Paver is a construction stone that is set on different surfaces like roads, bridges, etc. Sometimes these pavers need to be cut so that they can be positioned correctly and to remove the damaged part. Cutting a Paver is considered a tedious task if you do not have the right tool.
In this instance, you can use an angle grinder, which is a handheld tool for cutting and polishing different materials. In this post, let us see how you can use an Angle grinder to cut the Paver stone.
Steps in Cutting a Paver
Before beginning the cutting operation, you have to wear the necessary protective gear so you do not injure yourself in the process. Protective gears like goggles, masks, gloves, and helmets safeguard you from the dust and debris left while cutting the Paver. Ear protection is also encouraged as the cutting process will get quite loud.
Get the right angle grinder with the correct disc so you can cut the Paver easily. Angle grinder comes with different specifications so you need to choose yours wisely. If you are cutting deeper, then get a tool with a high wheel size on the grinder.
For cutting smaller slabs, a small wheel in the grinder is enough. For quality cutting, you should always opt for quality discs on your angle grinder. They last longer and work better than most of the cheap discs.
After preparing the required tools, mark in the Paver that you want to cut. You can simply mark using a pen on the Paver. It will give you a good idea of what to cut while you are cutting. After marking the Paver, you should position the Paver in the correct position.
Make sure you position the Paver on a flat surface and off the ground. You can also position the Paver on top of a step with the grinder facing the marked part on the Paver. You can also keep your leg on top of the Paver to comfortably hold it in one position while you are cutting.
This is the part where you actually cut the Paver. Position the grinder over the edge of the marker, turn on the grinder, and start to cut it. You should follow the grinder along the marked line over the Paver, so you get an exact cut. The process is really easy and simple once you do it a few times.
If you are just starting, then it might be better if you practice it on a few damaged Paver before working on the actual one. One thing to note is that you should never force the grinder by pushing it down on the Paver. It may damage the grinder along with the Paver.
Using a grinder to cut or polish a material is an enjoyable task for an experienced person. For beginners, you should take it carefully by wearing the necessary tools before you begin to cut the Paver. I hope this post gave good information on cutting the Paver responsibly and safely.
