    would like to know whats the best way to cut cement fibre fencing sheets please

    the big corrugated ones

    I didnt think they cut it, isn't there a special tool that 'snaps' it?

      its a special scoring knife you can get form bunnings, either that or a grinder works just as well if you have one
      A motorcycle is a joy machine. It's a machine of wonders, a metal bird, a motorized prosthetic. It's light and dark and shiny and dirty and warm and cold lapping over each other; it's a conduit of grace, it's a catalyst for bonding the gritty and the holy.

        i was thinking of using a circular saw with a fine tooth blade

        i assume there would be plenty of dust though

          Yea plenty of dust, use a fine dust mask. Asbestos was safe until they worked out it would fuck you up, who knows what fibro cement will cause in years to come.
          I would try and use something that moves slower so you get less dust, like a recipro saw or jigsaw if its long enough. Or even a hand saw depending how much you have to cut

            One of these or a angle grinder with a diamond blade.

              angle grinder with diamond blade for masonry and wet the sheet to keep the dust down
              Do you remember the good old days before the internet?

              when arguments were only entered into by the physically or intellectually able.

                Bloke who installed my new fence just slapped the sheets in the ground then cut the top straight with a circular saw.
