    From the Editor

    Before having the opportunity to work on this book, I had no idea I had been using my own saw incorrectly for years! I also had no idea of the scope of things the jeweler's saw can cut. After learning the in-depth material from this book, I now love my saw more than ever and have been inspired to try things I wouldn't have attempted previously.
