Coral bandsaw...

Recommended Posts

Anyone in the Vancouver area have a coral bandsaw?

 

Looking to cut up a decent size rock with zoas on it.

 

Drinks are on me if you do... Lmk

TIA

Right, we should go up on one some day maybe! I've been thinking of buying one myself, for all these harder to frag stony corals

That's a possibility for sure! For the time being, I'll probably just go to OIAB.

I've actually used a chisel and hammer to break up rocks with success, but some are easier than others and you can't decide exactly where it will break.

Im a big fan of Dremel with diamond cutting wheel for massive colony types. You can cut surprisingly small and neat frags with this, and a screwdriver to pop off the frag once cut. After making a lot of favia and acan frags in this way I have no urge to use a bandsaw. And this is waaaay cheaper...

I've also been successful with a chisel/flathead screwdriver with hammer but like you mentioned, it all depends on the rock on where it will break.

I hear ya on it being cheaper, for sure and great for cutting around acans/favias and such but I have a rock about 14" long 5" wide and about 6" tall. I need something to cut big chunks and that's where, I think, a bandsaw would come in handy. Good advice tho on the dremel...
