Re: Cutting Horse Creek Chert
I have access to 2 18 inch saws, and have been flintknapping for about 3 years. Still learning too. HC chert is gorgeous stuff. I can cut it to your specs for either trade of some of the material, or for the usual 25� per inch (which adds up quickly, sorry). The rock shop down the street charges 50� per inch.
Post here if interested, I'll email you off forum if you provide your email addy. Time is limited, getting too hot here to spend any time in the shop. 97 today.. Shop has no cooling except for a fan.
You want it 1/4 to 5/16 thick or are you after tools other than points too and want some thicker. Will need to know sizes of stones before I can go any further. They have to be big enough and shaped so they can be held in.the saw's vise and still leave room for cutting.
