It’s been a while between trips. Life gets in the way and does its thing. I’ve had a few trips of my own along the way; read a few books and met a few mates.
I scored a tile saw at the auction for 20 bucks.
Then I sat there looking at it for a couple of months.
Knowing I’d seen someone else use something similar, after all it’s just a diamond blade, and the principle is all the same, why not just give it a try, you’ve got plenty of rocks now that you can waste.
So I gave it a taste, got together some of my average Lune River agate, switched on old mate, and after what I turned out that day, my life will never be the same.
I’m getting around to visiting the local Lapidary club to say hi but I’m always a bit awkward and shy about going inside
Just looking at working out the best way to do a bit of polishing next
Just wanted to share a few with you.
Cheers to Leon Lion, Rookie Rockhounding and Kevin Nix on YouTube for guidance, inspiration, ideas and confidence to give it a go.
Hopefully I’ll see some of you again on a field trip soon.
