en Question to the Slowbean community. (Stone / rock processing)

Hi community, since a long time I’m pondering about two topics that interest me. Stones / rocks and their industrial processing. If I want to cut rocks or slice stones in small pieces I have to use large machines, the energy consumption of such stone cutting machine is way too high for somebody who would just start to cut / slice rock. So, my question is: Do you have any ideas, thoughts or know about eco-friendly techologies which are energy efficient for cutting rocks into small slices? Every input regarding this topic is welcome.

I believe some would light on the shed eventually. hope it works soon.

Yes, I am certain that somebody will have a cool idea. I do not plan anything regarding the topic above but there are so many stones and rocks lying around in the nature, and there is always a purpose to make something out of them. For artworks, homes or just as deco.

I’ve been thinking about this for the last couple of days. blade saw is the first idea we can have, with motor and battery. they are common and you probably want more than the high efficient batteries and brushless motors.

then high frequency metal strings came to my mind. have anyone tried this before? or is it already on the market?

and I remember a weapon grade water jet nozzle on youtube I watched before. 

what’s your idea in your mind? echo-friendly means even you need to take care of the fine dust from the process from my understanding.

Actually have researched such water jets last night and it seems these devices are beneficial. Just have to  get in touch with a stonemason, to see how they work. Perhaps a blade saw / machine which is connected to batteries that are fueled by a eco-friendly energy source.

google’s content based ADs seems to work somehow. I see “diamond wire loop” AD on this page.

Now they just need to show what the future has to offer. 😉 Anyway, while I was researching the above topic I came across of a designer / inventor who does 3D printing with sand (from deserts) using the power of the sun. His name is Markus Kayser and his “solar sinter” is simply crazy!
