Cutting concrete for acid stained floor

In reply to BRICK PATTERN STENCIL FOR OLD CONCRETE TO STAIN OR PAINT by RICK on May 15th, 1998 06:20 PM [Go to top of thread]

I am in the process of finishing a recently poured concrete floor using an acid based stain, but I want to cut a compass pattern into the floor (with a north arrow) and was wondering about the "best" method for accomplishing this task? I was wanting to do this task of "cutting" the floor, then stain the different colored sections, and then grout the lines between these sections. This would provide a break in the pattern. I am looking for a tool that would cut a 1/8" deep line in the floor in a circular and straight pattern. The circle goes from a @42" radius and works down to a 9" radius. Was thinking about welding a special base on a hand held "skill" type saw with a diamond blade, but if there is some other way of doing this I'd love to hear about it. Thanks Brad I can be reached at:
