essential high-quality consumableI used the No3 blades to cut out intricate shapes in hard 1.2mm brass sheet. This requires turning the work-piece through nearly 170 degrees and producing a sharp bottomed Vee. Breakages of the thinnest of these blade due to operator clumsiness, are quite frequent but the quality of cut is very good. I find it difficult, particularly with cold hands to mount the blade ensuring that the toothed side is facing the operator and have broken one blade on tensioning. The problems I have faced are due to the type of work being undertaken and when cutting large radius curves or straight lines the blades cut hard brass very well.
