They are 12"x12" x2" cooper tile. I was wondering how you cut this stuff without getting burn marks or killing a diamond blade?

Not following this!!!

These tiles are 12 inches square and 2 inches thick??? Having some doubts about that!!!:)

Using a wet saw with a diamond blade won't scorth copper tiles (if there is water in it and the pump is working) but it will raise hell with a diamond blade after a short time. You'll need to keep a couple of cement bricks nearby to keep the blade fresh. Everytime the blade drags saw-off 1/4" of the brick a time or two.:)

Most copper tiles that I know of are wrapped around a piece of fiber cement board. An everyday garden variety band saw will also cut them without scortching them but that too raises hell with the blade because of the cement board.:blink:
