Re: How should I put a 24" saw to work??

Hi Rob,

I have been recently pondering along similar lines myself. Res ipsa loquitur: You put a rock saw to work by cutting rocks with it. Duh! ;)

I think the underlying question, perhaps not quite as easy to answer, is: How do I make working the saw worth my while?

Which ultimately leads to yet another underlying question, "What is worth my while"?

If "worth my while" involves making money at it, I'm reasonably confident there are a lot more 24" rock saws out there than there are people making money working them...

Here's one approach to marketing saw work:

Slabs look big on eBay to me. I've seen some slab auctions on eBay fetch amounts exceeding what I consider stupid money. Although I've yet to try selling anything on eBay, from what I understand eBay definitely takes their pound of flesh. For eBay merchants that is simply a cost of business, and when you begin with 20 pounds out of the chute anyway...

Keep on Rock'n!
