Re: Cutting slabs

Hi Loretta,

Yes, this saw is really intended for trimming rather than slicing. However--I use my Genie saw attachment (which I think is about the same size as the Rascal) all the time for slicing. As you may imagine, though, this puts an awful lot more wear on the blade than does trimming. When my first blade started giving me problems, after slicing a big batch of agate, I finally thought to check the edge, and what do you know, the whole edge-where the diamonds are-had been worn away. Got a new blade, and the problem was fixed.
