Its good to hear that your back, up and raring to get on with things

As for cutting pipe, well, it depends on the pipe dont you think? At
the end of the day what ever is easiest for you and what ever tools
you have to hand.
For example,. you could use a power hack saw machine or an angle
grinder with the 1.5mm cut off disks available now.
Or as you say, cut with a jewellers saw or pipe cutter.
Now take a piece of 1/4in wall thickness by 4in dia water pipe, yes
you could cut with a jewellers saw but it might take you a week to do
Depends wether you want to struggle or take the easy way to do this.
Its horses for courses and theres no substitue for having a go.
Try a no of ways and go with whatever you like the best.

If I read you correctly, are you serious about forging silver on a
tape covered piece of round wood? If you can get that to work I love
to know how.
Folding fine silver foil like oregami is a neat idea.
Before trying it with the real stuff, have you had a go with
aluminimum kitchen foil? I had my 5yr old grandson here to stay for a
few days, we made lots of paper aeroplanes AND also made them from
too thin so we then got out some 10/1000 in ali foil which was
stiffer. that worked fine.
