Wet cut. Most of there equipment is kept wet, but there is a lot of dried dust on top of most flat spaces, so some does get up in the air.

Use a high quality marine grade grease. The granite will be in
suspension in the water phase and will be least likely to get in
to a grease that resists water.

Probably going to go with shades suggestions of marine grade. Have not finished all cleaning yet. Got side tracked on other saw again. After another 10 hours of adjusting and making test cuts, I have it with in .030” on the diagonal again.

Do you use any coolant (metalworking fluid) etc. in the water or just plain tap water?

Just tap water I believe. This is the granite beam saw I am talking about here . For some reason it started cutting out of square more than the tolerance I had it within 9 months ago.

This pic is the small saw I am working on. I can’t find a pic of the big one that I just worked on.

As my main job. Picked up a second job at my old jobs competition last fall, doing some small handrail projects and other help as needed, (currently a set of stairs),
And then I started my third job at the granite and quartz place that I was working at fixing their equipment over the years for old job. Doing maintenance and upkeep on their machines. Both second and third jobs I come and go as I have time and please , after first job hours and on weekends.

I’m just a gluten for punishment, I know.
