New tile saw question

6018 Views 12 Replies 9 Participants Last post by  The Coastal Craftsman
My old portable tile saw is about to crap out. I'm looking to invest in a decent tile saw.

I was looking at the Rigid 10" saw and the MK 100.

I read the reviews for the rigid and have mixed feelings. Some people love it, some people hate it. I don't want to have to worry about having to keep adjusting for square, or have the bearings wear out.

The rigid has some nice features like the laser and the awesome stand but the mixed reviews scare me.

I have also read that the direct drives don't last as long as belt drives. I definately don't want to have the saw for 2 years and it craps out.

I'm hopefully looking to spend under 1k.

This saw would be used for residential jobs, mostly kitchens and bathrooms.

If you guys could steer me in the right direction I appreciate it.
