I just bought a scroll saw and am SO excited. I have not used a scroll saw yet and really have NO idea what I am doing. So here’s my first question: what is the difference between a pin blade and whatever the other kind is, and when do you use each of them??
I’ll be doing my first-ever project today (a test sample) and I’ll post my fabulous results, if I’m not too embarrassed by it :)

Welcome to Lumberjocks Debbie.
The pin blade has a little pin on each end for attaching the blade. The straight ended ones are used with saws that have a clamping device for holding the blade on.
If you’re interested in scroll sawing, you should check on this magazine. http://www.scrollsawer.com/freeissue.php

I’ll be looking into it, Dick. Thanks.
Do you use the blades at different times or for different cuts?

A lot depends on the thickness of the material. Also the blade width. Check out the scrollsaw forum, you may get some better answers.
