I have both, a trim saw and a 6 inch blade for my faceting machine. I usually use the trim saw to get an approximate size cut out of the rough. But I use the 6 inch blade on my machine when I am cutting particularly valuable rough so that I can save some smaller pieces for future projects. In other words when cutting the expensive stuff, I may make the first couple pavilion cuts with my saw blade and then save the chips for future use.
