Thanks for this tip, I am struggling with how to cut the bricks, did you purchase this? Have you used it yet? Is it worth the cost? Any other tips?

I bought one, as have a large number of other builders here. For the price, it is a great tool. Plenty rugged and works as well as more expensive brand name saw. Much neater than a dry saw and cheaper than renting. If one can find a deal on, or borrow a 14" saw it's probably better, but you can do everything you need to with this saw.

Easy to sell on Craigslist or to another builder when you're done with your oven

Dang,
The sale price used to be $199.00. It's still a good deal at this price. I've had mine for a few years and it's still going

According to the product page ( 10" Tile & Brick Saw - 2.5 HP ), it has a fixed 45 degree miter fixture. I'm almost to the point of needing a saw to cut bricks - how would I use this saw to get the proper angled cuts I need? Am I missing something?

I have cut jigs from a brick or block of wood. Look up hendo's twist and tilt thread (Twist and Tilt) for the approach. I've never even used the 45 that came with

A new set of Harbor Freight coupons came in the Sunday paper today. I'm not sure if the deal is limited to the Seattle area, but it included a coupon for 20% off one item and it didn't seem to indicate that it was for regular price items only. Since the HF website says the price is currently $249.99, this coupon would bring it down to $199.99. I'm glad I was delayed in picking up the saw.

I can confirm that the 20% coupon worked for the saw. They also have a folding stand for the saw for only $40. This is definitely a good deal to find for this type of project!

I second that! The stand is worth every penny, especially when you have to move the saw. BTW, caveman, any chance you're a spelunker?
