rubin if you have that saw adapter for the ultra tec and can use it it will work fine but yes i know what you might run into. i picked up a 4″ trim saw made in simi valley calf. and used it for yrs but would recommend looking for an affordable new or used 6″ trim saw to handle most sizes of stones you’ll be dealing with and check ebay for the blade as some of the thin china blades are very affordable/cheap and will do a good job. i bought a 6″ thin metal bonded, not notched, blade for $6 including shipping and works great. i put it on a used 6″ lortone combo cabbing unit that i also put on diamond grinding wheels to use to grind off bad parts of stone. the trim saw on it works great. you might check ebay for a trim saw too. thats where i got the combo unit cheaper than a new saw. mike z. email@example.com
