Do you have the manual for the saw? IIRC, many of those needed 6” blades, which are fairly uncommon (5” is more or less the standard). What blades you need (width, tpi, etc…) will be determined by what you are trying to cut.

Yes, I think this one does need at least a 6” blade. I cut the ends off a coping saw blade and it works in it. I can access the instructions on one of their 15” saws online. It should be pretty much the same same for most things. I thought maybe I might buy a small pkg of blades with several different ‘sizes, teeth, style’ in it. Just don’t know much about those blades. I could and would cut coping saw blades to use in it if need be.
