Saw blades are available in a variety of sizes. A size 14 is the coarsest, and an 8/0 is the finest. A good size for general work on gold is a 2/0 blade. You need to use finer blades for thin sheets of metal. Greater care is needed while sawing with finer blades as they break easily. As a general guide, two teeth of the blade should be in contact with the metal at all times when sawing.
