Just wondering, a buddy of mine who used to work on cabs said he used a jewelers saw for some stones, figured I'd ask here before I spent the money on one.

Not trying to slab it up, just cut out pieces traced on to 1/4 inch or less slabs. Kind of a self taught budget stoner, usually use a diamond cut off wheel on a Dremel to rough a piece out then do the rest with burrs. Figured if a saw would work would save a but of usable stone I could turn into beads instead of dust.

Thanks!
