Wenden marble
« on: March 10, 2019, 06:29:37 PM »

This is one of the rocks that we collected during our trip to Quartzite.  With Sandsave, Bluewood, and Goldwood. 
 It was too big to fit in the vice ( about a 150 lb) so I used Sandsaves trick and used a tie down strap.

I took the vice clamp out and used a tie down to get it in the saw than I had to roll it over to cut the other half

That looks like some serious rock wrangling there.   :Worthy:

I like big rocks. I had to wait until my son was over to put it into the saw. I couldn’t lift it by myself
