    Those dry cuts must wear out tools very fast as even a diamond coated blade doesn’t last very long without lubrication.

    ....Silicosis 101....Too true, Drew. These look like homebuilt machines, with no provision for lube or dust extraction. We're having the same problem here with a resurgence of silicosis in fabricators of manufactured stone benchtops. Using routers and diamond saws without precautions...Cheers
