this tile is a very economical solution for small tile jobs. I needed something to shape the tiles for a small en suite bathroom and this cutter worked perfectly. It arrived quickly and with no assembly required. Just plugged it in, filled up the water pan, and it was operational. The blade that came was sharp and was perfect for the job. I have no complaints with this purchase for the price.

Needless to say I'm not very happy with the outcome of this purchase decsion. This item was billed as being able to cut tile --porcelean, ceramic, slate and right out of the box when I tried cutting my first tile the wet saw was unable to do the job without chipping or cracking the tile. The saw blade was not of very high quality so I went to the store and purchased a high end Bosch blade for cutting tile -- but still this tile saw could not cut tile without chipping. I ended up renting a wet saw that utilized a moveable tray and continuous water pump to the blade to do the job I needed to have done this weekend. I would not recommend this product to anyone and I would also suggest that those using the website carefully consider the accuracy of the claims in reviewing product descriptions.

Great buy... completed a bathroom floor of slate tiles. The first few cuts were frustrating till the guide was tossed and the guard was alined with the blade...two screws loosened adjusted then tighten back. When putting the unit away --> cleaned out the bottom blade cover by removing the two screws and wash out the plastic; place back the cover and it's ready for another job...upstairs shower and tub surround. Can't beat it...yes the water reserve will need filled often and water on the ground which is common for lots of wet saws. The price, being able to cut thick tile, and the space it takes for storing, makes this saw a great purchase!

Bought to cut 1ftx2ft porcelian coated ceramic tiles. About 135 sqft. Many 45 degree cuts from room lay. The tile were "oversized" for the saw, but I had no problem using. The straight edge guide worked for many cuts, but not all because of this. Had to take off the fence over the blade to do a plunge cut. Worked OK. Be care with how the screws holding the bracket are taken out, - if you do this, you don't need to fully unscrew - loosen, and slide the bracket out. Total unscrewing makes it hard to put back together. Had to take off the underneath blade guard. Only complaint is the screws and what the thread into are cheap, but what do you expect for $**. Comparable saws in Home Depot or Lowe's retail for $98+tax. Also used this to do several longer "rip" cuts on my sunken jacuzzi tub cultured/man made marble side panel. Had to take off about 1/2 inch. Take your time doing this. Also, frequently check the water level, it goes thru water fairly quickly, so keep a supply near by. Can fill by pouring on the blade slowly. Keep the table area clean after each cut, keep debris off. If you hear a different noise undernearth while saw is running, might have to take off the underneath blade cover to remove small bits. Overall, ths worked as expected and needed. Shipping time was predictable, got here in time.

We tiled our backsplash. The saw worked okay until we bought a better blade. Then the wetsaw worked great. Be prepared to invest in a decent blade if you want to decent tile job. Now that we have the better blade, we will use the saw to do our master bath.

Apart from some damage to the metal corners and paintwork, the rubber feet (grommets) would not stay in place when pushed into the allotted holes. I payed a visit to a hardware store and purchased some screw in rubber cushions, nuts and bolts, at a cost of $10.00, they were worth it. This was a present for my wife, who make mosaic out of dishes and tiles. The saw itself work pretty good, but after first using it for around an hour, I don't think the blade will last long. I already priced them and they come in around $40 for a decent one. Overall the price wasn't bad compared to other sites/stores. I would not make a purchase of this type from Overstock again, due to the damage and cost of repairing the "feet". My wife was happy though, which is all that matters :)

Needed a saw to do small jobs around the house. It did the job on baseboards for my basement. Only complaint is that sawdust didn't collect in the bag that is provided to keep the job cleaner. As well the mitre angles were hard to see on the miter cut on the back of saw. Otherwise it was great.

Perfect saw for smaller DIY projects. It does a nice job and a guy doesn't need to spend a lot of money.

Product came as shown and listed. There isn't much else to say, it is a 7 1/4" circular Saw blade.

I was very unsatisfied with the way the product was shipped to me. The box was busted and the plastic pan for the saw had a split and paint was chipped off the metal. It was not wrapped in any bubble wrap and therefore damaged when I received it.

Would cut, water was leaking everywhere. We have used many saws and was hopeful buying our own would be wonderful. This refurbished saw is not operable. The smoke after the blade just stuck 5 minutes after we started using it, with water everywhere was a nightmare.

It works. It binds close to the end of the tile cut. the fence isn't user friendly. the instructions-what instructions/lacking... packed well, arrived on time, priced well, It is what it is, a wet saw to do minor tile work-no real complaints... If you want a better wet saw, expect to pay much more...

Tried it ass soon as it arrived. Perfect tile cut, like a pro! Now I can use this to finish all my bathroom tiling jobs. Compared to a 4 inch saw sold at a well known DIY superstore for 125 dollars, this is definitely cheaper. Thank you Overstock!

I bought this for a home remodeling project and it was my first time tiling so I didn't want to spend major bucks. It cut through glazed ceramic tile very cleanly and was easy to use. It even cut through the 1-inch thick ceramic liners I was using for the project. Now I'm looking for other things to put tile on in my house.

perhaps it's not a tool you would use often but it gives me a great feeling that when I go to install my backsplash I have the tool I need, don't have to rent or borrow and, my sons can rent it from MOM.
If you like doing home-improvement projects but still want to have free time to enjoy the finished product, a power saw is an essential tool to speed up your projects. Whether you have a circular saw to cut planks for a new deck or a jig saw for fine woodworking, knowing how to use your saw safely is of utmost importance. Fortunately, running your power saw like a professional doesn't take much time.
Even with today's plentiful assortment of power saws, many carpenters keep a hand saw around for special projects. Hand saws come with a variety of blade lengths and tooth configurations to allow you to cut different wood types. Hand tools require no electrical connections or batteries since you operate them manually, and they are a good back-up option when you're working in an area where electrical power is not available. Using a hand saw is simple, but it takes a little muscle and a bit of technique to cut wood efficiently.
A table saw is a staple in most woodworking shops because of its simplicity and versatility; if a project requires straight cuts, the table saw can get the job done quickly and accurately. Because the tool's design is so simple, novice woodworkers may not take the time to learn how to use a table saw safely. A mistake while using any kind of saw could carry serious consequences, including amputation and death, so before you fire up your table saw, make sure you're taking the proper precautions.
Miter saws, also commonly referred to as "chop saws," are one of the most useful power tools in a carpenter's arsenal. A miter saw performs the same tasks as a traditional hand saw, but it does the job in a fraction of the time and with a cleaner cut. Nearly any woodworker can justify the purchase of a miter saw for the home workshop, but with four different styles of saws available from many manufacturers, you have a lot of choices. Check out the following tips to help you narrow down your decision and find the right miter saw for you.
There's no question that the right power tool can help you complete the job more efficiently than traditional hand tools. The success you have with your power tools is dependent on purchasing the right tool and using it safely. For many do-it-yourself home improvement projects around the home, portable power tools, such as drills and sanders, are ideal because they can be easily stored when they're not in use. If you're outfitting a garage or workshop, you'll likely be considering stationary tools, such as table saws and drill presses, as well as more portable power tools.
Choosing the right band saw blade is important for both the quality of your work and your safety. When choosing a band saw blade, consider the project ahead: the type and size of blade for your saw matters just as much as the material that needs to be cut. While selecting the wrong band saw blade can cause undue stress and danger to you if the saw blade breaks, the proper blade can be a valued, long-lasting tool. Paying attention to the details ensures efficient, safe work with quality results.
A wet saw is a useful power tool for anyone who will be cutting tile. Wet saws achieve a clean cut without breaking the tile by using a diamond-encrusted blade that rotates the saw through a pan of water as it cuts. The water keeps the saw blade cool, which prevents tile breakage and helps protect the saw's motor. Some wet saws are also capable of cutting through dense metals and brick. For a single weekend project, renting a power tool such as a wet saw may be more economical than purchasing one, but if you'll be cutting tile more than a time or two, owning one of these handy power tools is worth the investment.
Whether cordless, gas-powered or electric, power tools have revolutionized home building and repair. Imagine building an entire house with hand tools like saws, hammers and screwdrivers. Speed and power sometimes come with a price, however: The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) lists several serious hazards associated with power tools, including electrocution, explosions and injuries from blades and moving parts. This list of safety facts offers tips on using power tools effectively without causing injury to yourself or others.
Cordless power tools have come a long way and command a large following in the home-improvement industry. Some of the most popular cordless tools include drills, circular saws, screwdrivers, impact wrenches, reciprocal saws, nail guns and power sanders. While they haven't replaced large shop tools, cordless power tools are very popular on construction sites. Cordless power tools are also perfect for the homeowner who enjoys taking an active role in home improvement and maintenance.
Cutting tile is part of any tiling project. Different types of tile cutters are available, allowing you to perform small trims, straight cuts and hole cuts or complete a large project. Using the right tile cutting saw in the correct way will make your tiling project go more smoothly, resulting in fewer mishaps and less expenditure.
October's birthstone is the opal. Ancient Romans called the opal the "queen of gems" and saw the stone as a symbol of purity and hope.

With their beautiful iridescence and shining, changing colors, opals are perfect for all types of October birthstone jewelry, including rings, earrings and bracelets.
