How long of a cut?

Wow.....5 or 6....that's great.

I snap cut mostly....use the angle grinder for most everything else.

Even with that I didn't get a year out of my ridgid. Tried different blades and everything....just couldn't get the one I had to play nice. I hated cleaning that thing. Couldn't use a turbo blade with it.

I know it's been brought up before, but Criag swears by the Briccolina.......That might be one to try as well.

Re: Need Very Well Made Wet Saw


The MK-660HD looks good. But the bed is kinda small. I just wanted to have a nice accurate little wet saw to cut glass/granite/stone mosaic tiles. turning out to be a pain in the.....
This simple task, is not simple when looking for a wet saw that can cut a 12x12 tile mat. I do not want to lug 100 lb saw through lobbies, in elevators, down long hallways and finally into the the unit.
50lb=ok

SawMaster: SDT-700SR
I will pick up that Briccolina. Seems like a good saw for indivdual tiles and cutting outlet holes.

I know........... it shouldn't be this hard......when you start weeding them out, there's just not that many to pick from. Let us know how you like the Briccolina......seems like a good one.

Here's another one that might be worth checking out......Don't know anything about it.

Size motor...don't know
Cost....don't know
Probably has a great blade on it.

Re: Need Very Well Made Wet Saw


Great White is a Rebadged Briccolina
which makes sense because they have discounted the Bricc.
