If you email me at and give me your personal email, I will send you a blade chart from Olson which will help you decide which blade is best. You can always email me with a specific type/thickness of wood and what you will be cutting and I will help you choose, too! :)

I was going to suggest that you get in contact with Sheila Landry but it looks like she beat me to the punch. I’m pretty new to the scroll saw world myself. The best thing to do is to talk to people who do scroll work. Sheila was on of the first people I talked to when got my scroll saw.

Listen to Sheila Landry (scrollgirl). She pointed me to Olson and I’ve not been disappointed.
Steve Good is another scroller who knows everything there is about scrolling and equipment.
