Cutting Biscotto To Size
« on: June 04, 2021, 05:05:37 AM »
Hi all,

I ordered some biscotto saputo stones for my wood fired oven. They should be here next week and im super excited. I need to cut 2 of the stones in order for it to fit into my oven. Just wondering has anyone any experience with cutting it? Whats the best method to avoid cracking?

Wet saw, diamond blade. 
This guy says ya don't need a wet saw, but his lungs must be totally shot by now.

I did it outdoors using and angle grinder and a diamond blade. Both cheap versions from harbor freight. The blade was in the same price range as the angle grinder.

I did it dry because I didn't want to deal with any extra water from getting the biscotto wet. It is soft and cuts easy. But creates a lot of dust. So I did all my cuts outdoors while wearing a mask and eye protection. The biscotto is very porous and cuts easily. You can kind of rough cut it and then grind/shave the edges more precisely.
