Re: Re: Re: Diamond Bandsaw?

Hi Daniel

Thanks for your input. I do want it for non-production use. I am a novice at this and although I have been making jewelery for 42 years since I was 14, I still have a passion for stones and jewelery. I love cutting cabs it's a new string to my bow and keeps the interest fresh. Its good to know you have a Gryphon as this seems to be the one I'm leaning towards. There are a number of reasons for this as I have mentioned in other posts. The other reason I don't know if it is the way I've been trained over the years to be efficient with metal especially when piercing shapes but I have some really nice slabs (IMHO) and if I use the trim saw I will lose some wonderful material. It's not so much about getting as many cabs as I can but saving the good material. It's most probably my lack of experience in cutting cabs but I'm enjoying the journey!!

All the best
Chris
