SOURCE: Tile Saw Troubleshooting

if your blade is newer or even well used,one way to make it cut better is find a used brick or a piece of a concrete block and cut through them,what really works best is a carborundum stone that setters use to hone cut edges of tile,you can get 1 at any tile store or home depot for 5 bucks. another trick is to lightly pull up on the table towards end of cut, if they keep breaking at end of cut, and you have the gauge set simply flip tile up side down and start your cut then back it off flip it over and cut through. all saw cuts leave minor chips on cut edge, we always stone cuts. cutting a brick cleans debris off blade. MAKE SURE WATER IS PRESENT WHEN CUTTING

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.

The problem could be bad brushes. Otherwise, you are probably burning the windings inside your motor. The slight banding noise could be an issue with the bearings in the motor itself. In which case you will soon be replacing the motor, so... we'll hope the brushes prove bad.
Assuming the motor has brushes, there will be 2 semi-large buttons on the motor (one on each side). They are screws. Remove them and beneath each one is a "brush". They should be long, hard, crack free, and smooth on the bottom where they touch the rotor. If not, then replace them. Almost all motors used for tools have brushes and some motors require disassembly of the motor itself to replace the brushes, but in your case, it should be an easy job. I can see one of the buttons on the Amazon picture.

Cuts are bowed


I heard that the rod that it rides on, may be bent. This is the rod, that you normally adjust, to get your straight cut, parallel to the blade. One mans solution was to turn the rods, so the bend of the rod, was vertical, rather than horizontal. You may want to look into ordering new , hopefully straight rods, from QEP too.

Saw is not cutting straight


Make sure the miter is lined up at 90 degrees to the blade. The fence has to be parallel to the blade and the blade tight. Cuts should be straight if the piece is held firmly and you move at the proper speed. Good luck!

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.

Saw is not cutting true / will not cut a straight line ?


Check blade is on properly. Remove blade and clean area where mounts to shaft. Make sure proper washers are in place. If blade is bent or wobbles replace. If blade is dull replace. Be sure you're getting enough water to saw. Don't force the tile through, let the saw do the work. Nothing helps any kind of saw more than a nice new 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.

Will not cut straight anymore, blade wobbles blade is not old


There are a couple reasons why the blade is wobbling. Either the diamonds are glazed over because the material you are cutting is way to hard or the blade is very thin and when metal gets hot it expands and when you make a longer rip cut it will tend to wobble. I sell blades for a living and i can almost gurantee this is the reason

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.
