Since we slab jaspers and agates on a daily basis, a diamond blade dresser to clean and sharpen your blade is an important attachment to your saw. Some agates and jaspers are very dense, or contain metallic particles, and will require sharpening of the blade on each and every slab.
This automatic setup will be ready to use after mounting to the back of your saw vise with either screws or bolts. A 220 grit dresser stick of 1" x 1" x 6" comes with the unit. A very thin slice off of the stick with help keep your blade clean and sharp. When your dresser stick needs to be replaced, purchase a 1" x 2" x 6" dresser stick listed under Lapidary Supplies, and then slab the stick in half to make two 1" x 1" x 6" sticks. They'll be ready for use when needed.
