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.

I had a hard time with the blades and hi tech Diamond replaced them! Great company with super customer service!
I wanted to spend some time with the saw and use it with various materials and now can say that I love it. I've been doing lapidary work for 40 years and have been through a lot of machines. Heavy, old clunkers that made a lot of noise with a lot of set up and clean up. I facet, cab and do inlay and work with finer materials so a precision tool is what I wanted, and have gotten. I can cut nice rough material exactly. The different blades work well on their specific materials and the accuracy/kerfing alone will pay for the saw over time. It is quiet, fast and easy to clean. I'll just leave the water in it and refill as needed as the blade can so easily be removed and dried off. I use a flexible plastic cup and bail out the reservoir easily every few days. It wipes clean.
So far it's cut lots of facet grade quartzes, tourmaline, corundum, jadeite, sugilite, some lapis and the blades are running like new. It is made in the USA. I'm stoked!
Took advantage of the recent sale and happy with the results. So far it’s been a great saw for small stones.
A drain hole for water reservoir would be a nice addition, but got a small hand pump to drain the tank.
Glad to have the saw and look forward to years of use.
Very happy with the saw, the red blade is excellent. I do wish I would have purchased the 10 inch first. I will now purchase the 10 inch and the flat lap.
This saw is perfect for me. It is light weight and does a great job. So happy I decided to buy the 6 inch too.
