My customers use a magnifying glass. Cuts must be perfect. I tried a 4 1/2" wet saw. It was much better than a grinder. They are cheap $150 and the clamping straight edge from lowes is $50. I would...

Looking at the site saw 2. It could cut up to a 5' vanity top. I saw that price for the site saw 1 and was thinking they sure have gone up in price. The site saw 2 is around 6k after tax.
