Cutting Quartz counter


When we remodeled the kitchen last year we installed quartz counters with an under-mounted SS sink. My wife hates it; too small and the seam between the SS and the quartz is hard to keep clean. I want to remove the under mount and install a drop-in SS sink. The opening in the counter will have to be enlarged on all 4 sides. Question is: what is the best tool and method to cut the counter?

For the DIYer, I guess I would use a grinder and a vacuum, to keep the dust down.

Finished it about 2 weeks ago. Used a grinder with a helper on the shop vac. The dust was unbelievable. But it came out great and more importantly, wife is happy.
