fence, concrete removal

Wouldn’t you know it – a piece of concrete is exactly the same place as a future fence post!  I bought a blade for cutting concrete ($55, Rona) and, with Floyd pouring water, cut it in line with the rest of the concrete.  This was my first time cutting concrete.

It wasn’t bad, but I now know to cut full-depth rather than just an inch deep at a time.  Why?  Cutting only an inch deep creates enormous heat on just the outer 1 inch of the blade causing warping.  Cutting at full-dept, heat is evenly distributed throughout the blade.
