Can a torch make a rough cut on a marble slab?
No. you don't cut stone with fire. That is just plain stupid. You cut marble with diamond tipped blades or with water jets.

i dont know i am still tryin to figure this out myself i turn 15 in feb and i wont to see if i can work there
\nYou'll need a special saw with a diamond blade.
have not seen it happen in the thousand year old European buildings, but there is a variety of marble available. Granite on the other hand lasts very well exposed to all eleme…nts (headstones in cemetery for instance)
Of course you can. But you risk cutting into a post-tension cable. That would be very bad, but there is no reason why you cannot physically do it. Just make sure you have anot…her job lined up beforehand, and that you are prepared to live with the consequences if the cable flies out the end of the building and cuts somebody's grandma in half. Or, you can have an imaging company use X-ray or radar to locate and identify sub-surface items. Then you will know what is in the deck you are cutting. Here's one: www.srimaging.com
"the freshest ice cream on Earth." The cups and some other packaging also have "Find Happiness Within."
Okay, I will explain to you that, in the rainfall should had some kind of chemical like alkali, acid, salt, aldehyde, etc. Specially acid will interact with marble which conta…ins calcium carbonate (CaCO3) to make the salt and liberates water vapour. The reason that surface of marble is not uniform as metal, so when the acid penetrates to the marble will make the result with porous coefficient differently. And you can see this very obviously this marbles surface will be rough touch. Of course this is long process not immediately after you fix the marble at the exposed area.
no one knows or cares about the answer of this Question
As quarried, marble has a surface somewhat like sandpaper. But marble takes a very high polish - almost mirror-like in some cases.
It depends on what toppings you put on it and what ice-cream you get. If this wasn't the answer you were looking for, then you should be more specific.
You should , I hope your manager has told you about this before .. If he/she didn't .. then your not asking enough QUESTIONS !! Marble slabs a great company too work for as a …first job .. but it has some fast pacing .. dealing with customers and labour work in the back :/ Pros = MONEEY :$
marble is soft
As it is a marble slab, it could be supposed that the shape is fairly regular. So multiplying length by width will give the square area of the slab. It could be that the squar…e area is not required, and the length and width is needed simply to fit the marble slab into a recess or is to be used as a work-surface , etc. But, either way, a steel tape measure is usually required to measure the marble slab.
Marble is metamorphised limestone and a soft rock, so care is needed to quarry large slabs with a minimum of breakage. The most common modern method of marble quarrying is ben…ch mining, where a huge wall of marble is cut loose from the quarry sides using diamond cutters, saws and hot torches. Dirt is piled up beneath this wall in order to cushion the fall when it comes loose. Once it is free and falls, the slabs are cut from the rock wall using the same types of tools and hoisted from the bottom of the quarry. Broken pieces are often crushed and sold as decorative stone for drives and gardens, while larger slabs are shaped and polished into slabs for building or other uses.
Yes. Its expensive. Most people will cut an inch or so with a saw then jack hammer it out.
