taurusII - Taurus II - Diamond Coated Ring Saw


Taurus II Ring Saw


Set your imagination free with this saw that will cut any shape for you in glass, slabs of rock, metal or plastic sheets. Make that Tiffany lamp or sun-catcher without all the tedious conventional ways of cutting and grinding.

The secret is in the stainless steel, diamond coated ring blade of the Taurus II. The diamonds are all around the blade, not just on the edge, so that wherever your material touches it - front, back, left or right, it cuts, and it grinds as it cuts, leaving a smooth edge that requires little or no finish grinding. A real time and material saver.

The Taurus II is lightweight but built to last. Tank and grid table are durable plastic. The few moving parts require little maintenance. We've listed the parts that wear the most - belt and grommets.
