    Cement dust

    My neighbour is cutting blocks for their drive and making big dustclouds. Luckily for me the wind is blowing it away but if it was not I would be breathing cement dust and my car would be smothered as well. Is there a wet dustfree way to cut up blocks?

    Yes. Petrol saw with water feed. Noisy though...

      Although, I must add, there is a guillotine type tool that wouldn't make dust or noise but I've only seen them on the internet or hire places, never used one and they might well be pants.

        I expect the water feed makes it cut better. I just discovered my rotary shaver works better when wet. I had been doing it dry for 50 years before discovering that.

          No. I've used both types cutting concrete building blocks, dry- the dust was terrible, wet and there was practically none but I had to wear water proof suit or I got soaked.

            Hand saw and/or hammer and chisel. (Yes you can get hand saws for concrete).

            It's power tools that create a lot of dust.
            In workshops you have vacuum extractors, but on site hardly anyone bothers.
