NEWEST ADDITION TO THE GEMINI SAW LINE

   
Gemini Apollo Saw

This precision saw is made to cut glass, tile, ceramics and stone quickly and easily. The sliding table gives great precision to long, straight cuts in materials up to three inches thick. A perfect saw for fusers as it will allow you cut straight and true in heavy fused or cast glass pieces. It can also be used for creative work such as cutting wine bottles - even lengthwise.

There is a wide variety of blades available for every purpose. Instead of locking you into a "standard" blade, we give you the option of choosing the best blade for your needs.

FEATURES

  • BLADES ARE MOUNTED IN EASY TO CHANGE CARTRIDGES
    Speeds blade changes. Most changes can be made in about a minute or two.
  • SINTERED BLADES ARE LONG LASTING
    Unlike standard plated blades, sintered blades expose more diamonds as they wear. Blades stay sharp right to the very end.
  • WIRE RING SAW CARTRIDGE AND BLADES
    Gives you the precision pattern cutting ability of a Taurus 3 Ring Saw
  • 1/2 HP MOTOR
    High torque motor will go through thick glass, tile and stone
  • SLIDING TABLE TOP WITH RUBBER SURFACE
    Allows precise straight cuts - handy when cutting wine bottles or tiles
  • MAGNETIC MULTI-PURPOSE ANGLES
    Extreme cutting precision, especially for mitered cuts or putting beveled edge on thick glass

BLADE CARTRIDGES FOR THE APOLLO

Ordering Information: Saws are sold WITHOUT Blade Cartridges. Please select from the styles below, based on the materials you expect to be cutting and the types of cutting you will be doing. Popular blades are indicated in RED below


Order the Fine Grit blade for
most glass applications

SINTERED RING BLADE AND CARTRIDGE
Unlike electroplated diamond blades found on ring saws, these sintered blades have the diamonds completely imbedded in the metal of the saw blade. As the blade wears down, new diamonds are exposed. The blade cuts as good as new, right to the end.
6" Diameter will cut materials up to 3" thick.
This blade will cut gentle curves, forward and backwards, as well as accurate straight lines.

Two diamond grits are available:

straight cuts only.

materials up to 3" thick.
Order the Fine Grit blade for

SINTERED RIGID BLADE AND CARTRIDGE
Use this blade for straight cuts only. The extra strength of this rigid blade allows you to apply more pressure for quicker cutting.
The blade on this cartridge has the long life of sintered blades. The diamonds are exposed on the front side of the blade only (the brassy ring on the photo at left). The green ring is a backer plate that adds strength and rigidity for the fastest straight cuts. Will not do curved work.
6" Diameter will cut to 3" depth.
