Didn't see this one in this ID section, so thought I'd add it. I think this stuff is a bit soft to take a good shine (haven't tried). One theory for ocean jasper is that it formed as an orbicular rhyolite that became completely silicified. The patterns would seem to match at least. -Don
nowyo: Yeah, I do. Got it home tonight. It was in the cellar of a farmhouse. Had to mostly disassemble it to get it through the door and up the stairs. The things we do for fun. I'll put it back together tomorrow night. Bet it hasn't been used in 30 yrs.

Shotgunner: I did see a 4 foot oil saw recently. Same dude has a 12 foot cable saw....

wampidy: It ain't a big rock saw till you measure blade cost in thousands could be another way to put it. I can not imagine the cost of a 3 to 4 foot blade. We are talking a circumference of over 9 and 12 feet. That is a whole pile of diamonds.

Shotgunner: 48" x 0.257" segmented blade = $2700, cutting with biodiesel lasts years - as I am told

Shotgunner: Awesome Mike. Glad yours was good. Windy here and could not keep the fire going right. Mine was weaksauce.

kk: Scott if we talking about BBQ, the easiest starter regardless to wind-conditions: tissue with a little cooking-oil! Never leave home without it.
