Thanks Pounder.
I feel better now, the fever broke. I can see clearly again.
Now, what size blade did that wormdrive Skil take again?

I found someone selling a K770 14" Husqvarna used with a new blade for 500.00. I'm going to have a look tomorrow.

That could be a deal and a half. They come in handy for cutting alot of things.

If you use that for your job, go real gently with the terra cotta. There's more vibration and bounce compared to electric saw. If tiles aren't bedded well, cracking is possible. Even if bedded well, too.

Without tiles, this is my first choice hands down.

How well do you think it would work on 6 - 16"x16"x3.5" squares?

I think it would work great. It’s the Makita 4114. Done a bunch of small cutouts like you’re talking about. It will take longer to do then a gas saw. About 25% longer I would guess.
I do a lot of interior work were we can’t use the gas saws unless we want to kill ourself...

I prefer to call my concrete cutting guy.

Problem with a concrete cutting guy is they are usually a few weeks out. I have never had a good one and you always need a guy there to supervise and make sure they don't ruin stuff. I actually use my plumber and/or his stuff as he does it all the time. He has the makita 14" electric and I cut thru 6" of real stone veneer in 2 passes no problem. I bought some pricey blades and only used 1 he got the rest.

It has wheels and it's not that heavy. 28lbs.

I like the idea of the wheels for better accuracy.

My weight comment was about the Milwaukee Mx fuel battery concrete saw,

I don’t believe that it has wheels and it weighs a ton. I tried it last year at the world of concrete and couldn’t see myself getting one since I have to hold a saw for most of my cuts

Sawing a brick wall

Your makita 4 stroke is on the heavy side as well but it doesn’t compare to the Milwaukee fuel, obviously the battery adds a lot to the saw

The weight doesn’t matter as much if you are doing low ground cutting with it
