Jewellery Tips & Tricks

  • Sawing Precious Metals
  • To saw a straight line, tilt the saw forward slightly. Then, the cut already made will help guide the blade, and it is easier to sight the straight line along the blade. To saw curves, keep the blade perpendicular to the metal. Tilting the saw forward while rounding a curve will pinch the blade causing it to break prematurely. To make a sharp turn, continue the same up and down rhythm without any forward pressure. Then slowly rotate the metal around the moving blade. On each downward stroke, make a slight sideways cut until you reach the new direction.
