If I could afford a pro like Bob Page to do my finer tooth saws I 
certainly would.
In fact I would hire him right on the spot if it weren't for ruinous 
postage both ways.

   Shipping is pretty cruel these days. I just returned an alternator to 
Rock Auto using their returns connection with Fedex. 10 bucks to ship a 
15 pound thing in a box across the country.
They'd have charged me 30-40. Even the post office would have wanted over 20

  In my dim age here I have to do fine teeth by feel more than anything 
I use great light and magnification, but still it comes down to feel for me.
   I suppose that is partly "miniature training".  When the work is so 
small your fingertips or even a tiny tool completely obscure it, working 
by feel is all you have.
It can sometimes be surprising what you can do by not even looking.
