Re: Startup Equipment

Like yourselves, I took my lifelong passion for collecting "rocks" to the next level just a year ago and invested in cutting and polishing equipment. My advice is to go with the best you can afford, not forgetting that supplies, like cutting oil, templates, dop equipment, etc., must also be figured in. My choice for a rock saw was Lortone (12 inch slab saw), and Diamond Pacific (Genie for grinding and polishing). I haven't regretted it. The only thing I would do different would be to buy the 14 inch slab saw instead of the 12 inch. You will also need a good trim saw. I went with a 4 inch, but plan on trading up to a 6 inch. You simply cannot go wrong buying quality equipment from the start.
