Some of the things I thought about 10/0 saw blades:
a) They will break if you look at them wrong - or even if you just
look at them, maybe.
b) Being so thin front-to-back they will wander all over instead of
sawing a straight line.
c) because of a and b I’d be frustrated and miserable if I tried to
d) They don’t really exist anyway. Have you ever seen them listed in
It turns out I have not broken a blade yet (after several hours of
piercing). I am having an /easier/ time following my line because
the blade is so thin I can see exactly where it is relative to the
line. I never thought using a 10/0 blade might actually be fun, but
the tiny things I’ve been able to saw out turned out so well I am
having a great time. Who would have thought?
And they do exist. Knew Concepts sells them. See:
Some tips. The tensioning knob on the Knew Concept saw makes it easy
to set the tension and not snap the blade. See the “View Product
Description” link on the website. Lee and Brian at Knew Concepts are
really nice people to do business with. You would also not go wrong
by having great eyes or a #7 Optivisor.
