Okay all you lapidarys, got a question for you. I’m wondering if there
are any kits out there (or plans) for building your own slab saw?
My wife and I create beautiful wire wrapped jewelry (which you will soon
be able to see on the gallery). I am also a lapidary. My problem is,
being a struggling artist, it’s very difficult to put out the BIG bucks
for lap equipment that is needed. I am in need of a slab saw (say a 16"
to 18") but can’t afford the hefty price tag of a new one. Besides
looking for a used saw, I was curious if anybody has any plans for
building your own saw or if there are any kits available. If so, what
kind of expense am I looking at? How reliable are they?
Any help you can send my way is greatly appreciated.
