Let me fill you in on the interesting task of cutting the small soapstone slab that belongs on the narrow counter to the left of the stove.
Bought a diamond blade at Sears for $16 bucks when we were back east. Seemed challenging to find a 7 inch blade at Home Depot or the other 3 places he went to purchase one back in July. You cannot get a diamond blade for a cordless circular saw – apparently you need “real” electricity rather than battery to support the blade’s cutting power. Whatever, dude. I can’t work the 7 inch saw. Too heavy and the motor is on the left. I will hurt myself if I try. So hubby to the rescue.
Can’t do a straight cut without a guide. Stone too wonky. Attempted to setup the neighbor’s table saw and load our blade onto it until we realized that the table saw needed a 10″ blade. Back to Home Depot. Woops! Those suckers are $80 bucks. I’m nearly ready to bring the slab back to the city to have the professionals cut it. Then calmer thoughts prevailed and we decided a call to the Tool Lending Library was in order. Ty to the rescue! He hooked us up with a clamped guide. We made the attempt this evening and voila!
