Gemini Saw - Revolution XT Double-Sided Glass Blade
This is the Revolution XT 10 Inch Glass Blade and this is just what you need. This blade is designed for those of you who want to cut any type of glass chip free. It has a very fine diamond grit so there is virtually no clean up required after the cut.
The "Glass Blade", is for straight cuts and basic curves as tight as 1" radius in glass leaving the smoothest cut of any saw in the industry. (All blades cut all materials well but this is the best one for glass). The Revolution blades are very similar to the solid 10" diameter blades you will find on most high quality wet saws. The difference is that these blades have no center, giving you the ability to not only cut straight lines but also make tight radius cuts. These blades run at a much slower R.P.M. than any tile saw but with far more torque, so they give the user a much higher quality cut with far less chipping and superior blade life.
The double sided Glass Blade has a 10" diameter. It is a sintered diamond blade designed for forward and backward cutting and will do as tight as a 3/8" radius on your curved cuts. With this blade you also get a 1" cube dressing stone just in case you need to true up the blade, but you'll probably never use it unless you get into real hard materials like technical ceramics.
Gemini Part #1056
I bought a Gemini Revolution saw to do a bunch of scroll cuts and curlicues in tiles to accommodate a swirling design of art glass inserts. a week later I needed a new blade and after that the drive belt broke. I got all three from Stone Tooling and they arrived from L.A. to Oakland in three days. When the belt drive broke it was 3:30 on Friday afternoon, but Rey Ortiz expedited the order and got the new belt shipped before closing, the same day.Thanks!
I love this company. The prices are good and the quick shipment is fantastic.
The blade cuts well however the device for preventing the blade from wobbling needs to be more robust. Perhaps spring steel
Good website with quick service and shipping.
