Hi, I have the standard Porter Cable scroll saw.
But I cannot find anywhere (zip, nada, none) "pinned" PGT blades for it.
There are many for plain ends; none for pinned.
Suggestions or links? Thanks!

Todkarol: PGT (Precision Ground Tooth) blades might be a trademark product name for Olson. I am not sure, but think so. Their web site does not have pinned PGT blades that I could find. You could send them an e-mail, maybe they have them but did not post it on their web site. There are other suppliers to look at like Sawbird and Flying Dutchman. My quick review of their products they also did not post PGT pinned blades only unpinned. I have and use two (2) pinned blade scroll saws and contacted the manufacture and purchased a conversion kit allowing me to use unpinned blades. You might give that a try. I am sure generic conversion kits can be purchased but the name of the manufactures eludes me right now. You could try an internet search on that topic.
That's the best I can do for you right now buddy.
Let us know how you make out.

Thank you. I was interested in this blade because the following (bottom of aqua section) says that with it, one does not have to angle the wood to scroll it, and that patterns are much easier to follow:

Ok, I am a dork. I followed the standard Man Rule of not reading instructions, and therefore did not know that my Porter Cable accepts pinless blades, also. Now the internet and the NSA will forever know that I am a stupid :-) Mea culpa.

todkarol - You sure you want to post this ... LOL - Udie

You're not a dork at all todkarol - at least not until you ring your blade supplier to complain that one of their blades isn't cutting properly and you later ring back to apologise because you had the blade in upside down.
THEN I'm, erm, you're a dork [redface]
Don't ask me how I now this [eek]

Doc - Been there, done that, but I did not call the mfgr - Udie.
