David, close but CutNRun..wins…the slab is Sandstone. And it was cut on the Work Centre with a diamond blade mounted in a Makita 7 1/2” circular saw.

just be careful of the dust of this kind of cutting. if you did not wet cut it, the dust is very very dangerous and thin and can produce permanent damage to the lungs very fast.

We wet cut and only a small cross cut at that.. Just to show the capabilities. Worked a treat.
