Anyone for marbles?

A few days ago went for a ride to marble valley and saw marble being quarried

Today I went to the factory to see what happened to it and to pick up a spare rear sprocket for the Yam

Actually, as you may have guessed, that is a cutting wheel. The marble comes in on trucks and lays in wait

To be butchered

To the left of the guy wielding the water spray is a cutting tool doing its job The marble is cut into sizes various and sent to other departments for finishing. This guys job is to make the once rough marble that was made smooth (on the left above) by the cutter rough again

Back on the bike tomorrow..........
