SOURCE: Tile Saws for shor and vurved cuts

A 100mm angle grinder is used for that kind of work. It can also be used for "L" shaped cuts and for making holes. It is usually being used dry and more rarely used wet

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.

SOURCE: 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.

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.

Cutting porcelain tile with wet saw and it breaks at the end of the cut?


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.

I purchased the new Ridgid tile saw named " The Beast". Initially it looked like a great saw buy after cutting a few ceramic tiles I began to notice that it cuts with a slight curve. I could not find any...


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.

How to use Tile Saw


To cut a tile using a wet tile saw, measure the exact space in which the tile will fit. Cuts are usually along a perimeter, in a corner, or around an electrical outlet. Mark the line on the full-sized tile in grease pencil. Most saws will accommodate tiles up to 12 inches (30 cm) in size, but oversized saws can be rented for huge floor tiles. Wearing safety glasses, place the tile on the moveable platform, and line up the mark with the edge of the saw. With the motor running, slide the platform toward the blade with an even but gentle pressure. Since you are grinding the tile apart, ensure that the water have sufficient time to cool everything.
