recon stone... any ideas on not incredibly expensive bits?

Recommended Posts

so... I've got my recon stone split up... ended up finding the diamond jewelers saw pretty time consuming so bought some bigger diamond wheels for the dremel and now my garage looks like a meth lab.  (worse yet I was trying to preserve all my dust and now I look like a meth dealer being careful not to drop/loose any!)

need to do some inlays with this and hoped to do it on the cnc... wondering... will shell bits work?  the diamond wheels cut this pretty easy so I don't think it's all THAT hard... and actual diamond bits are unobtanium expensive.

I know I've read some old threads here with lots of helpful advice regarding recon stone... but no one ever mentions how they cut it (I'm guessing by hand).  

what say you?
