    Dom, Those were about a #2... just some blades I picked up at sears, which were listed by tooth count, not 'size'... I prefer Flying Dutchman blades, they do a cleaner job, but these were 'handy'.
    I bought some more down at woodcraft the other day, I prefer #2 or 2-0 for general use, a #5 for thicker stock. I like skip tooth and 'reverse' blades as a rule, these were 'regular' simple blades... Olson I believe.

    Dom,
    Flying Dutchman are 'the' blade as far as I'm concerned, but you have something else to make ornaments with yaknow... just chuck up some skinny pieces on the spinny thing, and make 'icicles' while practicing ogees, etc... I'm planning on some of that next 'weekend' (sun/monday) when I get home.

    Good job Ned! what next? I've got the plans for a wood clock but as I haven't got a power scroll saw I think that my perpendicularity at cutting by hand is not good enough for the pinions and mechanisms.
    Best regards,
    Toni

    Great job Ned. One of these days I need to invest in a good scroll saw and give it another go. We had an old B&D growing up that worked a lot like one of those vibrating weight loss machines. Lost my taste for doing scroll work quick.
