I have tried to locate the mandrel and saw that were referred to in the article discussing this subject, but I think the links are outdated. Could someone please suggest other locations these pieces might be found and give specs for them?

Thanks

I was unable to find this info as well.

Specifically the saw and arbor from this article:

Does anybody know if korund blades (Ø 83 mm and 0,7 mm thick) for a dremel tool would work? How long do they last?
I found a place where they sell diamond blades (Ø 20 mm and 0,6 mm thick) too. But I'm afraid these are a bit to small for the set-up in Stargazor's article...

I use some .004 inch blades on my flexshaft and they work great .. and since most dremels have a flex attach, they should be fine.
However ALWAYS wear gloves .. and start slowly to get your feel for the metal/blade cutting. I like about 7krpm

Yeah I ran into the same problem. I have run all over town looking for blades and cant find any. If anyone knows of a website or store i could pick up a blade that woul be great. Star recommended a 2" Dia. blade with 152 teeth and .020" thick. So thats what I'm looking for.

Just go to TRL, buy their blade, and be done with it. Easy easy.

Some other (perhaps) useful links:

http://www.thurstonmfg.com/pg_4.htm
http://www.malcosaw.com/jewelers_slotting_saws.html
http://www.cmitools.com/product/hss/hss_jewel.htm
http://www.newmantools.com/thurston/pg_4.htm
http://jtsmach.com/jtswebshop/saws/S058.asp

But they're all American. And I don't want to pay $ 50 just for shipping. Crying (very sad)

you know what, I could have sworn I replied to this thread already...

I spent 3 hours finding UK suppliers of 0.008inch saw blades and posted a few.. I guess I hit the wrong button...

http://www.chronos.ltd.uk/acatalog/Chronos_Catalogue_HSS_Slitting_Saws_Slotting_Saws___Holders_180.html

I'm sure there's one that would fit you in there somewhere..

http://www.addisonsaws.co.uk/content.php?info_id=285

although addison saws don't have the prices on the site, they are about a mile from me and have e-mailled me back with prices for 3 saw sizes I asked for..

1 3/4" x 0.008" x 5/8" ( hole size assuming ) 90 teeth = £7.55 nett each
2 1/4" x 0.008" x 5/8" 60 teeth = £9.55 nett each
2 3/4" x 0.008" x 1" 73 teeth = £10.36 nett each

you'd have to sort out your own posting though..

EDIT: Ahah!!!! I knew I'd posted to a similar thread about blades...

http://www.mailleartisans.org/board/viewtopic.php?t=11368

contains a link to http://www.tapdie.com/html/slitting_saws__slitting_saws_i.html which has a list of sizes with prices..
