You must be taking this seriously. The Diamond Pacific TR-36 slab saw is designed for commercial and industrial lapidary use, providing anyone wanting to cut large pieces of rock with a heavy duty reliable rock saw.
Built to handle large and heavy pieces of rock, these saws are also widely used in industry for other applications like cutting concrete and asphalt specimens for testing in construction projects, slicing core samples in the oil industry, geological specimens, etc. The standard TR-Series slab saws are designed for lapidary use. For other industrial or commercial uses modifications must be made to the saws.
