Gemini Revolution XT Ring Saw FAQ
Q: What is a Ring Saw?
A: A Ring Saw is a saw designed for cutting glass and tile using a unique and patented design that produces clean and chip free cuts. It is similar to a band saw and radial saw, combining the best aspects of both.
Q: What type of materials does the Ring Saw cut?
A: The Ring Saw can cut a wide variety of materials including stone, marble, granite, tile, plexi-glass, glass, nonferrous metals, and acrylic. It is often used for cutting tile and glass.
Q: How is a Ring Saw different from other types of saws, such a band saw or reciprocating saw?
A: A Ring Saw spins in a perfect circle, producing little or no vibration, and can cut in all directions. A band saw, however, spins in an ellipse, cutting in a forward motion. Reciprocating saws, such as jig saws, move in a push and pull reciprocating motion, rather than a rotating motion. The vibration on the upward stroke causes delicate pieces to be more prone to breakage and to wear out more quickly.
Q: What kind of blade does a Ring Saw use?
A: The Ring Saw blades (with the exception of the 4” solid blade) feature a hollow center, giving the ability to make tight radius cuts as well as straight lines. Different blades are available for specific cutting applications, such as for cutting delicate glass or for aggressive straight cutting. The high quality blade cuts with far less chipping because of the high torque and slower blade RPM.
Q: Where is the water pump, and do I always have to use water?
A: The Ring Saw is self contained with no pump. The saw is designed so the belt that drives the blade also picks up water and delivers to the cut. Water should always be used.
Q: How long do the parts last before needing to be replaced?
A: The drive belt has an average lifespan of two to three blades. The blades often have superior blade life because they spin at a much slower RPM and with more torque than the average wet saw blade.
