    At that price i suspect it'll not last as long as a diamond disc, annoyingly the diameter reduces as part of the wearing process so eventually you can't cut to depth. Should be fine for 'a few pavers'

    Thanks. I suppose at this price it might be fine to try out, but like you say, a diamond one might cute quicker and cleaner, who knows.

    Anyone have any recommendations on decent discs in the medium to economy range?

    Norton are OK IMHO. Stone cutting discs would be fine if it's a couple of slabs and that's it. They do take a bit longer to cut through and are a bit dustier. It's a long time since I used one as most people use a diamond blade now.

    Is this the one, at about £15?

    or this segmented version:

    The stone cutting discs look cheap, but I might as well buy a diamond one I suppose. First time I've used an angle grinder so might as well use a blade that will make my life easier than have to wrestle with it. Actually, this Norton looks bang on the money. Not sure if it's as good as the erbauer, or better:

    Aldi, or get a "Blue Spot" disc off amazon around £12 or so and those are as good and last as long as any.

    Stone carbonundrum discs are crap in comparison to diamond discs

    Not used a non-diamond disc for cutting since I first bought an angle grinder about 20yrs ago, they seem totally pointless for cutting

    Just went up on ebay and picked up a new Bosch Professional Plus Diamond Cutting Disc for just £12 around the corner from my house. Result. Googling the part number (2608600358) brings up some eye watering prices!
