6" Trim saw
Our American-made 6″ trim saw is the perfect saw for trimming-out cabochon preforms in rocks, minerals and glass, or to cleanly trim facet material. This saw includes TWO different types of 6″ saw blades to best-suit your cutting material; one economy silver notched diamond saw blade and one premium, long-lasting red sintered diamond saw blade. Saws are available with or without the saw vise accessory.
The Hi-Tech Diamond 6" trim saw is manufactured with a 5/8" arbor and will accept any 6" saw blade that has a 5/8" arbor. The saw table has a large work area, measuring 15-1/2" L X 9" W. The housing is made of unbreakable, cross-linked polyethylene that makes it rustproof and easy to clean. Installed in each saw is a 1/4 hp, heavy-duty, direct drive permanent magnet motor with sealed ball bearings. The motor is variable speed and can deliver speeds from 800 to 3,400 rpm. The coolant reservoir is built right into the base of the machine and can hold up to 16 ounces of water. The removable saw table that covers the reservoir makes cleanup 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 6" trim saw machine comes with TWO different types of 6" saw blades to best-suit your cutting material. The silver notched diamond saw blade is designed for cutting rocks and minerals such as turquoise, aqua, garnet, corundum, emerald and ruby, while the red sintered diamond saw blade is designed for cutting pieces of glass, topaz, quartz and fine agates.

This machine makes light work of stone cutting and shaping don't delay just get one, you won't regret it ,I haven't
I’m new to using tools and found this easy to use since I am a novice. I am still experimenting and have a lot more to learn but I am enjoying the machine and can’t wait to be more proficient. A huge selling point for me was that it was made in the USA! I also really like the vice. (That was an additional purchase)
The only con I see so far is that there isn’t a drain plug and you have to carry the entire machine out of the garage to empty it . I would have given 5 stars otherwise and I have only had it for a few weeks.
I've been away for a couple of shows and so far I've been able to operate the trim saw 6"
It shows the desire to do things well and pay attention to the smallest detail. I like working with companies like yours, so these are my comments/complaints
Customer service, dispatch time, packaging, instructions very well managed and very complete to understand.
My complaints are that the machine does not have stability, it is limping, I tried to level the screws of the base rubbers but it is not possible for it to be stable, the unevenness is so much that two screws are loose if I wanted to level it. The other thing is that the silicone stops to adjust the tray fall off just looking at them. I have hit them with three strong glues and they still fall off. In addition, I added one in the back because the tray has a lot of movement at the time of cutting.
The other thing that I had to add is a 1mm thick acrylic template with some guide lines, because the tray has a corrugated design that is intended for flat stones that can be laid on it, but when cutting a stone on the edge totally irregular at any slight contact with the tray it becomes tangled and the slightest movement causes the cut to deviate. The smooth acrylic template guides the eye and allows the stone to slide freely.
Everything for now, please let me know the solution to the base rubbers, the ones I have now it is not possible to align them.

Cut the stoning materials well. Does not splash too much. Good design. The volume of the water tank is too big. Easy cleaning
