I used a non-segmented blade for my entire build, no problem

That's good to know before I start cutting with it.

If i get results like yours I will be a happy man.

Looks like I could have to abandon the build for a while once again to landscape my driveway and garden

At least I get to play with a digger and dumper for a couple of weeks

It might not be ideal for the job but at a saving of 87.5% I will give the cheap one a shot.
You must have looked in the wrong places for a blade?

Nice toys!

i used to be a landscape gardener, and always look back fondly to that time.

What brick saw do you have?

Brickie, I looked at a LOT of places for a blade.

I have accounts at a few builders merchants and tool suppliers.

I also tried fleabay and the online suppliers.

250 mm with a 1 inch bore is difficult to find at a lot of places here.

It is half the price for me to get a segmented blade sent from the US even with the postage and import duty included.

It's just one of those things. Tools are cheaper in the US, camping equipment is cheaper in OZ, Beer is cheaper in Vietnam and everything is more expensive in the UK

Andis,
I'd like to know where you purchased your blade. I'm in the market for the same size but I'll be using it for dry cutting in a mitre saw.
If you think things are expensive in the UK, you should see how much worse things are in Norway

I love chimney pots...that one is a real beauty. One of my best buddies lives in Leichester, about 67 miles from you. He is a professional mason, and we did a ton of work together awhile back, when he used to come over to the states.

I'll see if I can get in touch with him to see if he has a local source for diamond blades.

Bookemdanno - The saw is a SMG. No idea where it was made or how old it is but my plumber lent me it for nothing, and it works, so I wasn't going to say no.

Steellearning - my blade came from screwfix which is a nationwide tool supplier that has an online shop. If you let me know the type of blade you want I will see what is available here and post it to you if it helps.

Stonecutter - Thanks. I would be interested to know if there is somewhere cheaper that I have missed.

So after a long break I think it's time to get this oven finished.
It's become an in joke for friends to ask how the pizza tastes :-)
This is the state of play today. Tomorrow my arse gets back in gear.

Hook in and go hard andis. You are well on the way and you will be able to feed the knockers a bit of crow with the pizza before long.

Be interested to follow you finishing the oven.
