one mother of a rock saw

It was about this time last year when we heard of a rock saw for sale. A fellow member of the Burns Lake rockhound club was selling this one. The price was very good, so we told him we'd take it. Then it snowed. So it sat in his yard over the winter and we were only able to go and get it, finally, about 3 weeks ago.It's a biggie. The blade is about 2 feet in diameter. Maybe this winter we'll get our lapidary workshop set up. We kind of miss it.

I would like one of those beasties.
I wonder if they make a smaller version?

Absolutely they do! They can be expensive, so the best place to look is on any of the rockhounding websites or better yet with clubs and events they hold. Or if you happen to know any rockhounds that could keep their eye open on your behalf. Know any?
