Success!

Success! Surprised with 69 views that no one had a suggestion! These half inch 16" X 16" tiles had a whopping 1/4 inch of mortar across every one. I found a diamond wheel cup for 60 dollars that did the trick. All 5 tiles I got PERFECTLY clean in under 30 minutes. It did create a bomb of dust that resembled the sand blasting that they do downtown. I already had a grinder. This post should help a few people out there.
