Introduction: Using a Bandsaw Blade in a Scroll Saw
If you own both a scroll saw and a bandsaw here is an idea to recycle broken bandsaw blades by using them in your scroll saw.
You wont be able to cut tight corners and fine detail with these blades, they'er just too wide. But when you need to cut some rougher shapes in thicker wood these blades will cut much faster than a regular scroll saw blade.

Step 1: Cutting
Cut the bandsaw blade to the length of your scroll saw blades. As you can see in the image below the bandsaw blade is too wide to use in a scroll saw.
Step 2: Grinding
As the blade wont fit in your scoll saw we simple grind down the ends where it will attach to your scroll saw. How much to grind depends on the width of your bandsaw blade and the type of your scroll saw.
Step 3: Fitting
Finally try the blade in your scroll saw. If it still wont fit just grind some more.
