SOURCE: 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.

SOURCE: crooked cuts

The bearings in your saw need to be replaced. I would contact a DeWalt store to obtain the parts or have them do the repair. You have an excellent saw there, well worth repairing. good luck.

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

How many 2-inch tiles need to cover 170 square-foot


A two-inch by two-inch tile covers 4 square inches. There are 144 square inches in a square foot, so 36 tiles are needed to cover one square foot. To cover 170 square feet you need 170 times 36 or 6120 tiles.

What direction for blade rotation


The top of the blade spins toward you, but maybe you are asking which way the blade should go? If this is a tile saw, the teeth are tiny bits of diamond and will work in either direction. If this is blade with visible teeth, as for cutting wood, the points of the teeth should be toward you on the top of the blade. Good luck.

May 26, 2012 | Qep 60087 Table Tile Saw 7" Wet

1 Answer

Target wetsaw starts and runs fine. Half way through the tile the blade binds and the motor bogs down which trips the breaker. It does it every cut now. Never had an issue before. Tightened the belt, still...


First thing I would check is that the table is square to the blade. If the back edge of the table that pushes the tile through the blade isn't perpendicular to the blade the cut will start fine but as you go through the tile the table will be pushing the tile into the side of the blade and cause a huge amount of friction, making the motor work harder and eventually pop the circuit breaker.

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.

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.
