Think I'm gonna swing by Harbor Freight tomorrow and pick up one of those angle grinders. I have some big chunks of Noreena here I need to cut down to size and I think finding a good slab saw is going to take a while unless I buy new. Thanks for this tutorial!

Had some fun this weekend with good results! Got the chunk of Noreena jasper broken down into sizes my lowly 8" saw can handle.

i need to get an angle grinder and do this to my Teanaway jasper (aka Teanaway jade) boulder.

Huge boulder sitting in my back yard wanting to be "NICELY" made into smaller chunks rather than a sledge hammer and ending up with awkward shaped chunks.
