The Saw is working well, having done perhaps 30 slabs from the stones I have. Agate, Fossilised wood & Jasper mainly. It is not too noisy and the splatter from cutting is minimal. You just have to remembers to put the blade cover down when you turn off, otherwise the slowing wheel will spray all over you !
Just need to work out the right grit to remove the saw marks for flat polishing.
