I posted this on a scrolling/intarsia forum, but I'm hoping that I can
get some experienced responses here.
I've been scrolling now for all of ten days, so it goes without saying
that I don't have much experience. In time, that will change.
However, I do have a question about blades breaking. So far (knock on
scrolled wood!), I haven't had a blade break. Now, this will change one
day and I will experience what every scroller does ... dealing with a
My question ... WHAT happens when the blade breaks? Does the scroll saw
stop? Does the bobbing up and down fling the blade about? Should I have
lots of bandaids next to my scroll saw?
I'd like to know what happens so that - when it does happen - I'll be
prepared, as least mentally.
