Thanks V,
A major brain infarction on my part. Without insulation your effort is a waste of your precious time and money. Thank god for the active and informative mines on the forum. Remember, there are more than one way to skin a cat! But what do you do with a skinned cat? Cover it in rosemary and red wine and bake it in your over and offer it to the neighbors that complains of a little smoke, that will bring them around and you will have a devious secret. hehehehhehehheheheheh

You are just reinforcing an old stereotype with that suggestion.

Lol, i hope i dont have to worry about neighbors, i can offer some pizza, im cool with that.

It seems like i should get one of those MK blades, would one blade get me thru 250 bricks? or should i get two blades.

I would, that is pretty cheap by diamond blade standards....plus I come from the 2 is 1 and 1 is 0 school of thought. If something happens to one blade at least you have a spare.

vwiz,
Aren't you using super duty bricks? I'm not sure one or two will get it done but you never know. You get a feel when you start cutting. I went through a bakers dozen on my high duty high alumina bricks.

Hey Russ, no i decided that they were not suitable for me. I got Muddox bricks that are 27% Alumina, i think that would work better for me. I just picked them up this afternoon, ill update my thread.
