Re: Cutting Slate
Thomas Zaccone asked about cutting slate.
You can cut pieces that aren't too thick, more than about 1/2 to 1 inch
max on a ceramic-tile saw -- black slate is slow going. Finding one is
the hard part. Home Depot probalby won't let you use theirs except on
tile. You might find a brickyard or brick contractor that will cut the
pieces on a brick saw (same as a tile saw but with with large gullets
in the blade for dust removal and large diamond chips in the cittung
Whenever I wanted to make small pieces from big pieces of slate, I just
got a bunch and whacked with hammer and chisel over a slotted board
underneath. It's imperfect, not all pieces work, it's very natural
looking when you're done.
