Make your scroll saw really perform! A rough guide to smooth cuts:The range of blades and the many different types may seem confusing at first sight. Here is our rough guide through this forest of blades. Avoid looking at the plethora of blade types and styles. Think about the work that you wish to undertake and from that select a small range of appropriate blades. With a little bit of trial and error, you will soon find out what works best and gain experience to narrow your choice for the next job. We have found it does not matter how much the machine cost’s, without a good quality suitable blade, the results will always be disappointing. Choosing a blade for scroll or fret work is always a thoughtful balance of three main factors. First the speed of cut - you need to have a good steady feed rate. Then how much finishing will be required; generally the faster the cut the rougher the finish, so something that will not be easy to finish will need a finer and hence slower cutting blade. The third factor is the intricacies of the design as thinner, finer blades allow access into tighter corners and turn in tighter radii.

for jeweller’s hand frames. The thinner your timber then the more teeth you need. As a rule of thumb, you should aim to have roughly four teeth in the work. More teeth and the gullets cannot clear the sawdust quickly enough, causing burning and running off line. Too coarse a blade could cause your work to jump around, a most undesirable effect. You can cut thick timber over 25mm successfully on a scroll saw. Again a little experience will show what works best for you and your machine.

The numbering system gives a guide to the thickness and width of the blade, 12 being the widest and thickest, down to 2/0 (which should be minus two) as the finest useful blade for a scroll saw machine. Blades go all the way down to 10/0

Scrolling or fretting? Generally, fret sawing means drilling a hole in the work, threading a blade through and making an internal cut-out. Scroll sawing takes in everything else, including jig sawing, just to confuse matters.

Spiral Scroll Saw Blades Pegas Reverse Skip Tooth Scroll Saw Blades These blades have the same basic tooth geometry as skip blades except that a limited number of reverse teeth have been added to the bottom of the blade.
