wet diamond saw

wet diamond saw

(OP)
Hello everyone
I'm willing to buy a wet diamond saw to cut some carbon fiber and glass fiber composite samples. I'm working on a budget. I came across a company called UKAM (http://www.ukam.com/) that sells such products for affordable prices ( around $2000). However, they are rated as F in the BBB and have some bad reviews. But unfortunately they have what I'm looking for. a lab size wet diamond saw called 6001XP smart cut.

1. Do you have any idea about this company or product
2. do you know other companies that sells similar products but they are reliable?

by the way, a tile saw won't do the job!
Appreciate your prompt response

RE: wet diamond saw

For that price you could buy a used surface grinder or two. They do take more floor space, but they can also grind samples to high precision for thickness and parallelism. With two you can use one as a saw and the other as a grinder. Changing wheels often should be avoided as they should be trued every time one is mounted.

Could you please recommend me a company that sells such stuff ( surface grinder) for the listed price.
I have to emphasize on the fact that I will be cutting composite materials

Appreciate your response
