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

Options, change the blade, buy a more expensive blade, make sure the blade turns true when running, if not the armeture might bent inside the saw.

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.

While checking the intake tube the power cord got on the wrong side of the cord so when I turned the saw on it cut the power cord. Can I get that replaced?


Yes, it will require that you "crack" the case, but it isn't that difficult to do. Suggest wire ties so that you don't have to do the replacement very often.

I am not sure I can be any clearer than to say the saw dooes not cut the tile square.


the problem is probably the slide cart you set tile on to push it into the blade,on the right side theres a roller you can adjust the the height of the tray,or look at the very bottom of the cutting arm,left hand side,on the outside,where its painted red, theres 2 bolts that hold the cutting arm to the frame of the saw body,try this first, i bet nuts got loose and the cutting arm dropped a tiny bit screwing everything up

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 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.
