I done some checking on Mike's website, where I get my blades from.
There are ought sizes for most blade styles. From my understanding, jeweler’s blades have a different hardness, tooth design, and tooth set. However, I also looked today in my shop and compared a jeweler’s blade and a metal cutting blade on an order form I have with detailed photos. Those two blade types look identical in design, and different than all the wood cutting blades.
Then there’s a third blade tooth style now, to cut corian. Yes, I want to try that too.
There’s another reason though that I think jewelry blades would be good for marquetry. I’ve talked with numerous people that prefer jeweler’s blades over puzzle blades for cutting puzzles. They say there is less kerf to worry about. So, my thinking is that if there is less kerf than a puzzle blade, which I have used and leaves very little kerf, then they would be good for marquetry.
That’s just my thinking. I’ve been known to be wrong before though.
