October 19, 2007, Newsletter Issue #46: Using A Tile Saw

Tip of the Week

Tile saws look intimidating, especially with the large blade, but they can actually be safer to operate than a circular saw -provided you have the right safety gear. Your tile saw results may depend on one simple little detail about your tile: can you cut it wet, or dry? Some materials can only be properly cut using a wet tile saw, which runs water over the blade to keep it from overheating during the cutting operation. Marble and granite are recommended for wet tile saws only. When in doubt, ask your home improvement shop crew what tiles work best with a dry saw or a wet one.
