Default Harbor Frieght Saw

It seems the Harbor Frieght Tile saw is the saw of choice, my question is what type of blade are you using with it to cut brick?

thanks

Rich

I splurged and bought a $79 Bosch diamond blade from Home Depot.
10 In. Segmented Premium Diamond Blade - DB1041C at The Home Depot

Works great, I probably haven't worn more than a few millimeters off of it. Probably overkill if you're only going to use it for this project.

I bought the 10" $30.00 diamond blade. I am starting my third this weekend. But cuts like a charm.

I also bought the $30 blade from harbor freight. I've probably made over 300 cuts and still works as good as new. And it's an uninterupted model (no teeth), so it looks harmless. Been fortunate enough so far as to not find out for sure though.

I also used the 10" Harbor Freight blade. I've got piles of little brick shards lying around so I'm guessing I made about 300 cuts with this one.

Just a note. Make sure to keep the bars/rails that the table rolls on clean of debris. I wasn't paying attention to this and bits of cut brick on the rails cause the table to wobble or tilt a little as you feed your bricks into the saw. It causes inaccuracy in your cuts and the blade may actually bind up in the middle of a brick.
