These 18 inch and 24 inch saws are the best commercial and industrial models on the market.


Each saw is individually constructed with critical attention given all
operating systems and details. Design is based upon the time tested
features of famous Highland Park, Becon Star and Frantom saws, many of
which are still in operation after 30 – 40 years. Contempo combined the
best of these saws with modern improvements, especially in the
operating systems, making the TR-18 and TR-24 saws the best available
for heavy duty industrial use, or for the rockhound and lapidary wanting
to cut large pieces of material.


Standard Features for Both Models


  • Powerglide Hydraulic Feed System pushes rock to blade for steady cutting. Both saws must be used with oil. We recommend Roc-Oil.

  • V-Guide Rail System with heavy cast aluminum vise features quick release pin and positive screw tightening.

  • Multi-Stage Filter and Recirculation System. See above for complete description of this 15 gallon capacity tank system that makes easy work of the process.

  • Arbor Shaft is 1 inch Diameter in a one piece cast aluminum arbor housing with sealed ball bearings.

  • Heavy Duty Tank of 3/16" Steel Plate. Tank has sloped bottom for
    proper drainage of coolant. Heavy steel legs on casters allow moving
    of the saw. Leveling screws on each leg. Steel hood has large
    Plexiglass top window for visibility of saw in operation.
