Question
Hi Kent,

We own a Taurus II.2 and wonder if using silicone spray on it would be advised?

Thanks for your time

Hi Richard,
    I'm guessing you want the silicone spray to help extend the blade life, or facilitate cutting. I never heard of using silicone for this purpose, and I don't think it could possibly hurt anything on the saw, and maybe it will help, if it does please let me know. The saw blade would be fine if you never used anything but water with it, and Gemini Saw doesn't say anything about using extra lubricants, but it couldn't hurt to try.
      Let me know how it works.
