CUTTING BRICKS

Cutting bricks is a hazardous operation. It can be done using a hammer and bolster or a disc cutter.

But before watching the video, Why are there Add's on this page? I need to generate revenue, allowing me to reinvest and improve my site, so a big thanks in advance.


It is recommended that once the dry bond is set and broken bonds/cuts have been established that all the cutting is done in one single operation. This is beneficial for two reasons, all the dust and hazards are over with quickly and secondly the laying process is much smoother, ie no stop/start throughout the work. Once the cuts are complete it is advised that all the cuts are placed close to where they are to be used.
Using a brick saw If you have a lot of bricks to cut, hire a masonry saw for this job. Make sure you ask for full instructions on its use, and always wear face and ear protection while working. Place your thumbs in the palms of your hands while cutting. anougher way is to drill a series of holes that are no more than 1/4" apart. Unless you are fortunate enough to own a hammer drill, you will need to push pretty hard on the drill and even wiggle it around just a bit. Bricks do not like holes drilled into them; you will need to work at this.
