    granite worktops

    We're having the kitchen refitted and have purchased some granite worktops. The only problem is cutting them! They need cutting in about 4-5 places. Is it a hard job? I dont wana do it myself tbh cos i dont wana make a mess. (they were pretty expensive) Is there a simple machine i can buy to do it or am i going to have to call somebody out to do it? and how much will they charge?
    thank you

    The problem is getting a nice finish on the cut-off end. Not a straight-forward thing.

    It'll be a specialist job mate, you need a big diamond edge cutting disc which also has a water resevoir to keep the cutting disc cool. Not something I would attempt myself.

    I cut down a window sill as we moved the window.
    Used a diamond grinding disc and made a wooden jig to run along.
    It chipped out a bit, but was going to be set in the wall.

    Had the new corner and edge bullnosed as it joined a door.

    That was £50.
