Help!
Maybe OT Scroll saw blades

I didn't know which forum to post this. I plan to do alot of scratch
buillt foamies and need to repair my broken gws models, I picked up a vari speed Craftsman 5" scroll saw at a local flea market this weekend.
It did not have any blades and when I looked up blades on ebay, well there are too many types out there. I need to cut thin aluminum, balsa & if possible
foam. So far Ive found spiral, skip tooth, reverse tooth, 46 t metal cutting, & size # 1-11, I need alittle help or sugguestion as to what would be best the blades for this hobby.

The more teeth on the blade the smoother it will cut, especially in thin materials. The narrower, front to back, the tighter the radius can be cut. Spiral blades allow you to cut in any direction without having to rotate the work piece. For plastic you may want to slow the speed down to keep from melting the plastic. RT's suggestion is a good one, buy a combo pack and see what works.
