"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.
Look for a button that you can press to lock the shaft in position. When you depress the button, you may still have to revolve the blade and shaft until the lock engages the shaft. Then unscrew the bolt from the shaft. Some others have an Allen wrench well in the end of the shaft, and you can insert the allen wrench to hold the shaft while operatiln the wrench to loosen the blade. Some others have a slot in the shaft end for inserting a slotted standard screwdriver for holding the shaft while the wrench is used to loosen the blade.
One of these methods will be available to you!
Hi, I just went to that site you posted, I don't know what saw you were looking to buy, the saws looked like good quality, BUT they all looked very overpriced. Ive been doing tile since 1984 and have owned, mk,target, felker, pearl, tile saws. everyone of these saws have a 10 inch blade and are very very good for a thousand dollars you can get these saws with saw stand,blade all the gauges ready to cut.the pearl saw \pearl abrasive co.\vx 10.2xl has a 1 1\2 hp motorweights 83 pounds and cut a 2 foot by 2 foot tile or a 18x18 diagonally,great saw,the mk, target and felker have saws that will cut the same size of tile but are bulky in size.if i was you go ask tile setters at a tile store, before you buy a saw.good luck Chad
take a pair of good vise grips and hook onto blade tightly, slide uo against back braket. that will hold the blade from spinning while you remove the nut, try bumping your ratchet/ wrench w/ a rubber mallet or hammer. hope this helps
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.
