What is the best blade for cutting marble, quartzite, or other stones? Are pre-mixed color cartridge adhesives better than mixing by eye? What other tools should be considered? This session will cover the selection process for shop and installation tools and chemicals. Come away with a plan to select the right tool for the job every time.

Learning Objectives:

  • Review the different products available for cutting and finishing natural stone.
  • Learn to compare cost, efficiency, and safety as factors when evaluating tools and machinery.
  • Learn what others consider “must-have” tools and equipment.
  • Come away with a plan to standardize your tools and equipment and evaluate new and emerging tools as they become available.
