TIPS AND TECHNIQUES
Whatever materials you choose to cut on you)' scroll saw, here are a few tips that will help.
Applying clear packing tape over the pattern helps lubricate the blade during sawing. Remember though, don't get any tape on the rear of mirrored Plexiglas or it will peel away the mirror finish when the tape is pulled off.
To stack cut two or more layers of Plexiglas, place wax paper between the layers to prevent them from welding together.
To cut thin brass, sandwich it between two layers of thin plywood. To support small fragile areas, use a pencil with a good/new eraser to hold down next to the blade while sawing. You can also punch a hole in a business card or playing card and tape it on your saw table io add support under the workpiece.
Use skip tooth blades for these small jewelry projects rather than reverse tooth blades which sometimes catch and lift (and break oft)
delicate pieces of the projects. ■■■■■■■■■
