Gemini Apollo Ring Saw - Gemini Saws

The Gemini Apollo Ring Saw is both a ring saw and tile saw in one. It is capable of precision cutting through materials 3 inches thick and can cut tile up to 16” in diagonal. It slices through a wide variety of materials including natural & engineered stone, marble, ceramic tile, glass, non-ferrous metals, Plexiglass, and other materials.

The powerful Apollo Ring Saw motor delivers 10 times more power, or torque, than traditional tile saws. Included are 2 magnetic angle brackets and sliding tray that ensures you the get the most accurate cut possible every time.



Versatile Blade Cartridge Assemblies

The Gemini Apollo Ring Saw features patented Removable Blade Cartridge Assemblies that make swapping blades out simple and easy. The ring saw is capable of cutting straight, radius, and curved lines. With blades available specifically for straight cuts, curve cuts, and omni-directional cuts with extreme detail, there's a blade that will produce the exact cuts needed for your next project.

The single-sided blade (Rigid Blade Cartridge Assembly) will do only straight or forward cuts while the double-sided blade (Sintered Blade Cartridge Assembly) will do forward, backward, and curve cuts. The omni-directional wire blades (Wire Blade Cartridge Assembly) feature a complete, 360 degree diamond coating that allows for cutting in any direction. Due to the specific cutting abilities of the ring saw blades, the Blade Cartridge Assemblies are sold separately.

Each blade type must be used with the correct and corresponding Cartridge Assembly. Single-sided blades must be used with Rigid Cartridge Assembly, double-sided blades must be used with Sintered Cartridge Assembly, and omni-directional / wire blades must be used with Wire Blade Cartridge Assembly.

Gemini Ring Saw FAQ


    Q: What is a Ring Saw?

    A Ring Saw is a saw designed for cutting glass and tile using a unique and patented design that produces clean and chip free cuts. It is similar to a band saw and radial saw, combining the best aspects of both.


    Q: What type of materials does the Ring Saw cut?

    The Ring Saw can cut a wide variety of materials including stone, marble, granite, tile, plexi-glass, glass, nonferrous metals, and acrylic. It is often used for cutting tile and glass.


    Q: How is a Ring Saw different from other types of saws, such a band saw or reciprocating saw?

    A Ring Saw spins in a perfect circle, producing little or no vibration, and can cut in all directions. A band saw, however, spins in an ellipse, cutting in a forward motion. Reciprocating saws, such as jig saws, move in a push and pull reciprocating motion, rather than a rotating motion. The vibration on the upward stroke causes delicate pieces to be more prone to breakage and to wear out more quickly.


    Q: What kind of blade does a Gemini Apollo Ring Saw use?

    The Ring Saw blades (with the exception of the 4” solid blade) feature a hollow center, giving the ability to make tight radius cuts as well as straight lines. Different blades are available for specific cutting applications, such as for cutting delicate glass or for aggressive straight cutting. The high quality blade cuts with far less chipping because of the high torque and slower blade RPM.


    Q: Where is the water pump, and do I always have to use water?

    The Ring Saw is self contained with no pump. The saw is designed so the belt that drives the blade also picks up water and delivers to the cut. Water should always be used.


    Q: How long do the parts last before needing to be replaced?

    The drive belt has an average lifespan of two to three blades. The blades often have superior blade life because they spin at a much slower RPM and with more torque than the average wet saw blade.

Gemini Apollo Ring Saw for use in glass art studio December 14, 2015
Reviewer: Shawn Earle from Eugene , OR United States  
I bought the Apollo for cutting borosilicate glass slabs,
slicing millefiori and cutting slits for functional pieces . It is a strong yet gentle saw capable of doing all the tasks I had hoped.
  Moving up from a c40 bandsaw I am pleased with the fact that the apollo can utilize a rigid blade like a trim saw, an omnidirectional wire blade and a super thin slicer blade.
This makes it the most versatile saw on the market.the super slicer kit is a great upgrade.
The saw spits a little water toward the user but a plexiglass shield alleviated that, which was my only real concern upon testing the unit. It is in daily use and has surpassed the performance and adaptability of any other saw in the shop. Blades change easily and the power draw is minimal.                                 Bonanza has been a great company to work with and I would highly recommend buying an Apollo through them as they have the best price and great customer service.
