Hello Ed,

Spraying water on 1 side of the blade will lead to uneven heating, and eventually blade failure (fly apart?).

The water not only helps cool the blade, but also helps remove the fine particulates from blade itself. With water only being sprayed on 1 side, the other side will likely become clogged. If blade gets hot enough on that side, will cause the material to smear across the blade surface and harden.

You may be able to rig a dual sprayer by using sprinkler heads, a Y valve, and a few short pieces of hose. Sprinkler heads blow water on the blade where it should be, mount onto blade housing in a way that they spray inwards. Feed them using short hose, from the Y valve, which is used to control the flow / amount of water to each head. Garden hose then screws into the Y Valve.

When I am making a cut, the blade will drift to the right making it difficult to make a straight cut. What would be the cure?

It's probably time for a new blade. If you are using a toothless diamond coated blade it can be difficult to see that the diamonds have been rubbed off. It drifts because it cuts more easily on the side of the blade where you have more diamond left. Be sure to use enough water to keep the blade from shedding it's diamonds too soon.

Ryobi 7" wet saw. water

Direct the water on to the slate itself just ahead of the cut. When you spray the blade, centrifugal force causes the water to fly back off. Good luck!

Engineered stone (Silestone) quartz double sink vanity. I need to cut it in half. Need help with what kind of saw, technique, etc.

You are going to cut a double bowl vanity top in half and use the 2 sinks? Do you have enough room on each side for the tops to be at least 24" with the bowl in the middle? You need a diamond saw, water cooled, a skilsaw will work with a diamond blade and somebody hold a hose on it while it is cutting, it would be better to find somebody, a granite top maker with a bridge saw to cut it for you, nice and straight. Then polish the cut edges that show. That stone you have is a pretty tough stuff, you can polish it easier than granite, and it cuts easier, but you still need the diamond, I wouldn't use a dry blade or a carborundum blade. Hope this helps.

Wet tile saw just stopped cutting; I only cleaned the water tray??

How thick is the diamond bearing segment running around the rim of the blade? There needs to be at least an eighth inch. The last part contains no diamonds. If their is sufficient diamond left the material you were cutting may not have been abrasive enough to expose new sharp diamods. You can cut a small piece of asphalt. This will wear the matrix down so new diamonds are exposed.

MK water saw - water goes every where but on the blade!

When you say you turn the pressure up, I presume you mean you are opening the suction on the side of the pump.

On the saw which I have used in the past it is difficult to aim the warter spray. I opted for more water (open the suction on the pump) and let it go. most of it went onto the saw blade - some went onto the tile, some on me and some on the wall --- put a piece of cardboard or something behind your saw to help contain the overspray.

Grinder support

They range in blade composition, number of teeth (cutting bits or surfaces), the amount of set (the width of the kerf removed by the blade), and the blade quality. * One of these circular saws will probably have a plain HSS (high speed steel) saw blade in it when it is bought new. * TCT (tungsten carbide tipped) blades are much more durable, especially in tough hardwoods. Also plywood and composite boards are hard on blades so TCT blades are needed on them. o Blades with fewer teeth (say 28) and with less rake to the face of the teeth, are designed for ripping along the length of timber, with the grain. They typically give a quick rough cut. They are cheap to buy and cheap to sharpen, since they have less teeth. o Blades with more teeth (say 40) are designed for crosscut type work. They give a lot neater cut in most circumstances. * Abrasive blades are made from carborundum or other abrasive materials bonded together in a resin or other synthetic binding material, and are used for cutting concrete or metal. They tend to wear away rather quickly, but for small projects, they are inexpensive and make fast cuts. * Diamond rim blades. These blades are made of special alloy metals with industrial diamonds embedded in the rim (around the outside diameter of the blade), and are for cutting hard concrete, cement composite materials, and masonry products like block or brick. * Special tempered allow blades. These blades have tempered carbon steel teeth, which are very fine (small, and closely spaced) for cutting sheet metal like galvanised roofing metal, or aluminum, copper, or brass tubing. * Dado blades. These are blades which can actually be adjusted to cut different width kerfs (the width of the material removed in the blade path). These blades make it much faster and easier for cutting dados and rabbetts, used for joining lumber. * Trim and panelling blades. These blades have fine teeth for making smooth, accurate cuts on finished materials like mouldings and panelling.
