Well, dear wife wants a retaining wall for new garden area.
So, using some of those mortarless blocks...here's the Web site:
I am building it. However, I need to cut some wierd angles. In the
past I have always used my handy dandy 7-1/4 inch circular saw and
some "fiber-type" masonry blades at $2.50 a piece from my local
hardware store to cut the things.
However, it has been about 10 years since my last foray. Am I getting
older, or did I forget....it's hard work to cut these things and I am
going through about 1 blade for every 2 blocks....
I poked about the Web and saw a few Hitachi blades, "diamond"
advertised for $30 to $70 ....and a few other brands for up to $380.
Now, I need to cut a number of these, I haven't quite figured out the
total, but a number of them on wierd angles and just a number of them
in half to meet her "highness's specs.
I am not expecting to cut them totally, just enough to split. I don't
want to rent a cutter, because I have no easy way to get it here and
they want $50 to deliver, plus the $66 rental charge for the day....
Anyway, would one of those steel Hitachi blades work better than the
fiber ones I struggled with today???
