Edging your Stone Slabs
One of the last steps in fabricating a piece from Stone (Granite, Marble, Porcelain, or others) when creating a Countertop or Vanity is to create its Profiles, also known as creating its Edges. Depending on the configuration of the Granite Shop, there are different ways to approach this process. In this post, I want to share with you a solution that has worked wonderfully for tons of our customers, which consists of using a Portable Granite Stone Router.
Portable Granite Stone Router
When we first saw this portable Granite Stone Router, we underestimated its capacity of solving so many problems. Being a very simple design, it didn’t look like a competitor of the other imported machines. But we decided to give it a try and started selling it. It was around 2005. We were attracted to it at first but its low price tag, but very soon the Portable Granite Stone Router showed us it was second to none.
Ten years later, we have sold several hundreds of units of the Portable Granite Stone Router and, more amazing is that we have never got a complaint about it and no unit was returned to us since then. This tells a lot about any product. By the way, the customers have been so happy with it that many of the sales of the product came from mouth-to-mouth recommendations.
Another of the advantages of this Portable Granite Stone Router, is, as its name implies, its portability. It is ideal to be used in the Granite Shop but it can be easily taken to a job site when the Edging is needed to be finished there.
At first, this Router was built with a Milwaukee motor, but it evolved and now comes with a powerful Makita one, which has proven to be a nice improvement in the quality and durability of the tool.
NOTE: This is a proudly Made in USA product, one of the reasons which allows having a so competitive price tag
