  1. "On-line reviews..........................paper they are written on" You're a hoot, Thomas.
  2. There's a big difference between the stamping work done on a granite surface vs wood. It's an amazing comparison. Didn't believe it myself until I saw it with my own eyes. So much for leather working. I've got to get back to work on the knife I've been working on. Customer is going to be hollering in the next week or two.
  3. Here's how it turned out.
  4. Nope.............that's not me getting electrocuted ! It's my wife "thinking" I'm going to be electrocuted ! Cut my 12" x 24" piece of granite today............with water. Came out a whole lot smoother than the installers did with my cooktop opening. No chips to speak of. Took a piece of 180 wet/dry carbide sandpaper and gently eased the edges and corners and I've got myself a great work surface to stamp leather for my knife sheaths.
  5. Will do. You've helped me a lot....................................(all kidding aside)
  6. GFI? NAW, I was figuring on a SIW outlet.............................................(stand in water)
  7. Why not........................"worry" is my middle name. (after "overthinking")
  8. Well, the blade doesn't actually say "for Granite", but I'm sure I will be able to make the few cuts I need. Not worried about it...............and DEFINITELY will be cutting with water to saturate the dust.
  9. I went ahead and bought a blade similar to this one at Home Depot. (different brand) I think it will work well for the 3 short cuts I have to make. Problem solved. Thanks for all the input, guys.
  10. Okay, thanks for your input. I'll need to find a second pair of hands unless I set up that siphoning rig shown in that video. I definitely want to keep the dust down. Granite dust in lungs isn't a purdy thing. (I'll be wearing my industrial mask for sure)
  11. Thanks, I didn't realize that. Do you mean like those grinder blades I use on my right-angle grinder...........only designed for concrete?
  12. Oh, I fully understand that............and the reasoning behind it. But thanks for mentioning it.
  13. Thanks, George. I'm confident I can do it. Just need to find an affordable but decent blade to do the job. I'm not about to spend $60 to 70 for a blade to do a job that I can have done for $100. That just doesn't make sense to me.
  14. Jennifer I know you already know this, but that building is REALLY looking good. You're doing a great job on it. (no surprise to me, though)
