spray the back side of the brass sheet with some light-tack spray glue
and attach it to a piece of 1/4” plywood (luan) – - – yes, 1/6” will do fine.
(double sided tape will gum up the teeth on the blades).
you will have to practice on anything thicker than 1/16” as that depends on your saw,
your design, your nimble fingers, your keen eye, and patience.
when the blade appears to get dull – replace it.
practice – you will get over the learning curve rather quickly and it is smooth
sailing from there on out.

-- Failure is proof that you at least tried ~ now, go do it again, and again, until you get it right --
