That sounds like poor quality saw blades to me, or perhaps you are trying to cut too fast?

You should be able to cut at least a few cm of coil per blade if you go slowly and carefully.

A commercial licence is one that doesn't allow for free use. Your licence terms do allow for others to use your work commercially, whereas a traditional commercial licence would disallow that unless s ...

Adding a CC license should be no problem, I would only have a problem with adding a commercial licence to a submission since M.A.I.L. is a non-commercial organization.

Welded rings are the strongest by far, next would be riveted rings. Both of those options require equipment to join the rings and then heat treatment afterwards.
