       The Ginkgo Mineral Society has a workshop located at 4325 Squilchuck Road in Wenatchee. There are several machines for cutting, shaping, and polishing rocks. There is a small fee to use the shop and other miscellaneous charges for some supplies and machines.

General shop fee $2.00 covers use of Genies, trim saws, slant lap, and small slab saw
Large slab saw $2.00 for each cut (the blade is very expensive to replace)
Grit for members $4.00 per pound for tumbling grits
Polish for members $7.00 per pound for tumbling polish

Members are available to provide instructions on the use of these machines on agreed-upon times.
Hopefully the shop will be opened on a more regular basis as we get back to a more "normal" time.

Slab saws are used to
slice rocks into 1/4" thick slabs.
This is a 10-inch slab saw.
This is an 18-inch slab saw
for cutting larger rocks.
