Newbie setting up a classroom
« on: April 24, 2016, 11:44:43 AM »
Hello, I'm pleased to be able to join this forum! I have been tasked with setting up the lapidary portion of a jewelry school classroom. I know very little about the subject, so it is wonderful to be able to ask questions of knowledgable people.

If you have any questions give me a call. I'm involved with the jewelry and lapidary classrooms at our local junior college. About a year and a half ago our club assisted financially and with equipment when they moved the jewelry and lapidary classrooms to a new  campus. Our club has financed the maintenance and repair of the equipment and bought most of the equipment for the classrooms for the last 35+ years. The move to the new classrooms involved considerable downsizing and consolidating of the equipment.

As to a slab saw or trim saw, I would suggest looking at the new Highland Park company. I saw these saws at the Franklin show and was very impressed with the quality.  As to the old timer companies, you just cannot beat the service of Covington.
