View Full Version : Got this mammoth tooth...

...Anyone know how I should cut it?
I've seen some tooth slabs somewhere, but don't remember which way the cutting ridges went, can anybody help?

I have only seen it slabbed horizontally, the "grain" in the tooth appears to run from root to crown so the horizontal slice exposes it best.

Thanks George, yeah that's what I thought.
Now all I gotta do is cut the blasted thing:rolleyes: ;)

Dunno, it's big, brown & off white & bloomin' 'eavy:confused:
Sounds like a diamond tile saw job Colin.

Lovely, thanks mate:rolleyes: ;)
No problemo, I wasn't planning on making any knives with it just yet, but wanted the option to if needed:)

Colin, I've got one of those things too. I suspect mine is fully mineralised so it will work more like stone than anything else. Let me know how you get on with yours.

Thanks Roger, but as I recall you got yours first, so how about you do yours & let me know how it went:p :D ;)
