I use a lot of scroll saw blades and I think those blades are # 5 #7 and #9 blades. Higher that number is, the thicker and stronger the blade is. Lower numbers will make tighter turns. I use precision ground blades like these and they are the best I have found and cost about forty cents per blade. Good for cutting thicker woods. 1/2” up to 2”,

Thanks Jim Finn
Do you know who makes these blades? So I can order more when I need. I’ve looked at various manufacturers but cannot find these numbers to match. Any thoughts?

Thanks Tomsteve
I think you’re right. I checked both FD and Pegas and they don’t appear to sell PGT Blades. So, the lot I got from my friend must be from Olson.

Have your say...
