You don't really need too many tools to cut tiles, mainly just a tile cutter, tile nipper, sharpening stone and pencil.

12 x 12 marble tile I have put that up twice don't know why it is not appearing


60 if there are no cuts.
You usually add about 10% for waste. So 66 tiles should do it.

How to fix laminate floor tiles gaps?


First, you need to get to one edge on the narrow side. (Where the slats run toward)

Second, you need a mallet and a hook tool.

Essentially, you need to put force on the edge to push the slats/planks together.

The mallet is used to put a lot of force on the slats to push them together.

The hook tool is inserted at the end of the row of tiles/slats/panels. The mallet is then used on the other part of the tool, so every hits force is transferred to the tile.

The slat/tile then will slightly shift toward the next one. Eventually this will put them together. Probably 4 to 8 mallet strikes should do on each row.

If this is an already installed floor, you may need to take the floor trim board off to get access to the edge of the tiles.

Easier way to cut glass wall tile


Easier than what? I use a diamond tile saw, and find that pretty easy.

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.

Was going to buy " the beast" but have seen a lot


"In my opinion" I would stay away from the Ridgid tile saw. We had one come into our shop for repair of a burned out motor and could not get parts for it. The saw, at that time, wasn't made by Ridgid, it only carried the Ridgid name. I'm not familiar with the Dewalt tile saw enough to give you an opinion on it. If I were in the market for a tile saw, I'd get one by MK Diamond, they specialize in tile, stone, etc. cutting and make the best tile cutters I've used and worked on. They're priced towards the high end but are of contractor or industrial quality so will last a long time. If they do need repairs they're easy to get parts for that are fairly priced.

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.

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.

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.
