I had to temporarily modify the blade guard, which normally keeps the water from flying. If you remove it to allow the brick to pass, water sprays everywhere; so I remounted the guard on a flange that would allow the brick to fit. It kept most of the water in place.

If you want to do precise cuts, the other type would be better; but for me , this worked fine. If I were doing more than one oven, I would definitely invest in another saw, but for a one-off project, it was all I needed.
Hi there

When you say you removed the blade guard, did you mean that you also removed the mounting bracket to which the guard is fitted? I wouldn't mind seeing how you mounted a flange that still allows the brick to pass - having trouble envisaging a solution, as I am having to do four cuts to get a brick in half right now.

Thanks

I don't know if I have any pictures of the mount... I'll look through my files and get back to you. I can say that yes, I did remove the mounting bracket and replaced it with one I had rigged which was long enough to reach over the height of a brick. I used a piece of thin sheet steel about 3/4" wide and 4" long, with holes drilled at each end for the mounting screws. It was crude but simple and effective.
