    Tested the Prime this days,great machine,have power enough to cut 30mm stone,nice cuts.I have to work out with water,seems not enough or come out in wrong place.
    The problem is I can't move the water,is fixed.
    Another problem need to be sorted is the extension table,I hope come with machine but not.All in I think is good investment. IMG_1611.JPG

    Could someone please explain to me how a small table top wet saw is worth a grand, or is this a wind up? @antonio@antonio?

    I have a Belle rail saw, which is basically a rebranded Battipav, and it does jollys (or mitres) like slicing butter.

    Machine Mart sell the Belle range but I do believe you can buy direct off of them too.

    Mine was £22..... Blade was £12. It works and thats all I need it to do.

    But looking to upgrade to a variable speed Titan. Thats going to set me back a HUUUUUGE £45 from Screwfix. 3000 to 12000 RPM.

    That'll be two grinders for less than £100 with blades and enough change for a chippy tea on friday.

    Is 3000 rpm slow enough for polishing etc?

    Should be, though need to do a bit more research and talking to people. The kit you can get from ATS has the grinder/polisher that does 2200 to 6800.

    For some of their dry pads, it says the optimal is 2000, but will work with anything below 4500. Same for the bullnose profiler. Not sure about the Sait pads though, but can't imagine the 3000 would shred them.

    I'm taking loads of samples home and just playing about with them, seeing what works, what doesn't. I asked about grinder speeds a while back and a lower speed gives you a little more control, so for cutting it might just help me a little with accuracy. So want to give it a go and see how I get on. If it turns out I need a slower speed for polishing (albeit very early days for that at the moment, like running before walking) i've only spent £45 and have a spare grinder if one goes duff. win win :)

    here costs € 849 including VAT and shipping.
    So € 695 net. We must also explain that there are two blades that can be mounted simultaneously, in addition to the blade 115, also mounts the abrasive blade and then is all stainless steel and is raimondi. ;).
    I never would spend that amount for my work is not needed.
    returning to the bigger ones, I would not doubt, raimondi for heavy duty use, if you need a few times a year, a more economical.
    I had RUBI and BATTIPAV, raimondi I saw and just, but it was enough to see to understand.

    My thinking is this:

    It takes a grinder blade - big plus
    It is very very accurate, no blade wobble so very clean cuts.
    It is compact and easy to get around - big plus for me doing 95% domestic work.
    It's powerful - ok not 10m9 powerful but I only want it for porcelain.
    It's built to last as long as I am tiling.
    It has a built in mitre / edging wheel - big plus for me.

    Basically - i love my grinders but dust is a problem.
    The GS60 has much of that functionality but with the advantages of a wet saw.
    It can't be classed as a simple wet saw like my Norton Clipper - it's light years away.
    I've been offered it on a "love it or return it" basis too.

    Downside - 'spensive
