Let me know how you get a big block in a chop saw. On the flat caps, yes,
you could do it in two cuts, but it would be iffy to get them straight.
Go get a used 10" wet saw with a big tray and a lot of travel. I bought one
about a year ago, and I have been using the heck out of it, now doing work
that I would have never considered before. One is now to do a 400sf
(approx) area in 4 x 8 pavers, 2" thick, having to cut some to make the
pattern, and some just to fit in odd areas. It's a dream to just put it on
there, saw, and it's done. No dust.
A 10" saw is a tool that is used infrequently, but when you do pull it out,
it does it right the first time. I think you could get a used saw for what
any chop saw would cost you, and the chop saw makes dust, which causes
silicosos, a very dangerous human ailment.
Mine cost me $60 at a yard sale. It retails for about $600. It's not new
and pristine, but it works, and I think it's worth what I paid for it.
