    We are currently working on 13000 sq ft lockstone job at a horse ranch. Lockstone is going all arounf the barn and inside the barn. The first barn they built about four years ago just has a concrete floor inside and they had 2 horse shoes at each entrance set into the concrete when the floor was being poured.

    Since the new barn has interlock inside that can't be done so i was wondering if there is a router bit of some type that I could buy or rent that would take out the thickness of the shoe in the stone so they could be set in. I have not been able to find anything yet that would work at the local rental places and obviously this is too intricate for a wetsaw or cutoff saw.

    I would just cut your pavers around the 'shoe. Then, fill the deepth with concrete or epoxy and put your 'shoe on top.

    Check your local supplier if they know anyone that does paver engraving. Also you could probably take it to a gravestone engraver. They could probably do it for the right price. Good Luck!

    really no way to make cuts that intricate, i'm not looking to cut around the shoes in need to set them into the stone.

    The gravestone idea is a good thought though. I'm going to have to look into that one. Thanks

    I'd cut around them and do like rexmann says but if you can't the grinder is the way to go.
