Porcelain tile has to be cut painstakingly slow, especially the last inch or two to prevent the splitting problem you are having. When you are cutting tile, the sawblade rides up just a little as the tile is being fed into it. You'll notice it if you stop pushing the tile through and watch the head drop down just a bit. When you are getting to the last part of the cut, reduce the pressure you are using to push the tile into the blade so the blade can wear away the tile with little pressure and vibration as possible.

SOURCE: tile saw not cutting straight

Sometimes a blade that is set deep enough will walk in this manner, especially if it is a thin kerf blade like the MK Hotdog blade.

Also, a blade which has worn unevenly will do this too.

What is a wet saw? is it easier to use than a tile cutter?


Wet saws make cutting thick or strong tiles easier, they also make it easier to make multiple cuts on a tile. It takes longer to use the wet stone so if you don't really have to use it then cutting with a tile cutter will go much faster.

I have a 10" ridgid


With bigger tiles I have to cut more than half way, and then turn tile around and cut last bit from other direction.

You might be able to cut half way down tile, and then move tile forward on tray.

My wheels come to a stopper and don't run off the track, so my saw is different than yours.

Its either the speed of the blade ( mine came with its speed at half rate), or its the crappy blade they give you with the saw. If a cut is bowing your blade is having a tough time with material. This often happens with tough porcelain tiles and not using a porcelain blade.

Saw will not cut straight and destroys blades 250


I had the same problem. If you are cutting porcelain tile, it will not cut straight. The motor isn't fast enough.

These saws are made for stone cutting.

Wet saw not cutting material completely


It might need a new blade. But try putting an old tile or offcut behind the tile you are cutting. Make sure the table surface is clean and flat. Residue tends to build up around the front of the blade which could cause the tile to crack. The ryobi's have a habit of water getting into the motor and the bearing destroys itself. Next time you take the blade off, take of the blade support and put bearing grease behind the rubber washer. I've blown up two this year until I worked out what the problem was.

Tile Saws types problem


Mass produced ceramic tiles of medium to soft grades are cut easily with hand tools. The glazed surface of the tile is first scored with a tool that carries a hardened metal wheel. Then with a support directly under the score pressure is applied to either side of the cut and the tile snaps along the score. The harder grades of ceramic tiles like fully vitrified porcelain tiles, stone tiles, and some clay tiles with textured surfaces have to be cut with a diamond blade.

Tile Saws question


Since tiles are so thick, brittle, and made of ceramic, a special saw must be used. An ordinary circular saw for wood or metal would either break the tile or get so hot that it would seize up and stop cutting. However, ceramic tile is not cut well with sharp blades. The wet tile saw was invented to address all these unique properties of ceramic. It doesn't overheat, uses a relatively dull blade with no serrations, and can be transported to a job site and set up on top of an existing table or sawhorses.
