Carving Marble on Mechmate

Hi,
I am watching excellent work done with Mechmate on Aluminum and Wood/MDF.. Has anybody tried carving marble?

I recently did carving marble on MDF CNC machine and i think this surely can be done with Mechmate.

here is the brief video i am currently doing....

Marble is relatively soft material, so it is possible.
One machine in the Caribbean islands uses a standard A/C motor as the spindle for specifically this use. I have not seen any photo's of results - but know that a duty purpose machine has been built to date.

@KenC:
I am using ordinary wood router for carving the Marble.

@Smreish:
Yes i think Marble is much softer..however Granite is really difficult to carve atleast i think not possible with my machine. It will be pleasure for me to see some marble carving here at this forum..

I would be interested to know what is the long term effect of your router. specifically will marble carving shorten your router bearing life.

Khalid, it is produced in Caesarea, Israel. I suspect that Pakistan is not a big customer.

@Hennie
Thanks for information ..I will search on the internet..
@Gerald:
We have large reserves of different types of marbles and granite in Pakistan. You are right we do not import marble from outside.
