In a thread far away, Gill rightly pointed out we should start a fresh thread rather than talk about jigsaw puzzles in Buying Advice , so with the miracle of Mod Power, here 'tis.
For mere mortals, who didn't have Gill to advise them at the time, a thin blade from Axminster can do a reasonable job to start with. :wink: My one and only jigsaw, 3"x4", photograph stuck on thin ply from the model shop. Carter Johnson I am not, but then who is? Apart from him, obviously... Sorry, can't remember which blade I used, it was six long years ago. You can tell by how few tools there are...Gill":nf1n85u7 said:Cutting very fine jigsaw puzzles requires very fine blades and the Eclipse blades will not be suitable. Carter Johnson uses #8/0 Jewelers blades from Sloans (who do not, unfortunately, ship overseas) plus blades from Mike Moorlach. I understand that Carter's blades rarely last longer than 2 or 3 pieces!
