I done me a whole lot of half cuts and full cuts with various diamond blade set-ups. Even bought a wet-saw this year. Still, I'm working to reduce the amount of dusty, noisey saw cuts that I have to make. Blades are expensive. And hiding the saw-cut is fussy sometimes. Glad I have the saws--don't want to use them constantly. Basically, I want to explore every possible way to cut stone that there is. Some of my projects require a lot of cutting.Ok have another question? Are you trying to get special effect ? Why wouldn't you do a half or full cut with a saw then just knock off the saw cut with a chisel or hammer? Don't mind me just trying to figure out what your building.
