  • Seeking advice for cutting limestone stairs

    Hi,

    I am wondering what kind of power tool would help me to cut limestone bedrock. I would like to make both horizontal and vertical cuts so I can create some stairs in a limestone slope. Would really like it if the tool would prove useful in other applications as well. Grinder with special blade?

    Thanks,

    b

      diamond blades, (diamond dust/chips are embedded in the edges of the blades), they make many different kinds and types of blades and in large commercial setting there are even wire saws at one time they have wires that are close to a mile long and a cutting compound is driped on the wire to cut large blocks, do day they have small inserts clipped on the wire/cable),

      but most likely if your really serious about the idea there is a company that makes a chain saw, that has diamond teeth, one could cut deep enought to get step sized slabs,

      note: none of this is cheap,

          Maybe in the US, but looking at his location will lead me to believe that he is not in the USA?
