Re: Re: How to cutting oil

I am a complete beginner to the world of rock cutting. I have a 6" trim saw. I have been reading and researching ---mostly on line ---- but am becoming more confused. What kind of oil should I use? In your previous reply, you mentioned using mineral oil ... OK, that is great ... but do you mean regular, old, from the hardware store mineral oil... or is there a job specific kind I should learn about?
I found the oil recovery technique you mentioned of great interest both from the cost factor and from an ecological concern as well.
Please help me.

PS: I don't know if it will make a difference, but at this point I hope to cut some tigereye, rhodochrosite?? , jasper, and at a later date ... if I still have fingers, and have not done any permanent bodily harm, I would like to learn to cut some pieces of Andemooka opal I have had for several years. But that is for the future ... today I need to learn about correct cutting lubricants.

thank you

Heather
