Trim Saws
Trim saws are not for slabbing. The maximum depth of cut on trim saws is approximately 1-1/4" for a 4" blade, 1-5/8" for a 5" blade and 2" for a 6" blade.

Nothing is more frustrating than having a great piece of rough that has a crack running right through the center.  The anguishing decision (and perhaps expensive proposition) of which portion gets ground away into rock dust can easily be avoided by using a trim saw. You can quickly create two great pieces of rough out of one stone using a trim saw.  Trim saws also easily trim off many inclusions. After cutting a large stone into slabs, a trim saw allows you to cut out the general shape of the finished stone.

Super thin blades cut much thinner kerfs than regular saw blades. This saves more of your precious rough for faceting and cabbing and less is ground into worthless powder. The trade off is they cut slowly and don't last as long as thicker blades. Thin blades also require saws with a fast 3000 to 4000 RPM to stiffen them by centrifugal force.


Polaris 4" Trim Saw
This handy saw will trim small slabs, faceting material, turquoise and other expensive materials with minimum loss, and will split opal to expose the layer of fire in the stone. The motor is strong enough to get the job done but if you use too much pressure, it will stall (making for greater safety and longer blade life). Use the top table (shown below) and cut past the arbor or remove the top table to cut thicker pieces. The Polaris 4" Trim Saw can be used with oil or water with an additive such as Lube Cool.

Features:

  • Solid cast aluminum construction.
  • Attractive and durable powder coat finish.
  • 8 foot power cord.
  • 3000 rpm - 1/15th hp motor.
  • 1/2" arbor.
  • Saw blade included (.023" thickness rim)
  • Packet of Crystalcut included
  • Size 10 1/2" X 7 1/2"
