Re: Cutting tufa stone [Jewelry Discussion] [Ganoksin Orchid Jewelry Forum Community for Jewelers and Metalsmiths]

I frequently use soapstone blocks for pewter casting, and for small cuts, I often use a backsaw (made for wood work). It’s no good for cutting wood, anymore, but still has good teeth and cuts the soft stone just fine; and I know that the tufa is neither as hard, nor as dense.
