Re: Sears/Craftool Lapidary Unit Manual

It's probably a 10" blade, maybe 8", and is probably considered a slab/trim saw. Does it have a vise? You can slab small material with it. I mean whatever size rock the blade will cut you can slab. You can slab with a 4" saw if the rock is small enough. Water has a tendency to rust bearings and may wear your blade out faster. You run the grinding wheels on water, the diamond blade on oil. I personally use lubricool from kingsleynorth in my saws.

If you are unsure how to use the unit and can't find a manual, basically any 'how to cut and polish rocks' manual would apply to your unit. All units are fundamentally the same, arbor shaft, bearings and grinding wheels. Chances of the shaft getting damaged are near zero, everything else is universal. So.....sounds like you need a crash course in cutting rocks. I'm not a real expert, which is surprising as much as I know. The more I know the more I find out I don't know.
