Below are some of the most popular blades for the scroll saw machines.
🔖Standard: The standard scroll saw blades are specifically designed to work on both wood and metal. The wood blade is cranked in such a way as to efficiently mop up the ensuing sawdust from the woodworking tasks. The metal standard blade for metal works is more densely “teethed” so they grind the tough surface better.
🔖Ultra: Ultra is a new variant of reverse scroll saw blade. It is definitely an improved reverse blade but without the messy dust deposition. It has the ability to gather the sawdust well, facilitate faster progress and a clearer view path.
🔖Reverse Tooth: The reverse skip tooth scroll saw blade is a blade with inverted or reversed teething. This configuration minimizes the wood splintering when being manipulated. However, it has the effect of creating a dusty work surface and an unclear line of work. The operators are forced to work slowly and clear his view path every small interval. Another demerit of this blade is the fact the woodworking process erodes the blade tooth quickly leading to a short life span of the blade.
🔖Diamond: Diamond scroll saw blade is alternatively referred to as precision blades. This is because of their ability to make a precise incision into any object they are intended to manipulate. It is more like a double tooth producing finer ground in its wake. This blade is only for professional woodworkers with long experience due to extreme sharpness and accuracy.
🔖Metal Cutting: Metal cutting scroll saw blades is another variation of the standard blade. However, it has sharp more densely packed teeth to grind the metal surfaces accurately and deeply in every stroke.
🔖Two-way Or Crown: Even though these blades are similar in tooth profile to the reverse tooth saw blades, they have the ability to cut in both stroke direction. They are suitable for fine finishes on plastic materials and bring out the desired results in certain delicate assignments.
🔖Double Skip Tooth: Double skip tooth blade has two teeth between the intervals as opposed to single teeth prominent on other saw blades. Since they cross the surface twice with each spin, they tend to yield a smoother surface. However, they are much slower in the process, which is good since they are intended for delicate objects.
🔖Skip Tooth: Skip tooth blade exhibits spacious teeth gaps. These blades are ideal for beginners in woodwork, due to the fact that they are not very sharp and does not require a high accuracy project.
