I have my first tutorial up at JewelryLessons.com! It’s called Learn to Saw with a Jeweler’s Saw. This 16 page tutorial has loads of pictures. Here’s the description:

This lesson shows how to saw an oval out of copper using a jeweler’s saw. We will cover how to load the saw blade, how to start, the sawing itself, and a little filing at the end. Plus, a glossary of terms used.

Material List:
1 pkg of 12 3/0 sawblades
scrap copper to practice sawing
permanent marker to draw on metal
beeswax or other saw lubricant

Tool List:
Needle nose pliers
Jeweler’s Saw Frame
