concrete lap siding


I am building a play house for my daughter and I ended up buying concrete lap siding. I have never dealt with this stuff. I bought a 5 tooth blade for my skill saw. I was wondering what would happen if I used an old finishing blade on my chop saw. Would it work. I don't care about the blade I just don't want to kill myself.

Thanks I already had the instructions I was looking at real world stuff. I tried it and it works. You can see the blade glow but it cuts so much better than the 5 tooth blade. Don't know how long it will last but I am a DIY guy and don't need to worry about some things I use to have to deal with when I was doing the construction thing. I know, I know I am going to hear about rules, safety, but in my experience their is the right way with a little gray in the middle. I have seen your posts in the past and they are really great and very very informative. It seems to me you must be a great contractor. I would recommend you to anyone.
