Cutting Cement Pavers and Brick


I cut about a dozen concrete blocks using a circular saw and a diamond blade. No need to cut all the way through, if you cut about half you can knock the piece off with a small steel sledge hammer easily. Makes a lot of dust, and concrete dust is VERY BAD for your lungs, so use a professional grade dust mask (I use a NIOSH cartridge filter mask) when you cut. Also very loud, use ear protection.

Cutting Cement Pavers and Brick


Just received an anonymouse noise complaint letter for "whistling" or "hooting" too loudly...

...I can't wait to use the noisiest damn tools I can find.
