Jeweler's saw blade size chart. For smoothest cutting, pick a blade that will have three teeth in the material at any given time. Wax or soap your blade while cutting. Also buy rounded back blades, you can make tighter turns with less binding.

Handy to know when buying sheet silver for inlays, or brass for patchbox lids, etc.

For machine nerds what want to have the tool last a long time and make nice cuts.
