    Cool tips, thanks. I would have done a lot of it intuitively but it's great to get confirmation. Whenever I drill it, I usually glue it between spacer material, but wood sounds actually better. What about masonry drills? Will they work? I tried a few cheap ones with good success on reconstituted stone and was wondering about getting one or two better ones. Never thought a band saw would work on the material. But for now I'd rather let Randy cut it for me before I invest in more blades or an angle grinder And I clearly don't use CA glue enough - I hate the stuff because I constantly glue things together that I didn't intend to, just glued a handle to the table the other day when I tried filling a void .

    What is a zip wheel? If I google it will it show up?

    The blocks are gona be somewhere in the range of 26mm square and varied lengths.
    It is a thin cut off wheel used for the angle grinder, for cutting ferrous metals. About 3/32" thick. All the boys up here welding in the oil patch call them zip wheels. I stuck with me.

    I think Charles Turnage had mentioned a tile cutter for this but that clearly would be a uni-tasker in my shop... Would a Foredom have enough 'oomph' for cutting through a 1" block, provided I find a large enough cutting wheel for it?

    Masonry drills? Thats not a bad idea. I have to test and let ya know how it works on the mammoth tooth.
    Wet saws/tile saw will work to cut the tooth into Spacers the stuff! May not be very useful tool unless your going to tile your bathroom or something. I have a cheap one I purchased at HD many years ago to do a remodel on my bathroom.. The only time I have ever used it since was to cut and shape fire bricks when relining or building a forge. So it was not a total loss.


    Pierre, Ok, now I know what your talking about. Thats another thing I have not tried yet. But I believe it would do the job, quick and in a hurry! May not be super accurate, but would get the job done! .

    Dremmel makes a diamond cut-off wheel that goes through the tooth like butter.
