You might try to first spritz down the areas where water would be trapped
with some alcohol. Don't soak it down, but but just wet the areas. As
alcohol has an affinity to absorb water, it will help wash some of the
water out of hiding. I would then place a 25watt bulb in the tub of the
saw and just crack the lid enough to get some circulation. No sparks
while the tub is full of alcohol fumes though. The heat from the bulb will
help dry out the remaining water. I would do this prior to a spray down
with the oil as the oil can trap the water in place and let it do more
damage. Wait till the next day to oil things down.

Food Grade Oils

Carey

Yep, the food grade oil seems to be the best oil to use overall.....It is
what Knotts Berry Farm uses to cut rocks amongst the public masses, i suppose
that says a little bit, as to it's... safer than most oils
appeal......Actually, it probably is the least toxic of petrol oils, as i
personally believe no free flowing petroleum product is 100%, absolutely
safe...... Food grade oil is still a petrochemical, just more highly refined
than other petrol oils and thus its low, to no oil smell...

And by the way, some everyday products contain chemicals than bind together
with smelly fumes, so as to purposely hide the smell of the product. The
product actually still has the fume chemicals, they are just hidden / masked
by another chemical...
I don't think petrol oils do this magic yet, but some "no scent" type of
cleaning products perform the tricky practice

If i was ever to consider using oil in a saw, it would either be an
agriculturally grown oil, like Jojoba oil or cottonseed oil, etc., ......or
it would be one of the best quality food grade petrol oils i could find, like
the brand name called "rock oil"...usually made by Chevron ...Just get a
highly refined oil in the right Viscosity....Sorry don't know the right
Viscosity

In conclusion, I have been told to never breathe any type of petroleum based
products and or any type of oil mists, whether the oil is petrol or even
agricultural !

Thanks for you testimony on food grade oil and it's performance with an 18*
saw, upon hard rock materials... I have heard that the Raytech Green Blazer
is a good blade..

Appreciate : )

From: "michael lauer" <lakeout@charter.net>

Hi,
Well I tried to load DATAVUE on my computer and have some problems with part
of its functionality.
I think I may be missing some files. The following files show 1k size where
other similar files maybe 30-40k.
Files in question:

Gasc0101.sto
Gascwmf.sto
Gasc2799.sto
Gasc0926.sto
Gasc0208.sto
gaupdate.sto

Maybe they were left off the update?

Any help would be appreciated.
Thanks
Mike

Hi Thurmond,

With regard to Tom Pyles request for a radiant Cut Diagram---->

Jeff Gram's site:

Click on Addition #5
Click on Radiant Antique

Further may look at Emerald Cut Barions in other faceting design books,

and if not already done, to read Basil Watermeyer's (The who's your
grand-daddy of Barions) book " Diamond Cutting=94 [ I'm not sure which

edition is current]..

Hi Doug,

I'm afraid I can't help with the make of your machine. However, I would love to know what a
Facet Finder Mirror is and how it's used. I ran a search Google and found only one
reference to it on a discussion list. Anything that would let me set up again after popping off a
dop would be very helpful.

exotic colors... (couldn't resist!) so, I once again have much too much

COMPETITIONS:

For All National and International Masters, Past-Masters and
World-Class Cutters:

This post is simply a reminder that in 2003 the USFG will host its
first National and International Faceting Competition. It is called
the North American Faceting Challenge -- 'NAFC.' Since the designs
and rules were first published in the 2001 September Issue of the
USFG's Newsletter, and since they have not been published since 2001,
some of you, who are most capable - skill-wise, may not
know about the competition, and some of you may have forgotten. The
"NAFC" is an OPEN Competition. Please note: The designs and rules
can be downloaded at <http://www.usfacetersguild.org/events.shtml>.
The closing date is June 20th, 2003; the amount of time between the
present date and June 20th, 2003 should be enough for all Master
cutters to cut the two required designs -- Fred Van Sant's "Four
Star," and Charles Covill's "Wind Wheel No. 2." If further
information is needed, please contact me at <clmoon@pacbell.net>.
