Another question this time related to granite. I am keen to get hold of a piece for sharpening on.
Well while at the HH Restore it store the other day i came across a two pieces of granite that were from the same top which had cracked in half.
I negotiated the one piece down in price but then i had second thoughts and decide no hurry they been there more than 6 month already and i wanted to check with people here first.
So my question is given this top broke in half (it was a long one) if i bought this peace of granite about 2x2 and a bit more on the broken edge, do you think i would have it shatter and crack on me when i use a grinder to cut the jaggered edge straight to be able to use it.?
Have any of you had this experience before?
My concern is buying it and having the whole thing decide to cut loose on me when i trim the edge something like tempered glass does.
Might sound like a stupid question given its rock but hey i aint taking chances this is what made me negotiate its price down.
How would you cut it?
I have a small diamond blade for my hand grinder and this is what i was gonna use along with some water to keep dust down and things clear and cool.
All advice and comments welcome.
