Ok, I confess. My first scroll saw was 30 years ago. For some reason I always believed the saw cut on the up stroke. For 30 years I have been putting the blades in with the teeth facing up, and wondering why no one came up with a good hold down. I really didn't like to use my scroll saw very much. Imagine my surprise to read on the Forum that the teeth go down. Thank you Forum, enjoying scrolling finally.

Haa haa 30 years I'd have thrown it out the window by then.
Ah well good news for you then. __________________ Roly https://www.facebook.com/Scrollsaw-Woodworker-578378898839152/

Great story George! I have a lot of, ""I always thought you did it this way ..." moments too! We're always learning from forum members.

People some times do this with band saws.
I've also see table saw blades inserted backward. You are not alone. __________________ Advanced techniques are the basics perfectly applied. Odin's Toy Factory Etsy Store Facebook Pinterest Google+ Blogg er Forum Photo Album LinkedIn YouTube Google Photos Toys Album
