  • At the risk of....

    Asking another stupid question....I must set my pride aside once again....

    I am looking for an inexpensive solution to a slight problem. I want to be able to cut novaculite. I picked up a dremel table saw some time ago and with a little help from a friend, am able to mount a quality 4" diamond blade on it. The problem is that it does not cut the harder grades well. It throws a lot of sparks and the heat and friction generated often make the stone crack. So I am thinking that I will need to try out a wet saw. It will not see a whole lot of use and the quality of the blade will overshadow the quality of the saw. This is a given. So I am looking at ebay, the local penny saver and shopper, AND .... I hate to admit it....Harbor Freight.

    That being said....

    Where the hell does the water/oil go?? The ones That I have seen by MK and the like have a resivoar and a pump to keep the blade wet.

    Does this saw likely have a pan under the blade?

    I think central mach is a little better choice than chicago electric though? But then again I guess it merely comes down to the blade in use.

    I have found some QUALITY blades. Of course MK, Hilti has a line, micro mark makes one, norton abrasives, etc
