P.S. It seems the video had some weird color balance problems so you may see the colors change around a bit. Sorry if that causes some annoyance. We will work on fixing this in future videos.

Blade sizes in jewelry

7 – The largest jewelry blade, chunky teeth
4/0 – Use on 20-24 gauge metal
8/0 – Eight Aught, the smallest toothed jewelry blade. Fine work with thin metal.

Other tips

To check what direction the teeth of your blade is going, drag you finger along the length of the blade. If you feel some resistance, that is the direction the blades face. You want the teeth of the blades to face downwards, when inserting into your saw frame.
