10" Slab saw
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.
Make sure you choose the right power supply for your machine. The 220 volt models are available only for overseas customers that require 220V - 240V power supply. All 220 volt models are manufactured with this CE rated, Type F plug (see below):

I just got this saw so I'm still playing around with it. I've got 5 other saws, 2 auto feed, 2 manual 10" trim saws and 1 6 inch trim. All of which require oil and I LOVE them...but I don't love the clean up of oil around the bench and on the floor.
Hi-Techs 10" saw can be used with oil OR Water. I chose the water option for easy clean up and for quick cutting. The long term idea is to be able to use this saw for teaching lapidary classes. Something easy to use, light weight, and super easy clean up.
I'm looking forward to using this saw for many years to come.
One thing I would like to see is maybe an upgrade to the top tray. I'd be interested in an aluminum tray if one is ever made. Otherwise, this is a great affordable saw if you are looking to get started in lapidary.
Unit delivered as advertised. Performs well. Rock clamp/sled easy to install and needed to saw parallel slabs. Clamp jaws difficult to position for a firm hold on irregular rocks.
With the clean cuts from this saw I'm able to reap more pendants from each stone. This saves me so much time and money by going through less shaping and smoothing disks to clean up the brutal cuts from my tile saw. With the cost of gemstones what they are , it eliminates waste from chipping and deeper scratching caused from tile saws. The Hi-Tech Diamond blades, especially the thin sintered red one along with the high quality motor have truly been a game changer for my hobby and business. The real Diamond with my purchase along with the high quality products is the absolutely wonderful customer service I've received in the past year. I honestly don't know when I've received better service from a purchase ! If you're considering buying a rock saw, please do yourself a favor and check this saw out.
This is the second 10" I have purchased for classes I teach. Even my novice students are comfortable using it.
It is very strong and durable. Using proper pressure it will not slow down.
The cutting deck has grooves. This makes it very easy to cut straight lines without the vice.
I recommend buying the Vice. I use to vice to cut slices less than 2mm thick
Customer service with this company is superior. I won't mention the team member who answers my questions without her consent.
she gives answers very quickly with detailed answers.
Before you order this you might try asking if they will replace the green blade with another red blade or the thicker black one.
