the blades will have small pins at each end
fit it in the table end first as this is the end that does the work
then pull the top down to fit the blade in the slot
The top is normally only spring loaded
Which Scroll Saw are you using...there are multiple brands and multiple models. Help us out and tell us which one you have.
Most of the time there is a clamping mechanism that holds the top of the blade in place. Many models have a door or some access point to the lower end of the blade, too, which you'll have to get to as well.
You'll also usually find that there is some type of blade tension device that needs to be released and then reset before you can install and use a new blade. Make sure the new blade is the same length as the old one, also, make sure that it's the same type of blade, some have a small pin top and bottom, some do not.
Finally, check out YouTube and see if anyone has put up a video for your brand of Scroll Saw. May be the answer.
Almost all scroll saws use a 5 inch blade. You need to take all the tension off your saw before installing the blade. Make sure you are using the right kind of blade. Either it is a pinned blade or non pinned blade. Some saws can use either. Make sure the teeth on the blade is facing down toward your saw table. Clamp the blade into the blade clamps and then add the tension. You should be ready to go now
If you haven't watched this video, you may want to check it out, just to make sure that you are following the procedure. From what you have said, you are doing it correctly, but perhaps by watching it, you may catch something that we are missing.
the 24 TPI is the one to use. It sounds as if the blade is running to fast and over heating the blade and causing it to lose the temper in the balde steel. Try slowing the blade speed down if you can. Also you can try putting some cutting oil on the balde to stop it from clogging up. You can also rig up a small air line to blow on the cutting area to cool it down and remove the metal chips. I've also applied some wax to the blade every so often. A candle will work for this too. Hope this helps you, Jeepfxr
