The Eagle Edger Jr. attachment for the Blue Ripper Jr. rail saw from Omega Diamond, Inc. is now being offered through Braxton-Bragg.

The Eagle Edger Jr. attachment for the Blue Ripper Jr. rail saw from Omega Diamond, Inc. is now being offered through Braxton-Bragg. This innovative tool gives any owner of a Blue Ripper Jr. manufactured after January 2009 the opportunity to have a mini linear edge machine. Indicator marks are scribed at both 45 and at 0 degrees (0 degrees meaning the spindle is perpendicular to the surface of the stone), but the unit is capable of being positioned at any angle between 46 degrees forward and 46 degrees back. The operator will be able to cut a perfect beveled edge, or even a bevel-miter lamination edge. 

Accessories for the Eagle Edger Jr.

With the included 90-degree extension and snail lock adapter, fabricators can grind and polish a virtually flawless edge at 90 degrees for a flat profile. The extension is also capable of going up to 91 degrees for those who prefer to polish their seams. A snail-lock adapter is included, which can be used with the spindle to polish a 45- or 30-degree bevel. Standard 7/8-inch bore router bits can be mounted to the spindle to grind straight profiles without the need for a bearing. The router bit can also be tilted to get edge profiles. Designed for use with a Makita 9564CV or 9565CV right-angle grinder, it also includes a Water Shield and a Replacement Water Manifold for the Blue Ripper Jr..

Omni Cubed’s 2010 model Seam Setter VCM

The 2010 model Seam Setter VCM is Omni Cubed’s newest manual pump seam setter.  The Seam Setter VCM is an innovative “three-in-one” installation tool used for joining seams, leveling seams and stabilizing backsplashes. The product features durable hand-pump vacuum cups, which provide full-contact reliable hold, and if needed, the cups can be re-pumped without losing the remaining vacuum, reports the manufacturer. The two leveling components slide on rails for custom placement on each side of the seam, and feature non-spinning, leveling feet with vinyl caps to prevent scratching of countertop surfaces. The extended rail-ends have soft vinyl caps, which make the tool a suitable solution for backsplash stabilization. Made in the U.S. from long-lasting anodized billet aluminum and stainless steel components, the product offers a reliable and convenient solution to achieve the finest seams between stone pieces, according to Omni Cubed.
