Gtooving concrete

I want to cut some grooves in concrete to help drain some areas where the concrete man had low spots. These grooves would be about 1/4" deep and wide. I was thinking of using a diamond blade on a SkilSaw, and turning it 45, and running it along a 2x4 fence with bricks to hold the end down. Is there an easier better way?

Yep - use the right blade in an angle grinder. Google "crack chaser diamond blade". You can get them on eBay for ~$30. Rig up a rolling platform with an old roller skate and some band clamps or zip ties to control the depth. Attach a handle if you have a lot of it to do so you're not on your knees in the dust/sludge.

Recently watch some guys making relief cuts in driveways. They used a long steel straight edge, diamond blade and the cric saw had a rolling mount attached.

snap a line and use a wet hot saw you rented. You'll be all week with a skil saw.
