    Default First go at piercing

    I got myself one of those Knew Concept saws and here is my first attempt at using it. I practiced on copper of course! I only managed to break 1 blade and I wasn't even sawing I was trying to lubricate it, haha!

    Wow Lou... they're awesome! Well done!

    How did you find the Knew Concept saw? Was it easy getting the blades in and adjusting the tension? How did it feel sawing the copper (which I do find slightly harder to pierce than silver)?

    Thank you! I found it fine to cut the copper, I am actually glad I broke the first blade that came with it as it was much easier with a number 4 as I was cutting 18g. The saw is great, I managed to change the blade and you just turn the little knob to tension it, easy peasy. This is my first saw so I can't really compare it too the other styes with regards to tensioning but I am glad I got this one, def recommened!

    Vi, I haven't touched another sawframe since I got my Knew Concept. I've always enjoyed piercing, but found it frustrating at times. It's now a real pleasure!

    That's beautiful work, Lou and as George agrees about the saw and she's a 'still waters run deep' sort of person, I have ordered one today. I hesitate to comment further, but in my head I'm always thinking 'what next'. I wonder Whether you might consider putting a differnt coloured metal behind your pierced design next time? Kind regards Dennis.

    Lovely stuff Lou :-) This is the first I've heard of the Knew Concept saw...I need to know more! Does it take some of the muscle work out of piercing? I'm finding my hands get quite achey with my traditional piercing saw :-/

    This is the first saw I have ever used so I can't compare, but it was easy to use, I am on my fourth piece and I haven't broken another blade yet so all good.
