Slab Saws

What are the difference between a slab saw and a trim saw?   The diameter of the blade and the type of vise on the saw are the important differences.

A small saw blade means the size of rock one can cut is limited, as an example, a 10” blade can only cut a rock about 4” in diameter.  While this may be large enough for most situations it does limit the rocks one can cut.

If one is creating a slab, the thickness is critical and must be maintained from one slab to another very closely.  So once the rock is clamped into the vise, it must be able to advance the rock every time by the same amount.  Some vises will not allow for this type of accuracy and this is where the type of vise on the saw becomes very important. 

On the other hand, when trimming a cab, you need to cut very close to a scribed line and this needs to be done freehand.  A trim saw has a flat surface built up to the blade to support the small cab you are trying to trim.  Large slab saws are not built to handle this sort of work.  Besides some people might feel intimidated holding a small piece of rock next to a large saw blade that is drenching them in oil.

Slab saws have larger diameter blades than trim saws, and the blades also tend to be thicker than those used on trim saws.  The extra blade thickness helps increase cutting speed.

Saw Buying Tips

  • A general rule of thumb for choosing a saw: Anticipate what the maximum size would be of the largest rock you would be cutting and choose a (blade) size at least 3 times as large as the material you wish to cut.
  • Are you planning on slabbing small to moderate sized geodes and rough? A 10" or 12" saw with power feed will work well. Do you need to cut large cross sections on a production basis? Choose an 18" variable feed saw.
  • Realize that there are tradeoffs: Understand that every rock will cut differently and that everyone demands different results. Thin blades will wander more than heavier, sturdier blades. Hard rock demands premium oil coolant. Fast feed rates can mean greater chance of blade damage if something slips or breaks during the cut. Do some homework and be willing to sacrifice some things to get what's really important.
  • Pay attention to the blade: Before any other components, go for the best blade that you can afford. The blade will dictate the resulting smoothness and flatness and is crucial in getting a good cut.

Industrial & Commercial Slab Saws

Diamond Pacific rugged slab saws are designed for heavy duty slabbing and quartering of rock chunks smaller saws cannot handle. From the proven dependability and long line of familiar names Highland Park, Frantom, Beacon Star: Diamond Pacific has blended together the best features of all three to produce the new Contempo line of slab saws. As a result, they have included the following features:
The wood faced jaws open extra wide and adjust using a high leverage, vise compression crank wheel. V-grooved, ball bearing guide rollers glide the vise carriage smoothly on precision ground, steel V-ways attached to heavy steel channels. A positive slide-setting non-slip action positions the vise. An automatic safety switch with length adjustment and an on/off, industrial rated, manual starter switch to complete the precision maintained carriage assembly.

The rigid, cast aluminum vise and housing are mounted in a heavy gauge steel box of 3/16" steel plate with sloping bottom and easy clean out drain. A sturdy lightweight hood with a Plexiglas window permits ways viewing of all saw operations. Belts and external moving parts are safety shut-off switch when the hood is raised. All these features, and more, combine to give you a better saw.

The powerglide hydraulic feed system is a standard on the 18" or 24" saws. Powerglide cuts faster than any screw feed system, cutting agate at about 3 square inches per minute and onyx at about 10 square inches per minute. Stones of other hardness’s fall between these figures.

Multi-stage filter and recirculation system moves large volumes of clean oil over the cutting surface to keep it cool and lubricated. It consists of a holding tank with multiple setting chambers, submersible pump, and wash hose.

Arbor shaft is 1" diameter in a one piece, cast aluminum arbor housing with sealed ball bearings. Heavy duty tank of 3/16" steel plate, heavy steel legs on casters allow moving of saw. Leveling screws on each leg. Blade not included in saw price. Choice of blade depends on your application. Please call for more information.

* Note: These items have a crating fee of TR-18 = $252, TR24 = $289 and TR36 = $525, and require a freight charge to be determined at the time of your order.

Saw Buying Tips

  • Realize that there are tradeoffs: Understand that every rock will cut differently and that everyone demands different results. Thin blades will wander more than heavier, sturdier blades. Hard rock demands premium oil coolant. Fast feed rates can mean greater chance of blade damage if something slips or breaks during the cut. Do some homework and be willing to sacrifice some things to get what's really important.
  • Pay attention to the blade: Before any other components, go for the best blade that you can afford. The blade will dictate the resulting smoothness and flatness and is crucial in getting a good cut.

·  Electroplated blades cost less, and at first glance may seem like the most cost effective alternative. However, they will cost you more in the long run.

  • Depending on material and application, metal bonded blades will last significantly more than 100 electroplated diamond blades put together. You can't get more life out of any other blade. Instead of constantly putting blades on and off the saw, you will save money by using one blade. This means cost per cut, metal bond blades are the best choice.
  • Electroplated blades have only one layer of diamond coated on metal core. Diamonds sit only on the surface. When this diamond portion is peeled off, the blade will slow down, cut on the side (not cut straight) or stop working (cutting) altogether. 
  • Metal bonded blades are sintered and impregnated inside the metal matrix. Multiple layers of diamonds are impregnated inside the metal matrix. Unlike electroplated blades, metal bond blades wear evenly, and are known for their consistency. You will get consistent cutting speed, and overall consistent performance from sintered (metal bonded) blades.

Q.    What does "Sintered" mean?
A.    Sintered refers to a process where the diamond abrasive is mixed in a powdered metal, formed to shape, and heated until the metal fuses together.  This gives a finished product where the diamond is distributed though the full depth of the abrasive thickness.

Q.    Is sintered better?
A.    Not necessarily, depending on the composition, sintered tools can provide many times the tool life, but they are much more expensive. There are over 200 different combinations of diamond concentration, particle size and metal matrix composition. This mix can be tailored to a specific job or material to be cut.

Q.   How do I sharpen my diamond saw blade?
A.    Try making a few cuts in obsidian, glass, or an old grinding wheel. If there are diamonds left on your saw blade, this will usually re-sharpen your diamond saw blade and extend it's life.

Q.    Does the blade speed really make a difference?
A.    Absolutely yes. Proper blade speed will increase performance and blade life. The easy way to get the proper blade speed is with the use of pulleys. For example; the 6X.006 and 6X.012 PRO-SLICER blades are recommended for use at 3450 RPM. Using a standard 1725 RPM. motor, you use a 2" diameter blade shaft pulley and a 4" diameter pulley on the motor. This simple 2 to 1 pulley ratio doubles the speed of your blade from the 1750 RPM motor speed to the proper 3400 RPM blade speed.

Q.    Can I extend the life of my blades?
A.    Yes, you can expect to get long life with your blades as long as you use reasonable care. By reasonable care, we mean using the recommended rpm, proper coolant, correct blade flanges and a saw in good operating condition. Blades are designed for long life, smooth cuts with very little chipping or break out, and a thin kerf means less loss on your valuable rough.        

Q.    My saw has a different arbor size.  Can I get larger arbor sizes? How about MM size arbors?
A.    We can supply your Pro-Slicer, Gorilla, and Meteorite blades in five additional arbor sizes at no extra charge. We offer 3/4", 1", 1 1/4", 20MM, and 30mm arbor sizes.

Q.    Why didn't I get the life I expected from my diamond blade?
A.    The most likely problem is lack of proper coolant. Other things, such as sawing metallics or pushing too hard, will have a negative impact on blade life. Let the diamonds do the work, don't force your material through the blade. Diamonds are not good for cutting most metals. If you are cutting metals, try our new METEORITE CBN blade. The METEORITE is specifically designed to cut metals.

 

Diamond Lapidary and Glass Blades- Excellent quality and fast cutting.  Cuts glass and precious materials quickly.  These blades are designed for the high yield cutting.  The price makes them quite affordable for any general-purpose use.

 

When ordering specify 'Lapidary and Glass Blades' and blade diameter, thickness and arbor size.

Covington’s new Gold Series diamond blades are excellent quality, commercial grade blades for lapidary work and glass work.  More diamonds in the notched rim design and a stiffer core make for faster cutting and longer blade life.  Designed for hard materials like agates, geodes and perified wood but cuts soft material such as glass superbly.

 

When ordering specify 'Gold Series' and blade diameter, thickness and arbor size.

Sintered Diamond Blades The sintered saw blade offers a longer lasting option compared to the notched rim.  These blades are manufactured by embedding diamond grit directly into the metal matrix that forms the edge of the saw blade.  Over the long run, sintered offer a better value than other blades.

   Meteorite CBN Blades

Our Meteorite Blades are a really good answer for cutting iron meteorites, most stony meteorites, most metals and many composites. this blade has a unique abrasive edge of CBN ( cubic boron nitride). It is unlike diamonds which suffers badly on most metallic’s. This unique edge loves to cut these things. It is the best choice for these jobs. Cutting goes quickly and there is little lost from the thin edge. Must be used with coolant. Oil is best, but our Lube Cool in high concentration is o.k.  

When ordering specify 'Meteorite CBN Blade' and blade diameter, thickness and arbor size.
