KB,

Brickie does bring up good points on being able to accomplish what you want with laying the first few courses some call sailors others stretchers but here is a link from Gianni Focacia pretty much saying the same thing. Somewhere in the forum there was a diagram of soldiers, sailors, stretchers, etc but could not find in my short search.

Yeah, that's the one, especially the good rendition of a bricklayer

Don’t want to bore anyone so I try to make a long story short:
I borrow my Buddy’s Harbor freight 10 “diamond blade saw. I began by a quick setup of the saw, to conquer my fears of cutting my first brick……… boy is it nice……..cuts like butter…love it. I think the dust will be manageable around the pool deck. Thanks for everyone’s concern….. I value your wisdom, keep posting… That saw was a lot louder then I remember. When my Buddy brought to it me, he had said it had been over his neighbor’s for the last two years. I’m sure everyone has a neighbor like my Buddies’. So most of my day was spent getting it in good working order: I don’t have a manual for it ……. I think it needs a bearing or two not sure how to replace them……..any suggestions? Included are some pictures of some suggested maintenance items I discovered…….lubrications is our friend……The cement mixer I borrowed quit on me the last poor on the hearth. There is one thing I do when I borrow something from you: you will always get it back in better in condition than you brought it to me or better……. I hope I can Keep my reputation.

Place the pump in a separate 5 gallon bucket of water that you refill as needed. The brick fines play havoc with the HF pumps. I think Tscar also said to wrap the pump in cheese cloth and place in the bucket as well. By doing this my HFsaw pump lasted my who build.

The saw table should have either a plug or be made in such a way that the water will overflow in one particular place. Put the bucket under that. Terry cloth works well too.
