Scroll Saw Blades
I just picked up a scroll saw. I wanted to know what kind of blades do I use for kydex.
I got a spiral blade but it flexes quite a bit. It also kind of melts the kydex. So I am not sure how I feel about it.
Thanks for the help guys.
I have not worked with kydex yet but i have worked with an awful lot of abs plastic. Abs is a pain to cut with a saw and i imagine kydex is too since they are related. Best method with abs is to score it and snap it like with plexi glass or lexan.
A lot of kydex guys have scroll saws so it must work good for them.

If you can use large void blades i have a bandsaw blade you could have for cost of shipping.. i no longer own the saw it was for. I think it would be fairly easy to make custom scroll saw blades with some low temp silver solder.
I appreciate that but I will look locally.
