I spend much time sanding burnt curves on my 1 inch maple. I'm using a number seven blade. What can I do that will alleviate this problem? Will a different blade take care of this problem?

Tape has lubricating prperties. Use packing tape or there are blade lubricants for scroll saw blades.

Thanks For the suggestion. I believe my wife has some packing tape with my name on it. I will give it a try and see if that'll take care of some of that burntwood that I spent so much time trying to sand off. Thanks again .

a couple of other things to check as well would be speed of the blade, hard woods require a slower blade speed. Also the speed at which you feed the wood can make burns fairly quickly.

I would look at packing tape as well as speed of blade and feeding of the wood. Also you might look at a different blade size as well as teeth per inch... Just my 2 cents worth
