Dremel Moto-Saw Blade Facts

commentsThis video dispels some misconceptions about Dremel Moto-Saw Blades, whether they are proprietary or not, how much they cost, and where you can buy them.  The second half covers which kind and how many blades are included in the Dremel MotoSaw Set. I love my neat little Dremel Moto-saw Scrollsaw, and was pleased to find 10 blades included with the new saw. However, I was also a little irritated that they were not marked or identified in any way and not described in the instructions. In fact, the blades are barely mentioned in the product manual!

I love my neat little Dremel Motosaw Scrollsaw, and was pleased to find 10 blades included with the new saw.  However, they were not marked or identified in any way and not described in the instructions. In fact, the blades are barely mentioned in the product manual!  Here’s my attempt to help other newbie woodworkers sort it out, since Dremel made no atttempt to do so.  You may want to watch my  Dremel Moto Saw Test Drive video ( see related posts in the sidebar). You can see more questions and answers, read reviews and purchase the Dremel Moto-Saw on Amazon.

You can find more information on
Dremel’s Moto-saw product page on Dremel.com.
And Dremel’s Blade Identification Chart.

Is it just me?  Or did anyone else find the blades confusing?

      Hi Sharon,
      I guess it would be considered a bottom feeder because the top arm does not lift up. And the way you connect the blade is by slipping it into a groove on the bottom of the moto-saw first. The you kind of pivot the blade up into the top section.

      So if I had a pilot hole drilled in a piece of wood first, I would connect the blade into the bottom section, slip the wood onto the blade, and then pivot the blade into the top of the arm. And push the blue lever over to lock it all into place.

      I hope that makes sense?!

    Thanks for your prompt response, you are awesome.!! I received my new dremel scroll saw recently and currently have it hooked up to my kitchen counter, but since I have been reading about using it in garage or outside, due to the wood dust. I am waiting to get a 42″ work table where I will be able to stand and work. I am so anxious to start, but it look so intimidating, I am going to start with cutting out shapes and take it from there. I will be following your videos, because the way you explain things, makes it easy to follow.
    Thanks again ,
    Sharon

      Hi Sharon! I’m delighted that you find my videos easy to follow; that’s the nicest compliment I could ever get! Thank you for your kind words. I’m pretty sure you can hook up a vacuume cleaner hose to the bottom of the base, to deal with sawdust. I haven’t tried it yet but I’ll attempt it in my next Moto-saw video, which I’ll be making soon. I’ve been wanting to do a close up of installing the blades. I keep reading online that people are finding the blades difficult to install. It’s a little tricky at first, but once you do it a few times, I’ve found that it is just so easy to do. Hopefully I can get that posted this weekend. Thanks again! Mimi

        I will be one of your followers no doubt. I like learning new things and this was something I have been wanting to do for about 4 years I bet, but was intimidated by. So now I have decided to take on this challenge. I am sure with your video tutorials I will.
        Thanks again.

          Hi Sharon! I added a little more info to this video about Dremel Motosaw Blades, including where you can buy replacement blades and another company that makes 4″ blades to fit the Moto-Saw.

          I’m working on a video right now, where I cut plexiglas and show some better close-ups of installing the blade.

    Oops! I forgot to include the link to the new video post:
    http://heymimi.com/how-to-install-dremel-moto-saw-blades/

    For my blog readers who are interested in the Dremel Motosaw, I have a new video post about how to install blades in the Dremel Moto-saw. The first minute or so of the video, shows how to attach the unit to your workbench, table or desk. But most of the video is several close-up views of how to insert and lock-in those 4″ pin blades. I show this step close-up from 3 or 4 different viewpoints. Once you watch it, I feel confident that you will have no trouble installing a blade in your Dremel Moto-Saw!
    Good Luck and have fun!
    Mimi

    Remember, spectacles could be a fantastic way of changing
    your look and articulating your personal individual fashion perception so have fun and experiment with different styles.

    However, if one had been donning range spectacles, the
    change to bifocals or progressive lens might be a huge modification.
