    Hey paul,<p>I guess your caps don't already have a bevel on the edge, or is the bevel not good enough. I use a product from Grinnel, here in NJ, and they have a good bevel already.<p>One thing though, the caps are double faced (rough/beveled on both faces) and are a problem sometime when starting pavers at the back face of them. left with a 1/4 to almost a 1/2 gap sometimes between paver and cap. Sometimes I just chisel off any of the big chunks, but maybe the grinder would be good for this. thanks<p>steveair

    Steveair, Some block that we get only has a bevel on one side (face) others have a bevel on both sides but don't have a bevel on the outside edges.<br>As far as cutting brick with a hand saw we do it it goes much faster and the edge is much better because it is more even (saw cuts two bricks at one time) so edges are straighter.<p><p>----------<br>paul<br>
