Lots of info on crown height, width, and depth of tang but not width of tang.

Can I use my .025 blade like normal or is the tang skinnier too?

The one Mando I built I used the standard blade. Just measure the wire.

If it is Stew Mac wire it is the same dimension as their other wire (.023"). I've used it for mandolins, dulcimers, and ukuleles, and cut the kerf with the same blade as their medium guitar wire.
