Cabking does not allow anyone to sell for less than that price.
The only thing you can get is some free material from whichever affiliate you buy it through.

I have used both and the wheels on the genie are better than the wheels on the cabking but they are both great machines.

Good luck with your purchase!

Just use lots of water when you are grinding or cutting, breathing and eye protection might be a good idea also to minimize the risk.

You can put brass bushings in the carriage to remove the slop in the carriage.
The thing that wears out the most on these saws is the split nut. You can cut a nut in half and weld it on to the split nut assembly to fix that issue.

You can still buy parts for this saw, the grandkids still have all the parts and if you can get ahold of them you can get new parts if you want to completely rebuild it.

I would guess Burro Creek on that one, very indicative of the Burro Creek breccia.

Spend a few days at Challis, you will have a great time!

I am in Gooding, it is a little out of the way but I got lots of rocks.

Hey Bill,
I dont think the campground will burn  since it is in the greenery area next to the creek, but I hear the area all around it is burned now. Should be some new finds after the next rain!

My wife said she can see the glow from our house 130 miles away.
I picked a good week to be in Utah.

Silicon carbide wheels need to be run for a few minutes after you turn off the water supply to drain all the water out of them, if you don't then the water settles in the bottom and makes them out of balance and they can grenade on you causing serious harm.

If they are really out of round you can dress them with a dressing wheel that knocks off the high spots, you can get a dressing wheel at most parts stores that carry SC wheels.

Good luck............Tony

I got a red blade with my 30" saw that never did cut good, I replaced it with a 303P and the saw ran fine, you might have gotten one out of a bad batch.

Does the arbor stop also or is the arbor spinning and the blade stops?

Wonderstone, most likely from Nevada but there is some from Montana also.
