The problem that I have been having started when the plywood that I buy now has a hard core layer in the middle of the plywood. My scroll blades dull faster and I am getting burning marks . Can someone give me a few helpful tips…Thank you, Vinnie

You might talk to your supplier about the core being used. There are a few different core materials that are used. You probably were using a ply core material before getting a masonite core. You most likely will be able to get the standard ply core from your local supplier.
