Wet Tile Saw Blades


It's almost time for a new 10" blade for my Dewalt Wet Tile saw. I am not to familiar with what is available so I thought I would see what you guys use and what the consensus is on best performance. Budget is $200 and under.

Re: Wet Tile Saw Blades


I'd imagine your first job will be put together a shopping list, then drive south. I've never used them and have only seen one shop that had them, but I've always been interested in trying the norton blades.

Re: Wet Tile Saw Blades


I need to resurrect this thread real fast. I have a bridge saw, however on some cuts, the blade (black widow) flexes and it isn't tracking as well as I'd like. This means I have to manually go point to point to get a straight cut, and cut from the top down in increments to get a perfectly square cut. It's a real PITA, and slows me down something fierce when I'm having to do precision cuts that show, like around a niche for example. It also has a huge tendency to deflect on thin shaves, where I might be shaving less than a 1/8".

I like the Raimondi T3 design with the thicker middle portion of the blade to stabilize it, but my bridge saw takes an 8" blade, and the T3 only comes in 10".

My questions is this:

Would anyone recommend the razor or the stealth for straightest tracking, or is there another brand you'd recommend? Basically, if you've used them, what are the pros and cons from your perspective of both those blades? I know that the stealth also does dry cutting, but it says it works for wet cutting too. I'm not concerned with having a thin blade so much, as a clean straight cut that won't deflect.
