Install the masonry blade into your compound miter saw. Adjust the angle of the saw by releasing the lock and turning it to the correct mark on the table gauge.
Measure and mark the paver to be cut using a speed square and a black felt tip marker. A speed square is a compact version of a carpenter's framing square; it is triangular in shape, making it easy to handle. Place the paver on the compound miter saw table.
Press the paver firmly to the back of the table fence. Without turning the power on, lower the compound saw blade to the paver, aligning the mark with the blade. Raise the compound saw blade and turn the saw on by pulling the power trigger.
Hold the paver firmly against the rear table fence with one hand; make sure your hand isn't in the way of the saw blade. Pull the saw blade down in a slow and controlled manner with the opposite hand, allowing the blade to cut the paver material. Release the saw's power trigger and raise the blade.
Swing the paver around or flip it over and repeat if you weren't able to complete the cut through with the saw blade the first time.
