So, I got a great little saw and then just needed some time to get DH to sit down and try it out. For some reason I am intimidated with the saw. I am a happy camper using my torch and other machines, but something about that little blade spinning around so fast makes me quake. I value my fingers too much I guess.
He is used to woodworking and this is very similar. Just a lot harder to cut than wood.
While at the show, I picked up some rock slabs so he can practice. It took him about 3 stones to get into the groove.
Well there have been a hitch or two...a couple of the stones kept popping off of the dop stick for a while, but he conquered that. Sometimes a stone has a fissure in it that will split when you are grinding it. But, no worries, you just re-grind it to the new size!
So, if you are trying to figure out what to immerse yourself it, keep looking and you will find it!
