Gemini Ring Saw FAQ
- Q: Where is the water pump?
A: There is no pump with a ring saw. Because the belt that drives the blade also picks up and delivers water to the cut, there is no need for one.
Q: What is a Ring Saw?
A: A Ring Saw is a unique, patented saw, combining the best qualities of a band saw and radial saw.
Q: What does the Ring Saw cut?
A: The Ring Saw will cut any hard material including stone, granite, marble, glass, shell, non ferrous metals, acrylic, and plexiglass.
Q: How can diamond blades cut hard materials but do not cut skin?
A: Skin bounces off of the diamond's riding over the bumps, but hard materials can not bounce so they get cut.
Q: What is the difference between a Ring Saw and a band saw?
A: Ring Saw's spin in a perfect circle and cut in all directions. Band saws travel in an ellipse, can cut basically forward like a polliwog travels.
Q: What is the difference between a Ring Saw and a reciprocating saw?
A: Ring Saws cut while spinning in a perfect circle, so there is little or no vibration while cutting. Jig saws vibrate cut on the up stroke causing delicate pieces to break and wear out much more quickly than Ring Saws.
Q: Do I have to use water with my Ring Saw?
A: Always use water.
Q: When should I replace my wear parts?
A: The average life of the drive belt is two to three blades.
The ring blades are very similar to the solid blades you will find on most wet saws. The difference is that our blades have no center, giving you the ability to not only cut straight lines but also make tight radius cuts. Because we run our blades at a much slower R.P.M. than the average wet saw but with far more torque, they give the user a much higher quality cut with far less chipping and in some cases superior blade life.
Question & Answers

The blade may jump due to too much pressure being applied while cutting. It is important to use the correct blade for the application as well. If you are cutting through any metal/solder, that may also hinder the performance of the blade.

You will always want a "fine" blade when cutting glass.
Both style of blade can cut a variety of material thicknesses. The rigid blade is ideal for straight cutting while the double-sided blade is ideal for curve cutting and reverse cutting.

I had 2 Taurus 3 ring saws before this one. I was tired of the blade moving around even with the stabilizing arm they added. This blade does not move and the sliding top is excellent for cutting straight lines. You do need to set it in a tray of some sort because the water does overflow the "trench" that goes around the base. Also wish it was easier to fill with water. But the operation of the saw is great and quiet!
This saw is ideal for my intricate cuts in stained glass. The saw is easy to set up and use. This saw is powerful enough for my daily use.
