Hi Allan thanks for clarifying.

So, no front handle.

You hold the brick against the stop and push through the blade letting the saw do the cutting. Is that it.

Let the saw do the cutting, no forcing the brick through, if you think the brick is cutting way too slowly suck it up, or buy a good blade.
A good blade can be had off Ebay for about $90, I bought a Huskvarna branded blade for about that price and it cut twice as quick as the cheapy that came with the saw.

Cutting speed is all down to the amount of diamond in the tungsten matrix that makes up the cutting edge, the more diamonds, all man made of course, the quicker the cut.

Keep your hands on the side of the sliding table out of the line of cut.

All depends on how much you value your fingers I guess?

Allan

so the brick just sits there no hands. except on outside of tray.

What stops the brick from flying off, vibrating, feeling im being a little thick here.

I know the blade rotates forward forcing the brick down onto tray.

Hope i'm getting this. I have used a brick saw before but not with half bricks and Paving are a little larger in size.

As Dave said before, you need a rubber mat.
The brick just sits there by the force of the blade the back stop and the mat, once the blade has made contact the brick really cant go anywhere.
The only direction the brick can go is forwards, and at great speed if the blade grabs.

If the brick grabs the whole motor and blade can lift up ejecting the brick out the back, without hopefully your bits too.

Diamond blades dont apologize on the way through.

Hi All

Have done mods to brick saw tray, Russell, changed from roids to growth hormones. . Will post photos tomorrow.

Has been too hot here in Melbourne so I just prettied tray up, before I begin cutting. Added rubber base I obtained from Clark Rubber, painted it to protect from water.

Allan (brickie in Oz) am leaving handle on, but have decided mucking around with tray that its easier holding the side. Handle is useful for carrying the tray around.

Hi all

I have a question for the thermocouple experts out there.

I have ordered a infrared thermometer that comes with a thermocouple.

What i was wondering is - can stainless steel tubes [small diameter say 5mm] be incorporated into the dome shell in various places eg. top side half way into brick, so that a thermocouple could be inserted to get temperature at various points.

Can any of you see this working [without heat loss] and would it be accurate as obvuiously the tube will have air around it but i was looking at a threaded cap.

Obviously i would need a fixed Thernocouple in the base to read temperature between insulation and floor due to the distance of [position] unless positioned near the outer wall.

Hoping this makes some sense.

Should i post this question elsewhere?

Yes, I use a stainless steel sleeve around mine to protect it. But make sure that the probe does not touch the sleeve.
