  • Wet-Saw Conversion

    I just cut my first bricks yesterday. The brickyard sold me an 8 inch "wet or dry" diamond blade, and I was told it would work fine in my mitre saw. Well it worked "fine", I guess, up to 17 bricks, and then it was shot. At that rate, it would take $624.88 in blades to build my oven! I finished up the bricks for my internal floor with an abrasive wheel on my metal chop saw. It cut great, but it was (no surprise) really, really dusty.

    I've been searching the forum, and I have stumbled across a couple of brief glimpses and mentions about what appears to be the reconfiguration of a 14" metal chop saw into a wet diamond saw. It looks like a drip-irrigation emitter is let into the top of the blade shield and hooked up to a garden hose.
    Can anyone give me any more insight, advice or tips about this? Is it okay to run a diamond blade on a chop saw (i.e. acceptable RPMs, etc.)?

    The Harbor Freight saw is $300. H-D has a nice Rigid saw "on sale" for $489. I'm guessing I could convert a cheap-o Harbor Freight chop saw to water cooling so as not to ruin my Milwaukee chop saw. I could also rig up a jig to bevel cut the sides, I'm thinking.

    Never mind. I bought a wet saw. In case anyone else is trying to figure out a way to save a few bucks, don't. Get a wet saw. Like me, you'll be glad you did.

      Besides, eight inches is way too shallow for fire bricks. What was the bite on that thing? Two inches?

        Actually, I mispoke. It was a 10" blade that I used on the mitre saw. It could cut a brick, but only on a shallow diagonal and only on the face, not the edge. Totally worthless. Oh well, live and learn.
