My first 10" was a Star Diamond Gravity feed slab and trim saw.  A real piece of junk.  The parts were too lightly built which meant a lot of flex and incredible noise.  Smooth cuts were out of the question.  So was the idea of operating the thing indoors.  If that is the one you are looking at, I wouldn't pay more than $50.

It's one of the power feed ones. The same as this one  https://www.worthpoint.com/worthopedia/vintage-star-diamond-ts-10pf-10-186407141

To be honest, when it comes to the cutting of stone, I know nothing. The wife is the rockhound in the family. I'm just retired millwright.
