Subject: [meteorite-list] AD: Buehler Isomet Saw For Sale

I have a used Buehler Isomet Low Speed Saw available for sale (Model
11-1180, Orange Model). This is the industry standard for lab wafering saws
and works well for cutting fragile material with minimum cut loss. It is in
good, used condition and has one minor issue: it needs a new power cord. The
current cord works fine, but only in non-GFI protected outlets (won?t work
with the outlets that have ?test? and ?reset? buttons like the ones in your

The Micrometer arm works great and operates smoothly. It comes with a brand
new unopened Buehler 5? Diamond blade and one lightly used blade. A new
blade alone costs over $300 from Buehler. It is missing the original
weights, which can be purchased direct from Buehler for ~$50. I will include
some homemade weights, which have worked perfect for me. Also included is a
homemade vise/chuck.

You can check eBay and see that these used units typically sell for ~$1000 -
1200. I am asking only $500 for this saw, taking into consideration that you
will probably want to get the power cord replaced. I can?t imagine a new
cord would cost more than $100 installed by an electrician?

I have part numbers and schematics in a printed manual, in case you want to
order these things and/or additional accessories.

I will endeavor to take some pics today. Please email me off-list if

Kind regards,
