Scroll saw blades teeth are perfectly and equally set (right & left) which enables the blade to cut straight. If this setting is not properly mastered, the blade deviates. This is what happens with most of our competitors' saw blades. The user has to compensate for the deviation by holding the sawed item at a certain angle. This way of sawing is unnatural and the result cannot be compared to an item sawed with a Pegas® or Niqua® saw blade.
Let me take just a minute to talk about which scroll saw blades I use. There are so many choices of blades that it gets very confusing for new scrollers. I get emails about this subject every week.
Let me start out by talking about what I use. I would guess that 98% of everything I cut is cut with either a #3 or #5 scroll reverse blade. I have every style of blade sold but most are only there for specialty jobs.
Most of my patterns call for 1/4" to 3/4" wood. I almost never select a blade based on the thickness of the wood. If I am cutting 1" wood but the pattern needs a small #3 blade then that is what I use. I may not be able to cut as fast with that smaller blade but that is not my concern. My concern is getting a quality cut with sharp corners and accuracy.
If you are new then a small selection of blades is all you need to get started. A #3, #5, and a few #7's will get you well on your way. Honestly, it is possible that those are the only blades you will ever need.
If you start cutting portrait-style patterns then you can pick up some spiral blades. If you cut very thick and dense wood, plastic, metal, or other specialty material then you can research the best blades for those projects.
I have a whole selection of metal cutting scroll saw blades but I may only cut metal every year or two. If I were not writing this blog I probably would not keep any of the specialty blades on hand. I would just order them as needed.
So, when you look at all the choices of scroll saw blades don't be too concerned. Just buy a small selection of blades like the ones I mentioned above and start cutting. Over time you will get to know which blades are the most useful for the type of projects you cut.
