  1. Well, you've got mine Randy. You keep hangin' in there and fight like heck. Prayers headed your way.
  2. Even independents can operate like bureaucrats! Still say they just don't "get" that you are just trying to make a living.
  3. Your facility is looking great Jennifer. Happy for you. I can feel you frustration. When we installed a Rotational Molding machine in our business, it required a 10" Gas Main be brought to our building. If a very close friend hadn't been a 40+ year employee and a true "higher-up" at our local gas company, we'd have never gotten it approved. Hate it when bureaucrats don't "get" that you have to make a living!
  4. "On-line reviews..........................paper they are written on" You're a hoot, Thomas.
  5. 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.
  6. 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.
  7. Will do. You've helped me a lot....................................(all kidding aside)
  8. GFI? NAW, I was figuring on a SIW outlet.............................................(stand in water)
  9. Why not........................"worry" is my middle name. (after "overthinking")
  10. 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.
  11. 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.
  12. 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)
  13. Thanks, I didn't realize that. Do you mean like those grinder blades I use on my right-angle grinder...........only designed for concrete?
