View Full Version : idea for a paver saw?

11-16-2005, 03:56 AM
we recently acquired a nice dewalt 12 inch radial arm miter saw. my question is ,can this be converted to be used as a paver saw, i would think you could get a 12 inch diamond blade for this. im not real sure if i can find one with the right arbor size or not..

You can get wet saws for about $600 and they do a much better job dust free.

If you are going to do pavers on a regular basis get a wet saw.:waving:

What brand of saw can you get for that price? Most of the ones I looked at were in that price range for their dry saws.

I don't know its at the warehouse, I'll check. I did get it at the stonw yard and they had a bunch and regularly offer it for those prices. It is probably a chinese product but it works very well and I have had it for 3 years now.

i bought a 14" cutoff saw ( chop saw) from lowes for $99.00. has worked great for almost a year now. put on a $150.00 and you will get a lot of use from it.
