Re: [sccpartners] Black Granite Stairs 20 Jul 2011 09:20 EDT


Check the site called engravacrete. They have a saw called a mongoose. I
own one and it's a great tool. Looks like a little car with a diamond
blade mounted in the middle. Blade can be any width and you can easily
adjust the depth for a precise cut. Snap a chalk line on the tread line up
the front and rear guide arms and you are set. Hope this helps. Although
the purchase of the saw is probably not what you were anticipating it is a
tool that has paid for itself over and over for us. Good luck.
