This is a 20" lapidary rock saw that I have been using these last nine months. I have come by this saw and three others as well as some other items that I will be listing this week and about a thousand pounds of different rocks that I have sold or cut up into slabs and then listed on eBay. This saw was made by Ideal Lapidary Machinery Mohave Industries in Kingman, Az., I don't know when it was made. This is about 58" long, 32" wide and 42" high, rough but close measurements. T is no instructions or paper work that comes with this. I can tell you that I have probably cut well over a thousand slabs from rough rock with this saw over the last nine months. All of this equipment and materials come from a single estate auction the I attended when I decided to buy all of the lapidary stuff as the past owner was a past president of the Ne Rock and Gem Society. A lot of his equipment was either hand made or may have been improved on by this man. I don't think that t has been any alterations to this saw. For those of you who have been buying my listings over the last months, it has been obvious that I am not a lapidary person as the majority of my listings have been for UNKNOWN slabs or materials. It has been a good ride but I am winding down from the lapidary items pretty soon. A few more equipment listings and maybe a dozen more listings

I am still trying out two new hips but I will help a little if needed to move this. I would like to say that I would deliver this but I don't have the means at a moments notice, given some time, I think I could muster up enough help and a truck to deliver it in the Omaha area.
