Re: Cutting geodes

You can use a tile saw that has a water tray underneath, but cutting those things by hand will leave some pretty ugly blade marks that will take forever to sand out. I would recommend either forking over a grand for a rock saw that has an automatic power feed and oil bath, or go to a rock shop and pay them a few bucks to cut it for you. Cutting by hand can create hours more work and grit to get the thing smoothly polished.
