    How to Use a Tile Saw

    Published on 14 April 2020, Tuesday, 11:45 AM

    Use the tile saw to create the correct width of tile as you come to the end of the space. The tile saw will give you a nice smooth cut compared to a tile cutter.

    The stand is separate to the saw, and there's a drip tray underneath the saw with a small water pump.  The water serves two purposes - to keep the saw blade cool and also to suppress the dust created when cutting a tile. Even if the water is going to suppress the dust, you still should wear a dust mask.

    Using the saw is quite simple. Mark out the tile to the size you need. Drop the saw down onto the sliding tray with the tile, then push the tile towards the blade. Water lubricates the cut to keep the dust down.
