    Choosing the Right Blade for the Job

    Don, know what you mean. Most "modified Geometry" style blades are machined instead of stamped. Both sides of the blade are identical meaning they won't pull one direction or the other. Good choice.

    Being that I was right in the middle of helping brining that tech stuff to market, I worried a lot that it would work as advertised. Sometimes the salesmen would advertise a feature and then we would have to make it work.

  9. I think your choice of blade for a particular job really is a personal choice with prior knowledge of your cutting habits. There are times where I will change sizes or type of blade during the cutting of a piece ! ie: long straight or slight curved lines vs tight inside cuts. Blade choice also depends on the speed of your saw, the thickness of the wood, and the hardness of the wood. OK - I don't think there is a hard and fast rule. Your style of cutting will choose your blade size and type.

    Updating a Pricing List

    I guess I'm living and working in the wrong geographical area. My usual scrolling hourly rate is "minimum wage". Now if someone comes into the shop and want something done, it's $20 / hour for non-scrolling work. Yeh, I have been told I have a "Walmart" attitude when it comes to pricing. This is my hobby, folks,not a business. The bucks we get covers expenses, buys more wood and equipment AND sends us on vacations each year (where we are right now). That's my 2% of a dollar for this scrollsaw topic. Have a great day, brothers.
  11. Just sayin hi Fred, was perusing your profile, and just being nosy, cheers!

Who We Are

Operation Ward 57 Challenge Coin Display Project

We are a woodworking community with an emphasis on sharing and learning the skilled craft of woodworking and all of its related disciplines. Our community is open to everyone who wishes to join us. We support our American veterans and active duty, being a veteran is not a prerequisite to join. Join us now!


Air Force Command Center Plaque

Of course just like most online woodworking communities we are centralized in the arts, crafts, and trades that are woodworking. But, we have another focus in our Patriot Woodworker community, we are the only woodworking community that was founded on our care and concern for our disabled veterans.


Patriot Woodworker Volunteers

The Patriot Woodworkers are an all volunteer community, from the staff and hosts who run our online woodworking community to the members who frequent our forums, you'll find volunteers in all of us. We are not on a payroll, unless you consider the spiritual rewards gained from volunteering, as compensation.



One of the many projects we are working on is a wiki for our online community. A wiki is a great way for woodworkers and enthusiasts to share their knowledge to others, and to impart their knowledge for others to learn from, and utilize as well for their own benefit. We hope you'll consider being a wiki contributor.
