General Blade Use Notes

The blade is the single most important component of a scroll saw! Without using the right blade for the job, the results won't be worth anything. remember that one or two common blades will not be enough for a novice, much less the accomplished scroller.

All the carbon steel wire product produced in the U.S. today either comes from an open hearth or electric furnaces. The typical USA Acid Bessemer Process is what produces the superior quality grades of steel.
Virtually all scroll saw and similar blades are manufactured from a non-resulphurized high carbon steel.

  • Bend Test: i.e., the Reverse Tooth Fret saw blade must be able to revolve around a 360° pin without fracturing. then the blade must return to its relaxed state and remain bent.

 

The Right Blade for The Right Job

Contrary to numerous opinions, just like mine, it is the end result of what one achieves with the scroll saw that counts. I am repeatedly asked, "What blade should I use?" There are almost too many variables to consider in order to give a ready answer! The saw itself is not so important - whether it's an Excalibur, a Hegner, Delta, RBI Hawk, or an import. What is important is the blade tension, the feed rate, your sensitivity, the speed (SPM), and the type of material you're cutting. There's no "keeping up with the Joneses" attitude that can be applied here.

Special Blade And Cutting Hints

  • Blades should have a minimum of three teeth per material thickness

  • Cutting speeds may be increased using blades with larger teeth per inch and slower cutting speed

  • Finer (smoother) cuts may be achieved with blades with more teeth per inch and slower cutting speed

  • When cutting soft materials, use a blade with large teeth; hard materials are cut best with fine teeth.

  • If saw burns or melts material when cutting, either slow the cutting speed pr increase the blade size (blades with more teeth).

  • And for additional tips on burns, use 2" clear 3M packing tape, either envelop or simply place the tape over or under your pattern that you're about to cut. Believe me, you won't believe your eyes at the results! Use this method with all Hard and Exotic woods.
