Reference and Instructional Materials

These are some materials I put together to help me in my work.

Jeweler’s Saw Sizes Table showing information about the different sizes of jeweler’s saws, including, kerf, tooth spacing, pilot drill sizes, and the number of teeth captured within the thickness of different gauge metals. The latter is color coded to show which saw blades are most appropriate to use for which gauge metals.
Wire and Drill Sizes Table of wire and sheet AWG sizes along with English fractional, numbered, letter, and metric drill sizes in both decimal inches and millimeters
Using an Arbor Press to Stamp Metal This note shows how I use an arbor press to hold a stamp precisely in position to stamp metal
