Hello out there in Orchid-land!
Any advice for sawing a thick line in thin-gauge metal?
I am using 26g silver and would like to attach it to another piece
of the same using the method someone here (was it Charles
Lewton-Brain?) likened to paper doll base assembly; i.e. a cut
through one piece fits into a cut through the other piece.
Since the original sawed line is so small (I’m using a 2/0 blade,
which I know isn’t small enough for the metal but it’s the smallest
I have…I am only cutting about 2-3mm into the piece so the blade
hasn’t been breaking) I can’t go in and file it, and saw-filing
isn’t really working for me (the pieces are tiny tiny and it’s hard
enough to hold them even for the original sawed line). Should/could
I use a bigger blade, even though it’s thin metal?
I know it’s a long shot, but hey - Orchid’s full of answers for long
