STACK CUTTING See Figure 19 . After becoming well acquainted with your saw through practice and experience , you may wish to try stack cutting . Stack cutting may be used when several identical shapes need to be cut . Several pieces of wood may be stacked on top and secured to each other before cutting . The wood pieces may be joined together by placing double sided tape between each 0 piece or by wrapping masking tape around the comers or ends of the stacked wood . You must attach the stacked pieces of wood to each other so they will move on the table as a single piece of material . _ k WARNING : To avoid possible , serious personal injury , do not cut more than one loose piece of material at a time . Fig . 19 CHOICE OF BLADE AND SPEED The scroll saw accepts a wide variety of blade widths and thicknesses for cutting wood and other fibrous materi - als . Your saw uses 5 inch long blades of either the pin end or the plain end style . The blade width and thickness and the number of teeth per inch to use are determined by the type of material and the size of the radius being cut . A full selection of scrollsaw blades ere available through Sears Retail Stores .
