10" Slab saw
Important purchasing note: This machine currently has a 1-2 week lead time due to supply chain issues. We are sorry for this delay, but we promise it's worth the wait!
Our American-made 10″ slab saw is a powerful, economical saw machine that is used for slabbing larger rocks, minerals and glass into more manageable pieces. This saw includes TWO different types of 10″ saw blades to best-suit your cutting material; one notched diamond saw blade and one sintered diamond saw blade. Saws are available with or without the saw vise accessory.
The Hi-Tech Diamond 10" slab saw is manufactured with a 5/8" arbor and will accept any 10" saw blade that has a 5/8" arbor. The large, removable saw table gives you plenty of room and allows for some carving ability, measuring 19-3/4" L X 12" W. The housing is made of unbreakable, cross-linked polyethylene that makes it rustproof and easy to clean. Installed in each slab saw is a 1/3 hp motor to provide plenty of strength for large cuts, delivering a speed of 1,725 rpm. The coolant reservoir is built right into the base of the machine and can hold up to 224 ounces (7 quarts) of water. Simply drain the reservoir with the built-in drain plug, which makes cleanup fast and easy. The splash guard that comes with the machine keeps water off you and on your piece, making it easier for you to work.
This Hi-Tech Diamond 10" slab saw machine comes with TWO different types of 10" saw blades to best-suit your cutting material. The notched diamond saw blade is designed for slabbing large rocks and minerals such as agates, jades and geodes, while the sintered diamond saw blade is designed for cutting large pieces of glass, topaz, quartz and fine agates.

I have nothing but good things to say about this saw. Minimal splash, smooth operation, as quiet as a lapidary saw can be and easy to clean/maintain. I use it in my shop in my basement, very little to no mess..the higher up on the blade the water line, the more spray you’ll have.keep it at 1/8 with a good guard position and you’re golden.
Overall, a good saw! It doesn’t spray too much water and makes pretty clean cuts. At first, it was a little tricky to get the saw blade to line up with the opening in the saw table. One of the saw blades that came with the saw had a few patches of rust on it like it had been sitting in a warehouse for a long time. I also wish it came with a wrench for the bolt you need to switch out the blade. Have only owned the saw for a couple weeks, so I can’t speak to its durability yet.
Great saw, so easy to set up and use. We did purchase different blades as the ones that came with the saw weren’t what we needed for agates, but overall we are very happy with our purchase!
