How to cut a limestone block

Hello members,

 

I am planning to lay a limestone block garden edge. I need to cut the limestone block for the end of the edge. What tools do you think could be most convenitent  to cut the limestone blocks? Convenient means it is easy to get or hire or cheap to own this tool.

 

Thanks,

Hi @johnw2016

 

@TerryN is a bricklayer so might have some knowledge and experience he could share with you about cutting limestone.

 

Thanks for your patience, 

 

Jason

Re: How to cut a limestone block

G/day Jason,I can't remember ever having to cut limestone but I know it is a fairly soft material and wouldn't present much of a problem to our bricksaw but that option is probably not available to John, so an angle grinder with a diamond blade would be best for him I suppose, if he has any contacts in the building industry etc.Sorry I'm not much help on this one.Regards Terry.
