FINALLY ‒ A 12” SLAB SAW WITH NO COMPROMISES
The Highland Park 12-inch slab saw is designed for the discerning craftsman. It is ideal for cutting agate specimens, limb casts, iris, opal, and other valuable materials where reducing blade kerf and achieving consistent smooth cuts is critical. The Model 12 is not a trim saw with a powerfeed added to it. Designed from the ground up to produce precise smooth cuts with a “real” vertical vise that will hold the material properly and a full metal enclosure, it features the same proven design concepts incorporated in the larger Highland Park style slab saws. Simply put, the Highland Park Model 12 is unmatched in its class!
We don't include the blade in this machine; the blades are sold separately. This price is for the saw only. If you wish to add a blade to your purchase, you can choose your preferred blade here.
