Engrave-A-Crete’s The Mongoose Concrete Engraver

Mongoose Engraving Saw still shot of the productThe Mongoose 411, from Engrave-a-Crete, is a compact engraving saw with a powerful, high-rpm motor. Designed specifically for decorative concrete, it will enable you to easily cut beautiful patterns and designs with great accuracy, whether you’re making straight lines or circles.

Made from a solid block of 6061 aluminum, the Mongoose has a spring-loaded head that allows for excellent control. You press down to cut, and when you let up, the blade pops out of the cut. The saw uses 4″ diameter blades up to 3⁄8″ wide, and cutting depth is adjustable with the turn of a screw.

To align the Mongoose for a cut, you simply place the front and rear guide/pointers on the chalk line and cut. The guides flip up and out of the way to cut closer to walls. The rear pointer keeps the saw on track when reverse cutting.

The vacuum port, which connects to most standard shop vacs, makes cutting virtually dustless.

With the addition of the optional center pivot and connecting tubes, you can cut perfect circles and arcs. The center pivot has cross hair guides with sighting holes to help align it exactly over layout lines.
