    Picked up some new fire brick for the wood stove. Any idea how to cut it to size? I tried scoring it with a grinder and cut off wheel but it still didn't follow my scoring lines. I scored it pretty deep to.
    Thanks

    They make abrasive cutting wheels for masonry in 4.5” for grinders too.

    Contact a brick mason contractor in your area. He will make short work of it. Pay him with beer.

    I just use a masonry circular blade for any of your saws or grinders.
    Lots available in all sizes.
    I have one for my 14" Milwaukee abrasive chop saw.
    Make sure you use a filter mask and of course eye protection too.
