Stone Cutting

Post  rsmsan on Sat Nov 03, 2012 2:11 am

Hi, all. I decided to post a topic here b/c I couldn't find a single place on the Internet that actually gave instructions on how to cut a stone. What tools are used generally? Is it usually done by hand or machine?
Thanks
Richard

cto cut a stone

Post  stonener on Sun Nov 04, 2012 12:33 am

Hello Richard,
I've heard of and seen a drag saw used,
Large diamond blade is drug back and forth by a machine,
till it cuts stone, it's first clapped down inside,
and covered by the large metal top of the saw.
heavy oil is used, so pores stones don't do as well... Basketball

Best to ask expert try susekiken@sbcglobal.net

HI Rsmsan

Some years ago, I wanted to use some cut stones for bonsai ( root ower rock ), so I went to the small local headstonemaker...He used a machine attached to a table for the bigger stone ( about 2.5 kg ) and a handtool for the small ( 1 kg )....It all went nice and easy....oil was not used, only water.

Kind regards Yvonne

Stone power - saw

Most of Suiseki stones are very hard so it is very difficult to use small machine to cut them. You should bring your stone to the stone sawmill.
This is the photo of a stone power- saw :

Hello.
Results can be impressive, however;
by cutting, a stone is transformed into a fixed object.
The hand is shocked because there is no Wabi Sabi feel to it.
Free evocation is invalidated.

Hello RICHARD ,
and all Friends ,
In the past few years , I ' ve done some cut stone successfully ...
But now ,
I feel that : They are not interesting to me as the stone not cutting , especially Suiseki - Stone .
Example the following :
1 . a cut stone : describes MOUNTAINS

2 . a stone not cutting : describes PLATEAU ( _ Is this a SUISEKI - STONE ? )

Thanks for your share experience .
Hưng - Trần .
