    Question about brass shim stock & metal working

    I need to tap into the forum's experience... I need a malleable brass sheet that I can shape, but I need it, in theory to be thick enough to still cut it with a jeweler's saw, in the event I cannot cut it with some kind of metal cutting shears. Any thoughts about thickness of brass? and size of jewelers saw blades you would use? It appears that shim stock is Type 260 and half hard from online metal suppliers. I am finding an assortment from Amazon and Zoro, etc, etc... Brass Shim Stock Assortment, Number of Pieces 12, Thickness Range 0.001-0.015 Inch, 6 x 12 Inches, Cold Rolled, Half Hard Type 260 Brass And dead soft brass from Rio Grande... https://www.riogrande.com/Product/Jewelers-Brass-6-x-12-Sheet-16-Ga-Dead-Soft/130116 I welcome your comments.
