades.htm
He sells Flying Dutchman blades, which are some of the best available. I am pretty sure he will ship to Canada as well. If youo call him or email he is very helpful and attentive.

The flying duchmen blades are good. I like Olsen blades, I don’t know about in Cananda but in the states it is the best blade that I can buy locally. We have a few canadian scrollers on this site, hopefully they can help with a source.

This one site that I found carries the following styles of blades. Pictures are shown, and I guess they are good for different purposes, but I’m not sure which I should start out with. All I have been using are the regular Tooth. Thoughts?

PRECISION SKIP (P/S)
DOUBLE TOOTH REV (DT/R)
DOUBLE TOOTH (DT/NR)
FULL REVERSE (F/R)
ULTRA FULL REVERSE (Ultra F/R)
REGULAR TOOTH (R/T) – what I have only used as they are the only ones available locally
SKIP TOOTH NON-REVERSE (SK/NR)
REGULAR HOOK TOOTH (RH/T)

They’re pretty reasonabally priced over time try ‘em all and get to see how each works. It’s fun finding out how they all work some are good for one thing and others for other things. I think the most fun blade I’ve tried was the spiral ones they cut in all directions but with a wide kerf. They make sanders but they don’t fit my saw, hope they fit my new old jig saw. They should be very interesting to use. BTW Olson scroll saw blades are made in Gremany and their sander blades/stripes are made in the USA

A phone call to Mike gave me some good advice and some free samples. I get my blades from him now.
