  1. Has anyone ever tried this? I assume you would use a bandsaw.

    I'm pretty sure a bandsaw will work. However, I've never seen anyone with the guts to try it. You can use my bandsaw if you want though. :)

    guts is the right word for sure :) I'd like to see some pics of that. not just the cutting either, the healing and everything too.
     
  4. Ive seen that guy Perry, from Oceans in a box sell Scoly's on Ebay that look like a wedge was cut out of it.
     
  5. I have two, lets try Ian.....want to try today?
    I have a "warpaint one" that we could use as the test coral...if all works out, I think we can try the Bleeding apple scoly I have. If I can prop it where I can control it's size, would be great.

    You're crazy, Craig. But yeah...I would love to find out myself.
     
  7. lol yes i am, but how great to be able to do this, I see no reason why not, except for their cost.

    Interesting experiment.

    Cross your fingers!

    :)
     
  10. I hope so also, thanks for the frags also Ian. Wish I brought that bleeding apple scoly after seeing how clean the bandsaw cut it. Guess that will be for another time.

    No problem about the frags Craig. Haha, if this works well, there will be no need to be nervous fragging anything anymore.
