How to cut opals with a trim saw 101

Hey everyone! Hope you are doing well. I shot a short video showing how I cut opal doublets with a lapidary trim saw. Pay attention to the time it takes for the saw to cut the stone. One of the biggest problems I see when people start out cutting stones in the lapidary field is that they put too much pressure on the stone when pushing it into the saw blade.

I will be doing a video later on how to create a cabochon after this timing process.

I am using a Hi-Tech 6″ trim saw. Here is my affiliate link to the saw on amazon. By following this link you will help me create more how-to videos like this one. A very small percentage of the sales will go toward supporting me and the channel at no extra cost to you. Thank you for the support. 🙂

If you have any questions just let me know and I will do my best to get back to you.

All the best,

Michael Seiler
