How do you like the Rigid saw? I just purchased an off brand at Harbour Freight w/ a 10" blade for a project I just started and was also looking at the Rigid for Home Depot.

[QUOTE=angus242;1284711]That's only a few bucks cheaper than what our friends at MidWest Trade Tools sells it for. You also get credit for future purchases when you buy from them. Their support is great and they even stop by here from time to time.

Thanks Angus! I will always do whatever I can for everyone on the forum. I encourage you to shoot me an email or give me a call if you have a question on price. I am not going to say I will always be the lowest, I won't, but I will surely take care of you every step of the way. i will try and drop by more often.

It's not the easiest thing to set up or tear down, but it sure beats 600 trips up and down the stairs.

It's fine, nothing special and nothing wrong with it either.

What do you guys think of the new Husqvarna TS-60? We can't keep em in stock but they have a pretty unique water system that eliminates a lot of the mess.

Don't know of anyone that has used an actual production model.

Re: Wet Saw For Interior Remodel Use??


We got 6 in last week and they were gone in 2 days. We send out product review requests so I'm hoping our customers will take the time to use it.

I know they had them tested by consumers before going into production. Just curious to see how their system holds up on the job.

I wish the Husky had a wider water tray like the Dewalt. Otherwise the saw looks awesome!

Re: Wet Saw For Interior Remodel Use??


I have a monster 30" bridge saw that controls its spray very well. I usually lay down a waterproof tarp and then a bunch of old bath towels on the floor to prevent puddling and foster evaporation. Then I tape painter's plastic over anything nearby and I'm good to go.

It's totally worth the 30 minutes of setup time versus going in and outside all day long, as most of my bathrooms take at least 2-3 days to tile.

Re: Wet Saw For Interior Remodel Use??


A couple of years back I saw a dry cut saw setup at Dal-tile. It would cut up to 18 inch diagonal and had not water but hooked up to a vac . I cut some porcelain tile on it and it cut nice with no chip out or broken corners. I believe it was about 2500. I did not buy it because money was tight at the time (still is). Has anyone ever seen this saw set up. Some of the high rise condos here on the coast will not let you set up a wet saw on the balcony or in the units.

Wonder if it makes clean cuts with marble and granite.

Looks interesting though.

Gapierce: Just joined the board and saw your comment. That particular version of the Rigid saw was taken off the market a few years ago. It was manufactured in the same facility as many Bosch power tools. The newer version of the Rigid (already taken back off the market) was being manufactured by a different company (TTI, owners of the Ryobi brand).

My company has actually made some improvements to the Rigid design and entered in to an exclusive agreement the original manufacturer. It is now under the BEAST brand by Lackmond. We're based out of Kennesaw, Georgia. Let me know if you'd like more information on the tool or if you want to see one locally.
