IDEAL SAW FOR THE SMALL LAPIDARY SHOP

The Model 16 is economical, occupies little floor space yet with a 16 inch blade it can easily cut large geodes, agates, nodules and pieces of petrified wood up to 5-1/2 inches in their least dimension.  This saw can take advantage of thinner kerf blades available in smaller diameters.  It is an ideal saw for both the new hobbyist and the seasoned pro.
