4" OR 6" DIAMOND trim saw

Anyone have a favorite diamond trim saw to cut murrini with mine just thew a barring shaft and chord all in the same night. I found this one that looked pretty tight. LIL TRIMMER TRIM SAW LAPCRAFT

Would a diamond blade tile saw work? If so check Craig's List for used items.

Usually the kerf, on a tile saw is much wider than what is normally used for glass and jewelry. Who cares if you waste 1/4" of tile?

I agree with Roy about the kerf on a tile saw. This is the trim saw I use, although I haven't used it for murrini, I think it would work well:

Or one could purchase a blade for around $45 to adapt to an existing saw. Noticed some 4 and 6 inch diamond blades at .014 with a 1/2 or 5/8 arbor as a possibility.

Yes, yes it would! The tile saw that is. Trim saw would take a long time. I've seen all sorts of things cut with tile saws. Just do your lungs a favor and wear a respirator!

I found a little 4"trim saw that looks awesome. To cut murinni you need high speed and a thin blade.

I use a tile saw with a lapidary blade in it to cut murrini. The threading on some saw arbors is set such that you can't tighten the lock nut on a thin blade. You can get around this by investing a few $ in blade stabilizers for thin kerf blades for table saws. You'll lose some of the cutting depth which you'll need for bigger canes so 6" blade would be a minimum size.
