Please advise a newby! In the UK I have difficulty buying scroll saw blades. You seem to have a standard no. for them, ie #2 or #5 etc. I use a pinless blade (very little choice) described as- reverse tooth hss 13 TPI .70mm Scroll saw blade. Question is, what does this equate to? ie #2,#3#5, or what. Any help appreciated . thanks Suggestions where I can buy a greater choice also appreciated

Here is a copy of Olson blade chart it has good pictures and gives you a rough idea as to what blades you have.
There are variation between manufacturers even if the blade number is the same.

Hi from another newby.
Might be to late, going on dates.
blades in uk, I have found some via ebay,
144 Medium Grade Plain Ended Scrollsaw Blade Assortment Hobbies Niqua Blades | eBay
they also do others.
Niqua blades, which I think is similar/same as flying dutchman, from what I read, the best. I am still learning about the sizes.
Not a lot of choice in Uk, can get a lot from above, BUT. different sizes of reverse tooth skip tooth etc do not seem available.
I find the company linked above to be very good, quick delivery. But, limited if you want different blades.
I am still loking for a good supply.

I get my Pegas blades from Workshop Heaven (Workshop Heaven - Fine Tools) which despite the .com extension is actually a UK company. The prices are really good as well.
