When using my wet saw the other day, the blade seemed to be having a hard time cutting the pocelin tile.
There is lots of ring left, but it seemed that I had to go slower and push harder.
It's a 10 inch MK100 with an Ultimate blade on it .
Is there some way to refresh the diamonds?

Cut a softer material ,like brick, to expose more diamonds---

There are store bought dressing stones, but a brick or chunk of concrete will do the job----

Pavers work very well as a dressing stone also.

A run of the mill rubbing stone will work wonders. Same on you use to soften the edge of your cuts. A couple passes through the rubbing stone every so often will bring that blade right back to life.

Explanation from what I know, the mix of metal and diamonds did not wear equally, the diamonds are gone hitting just metal, cutting the softer material will wear away some of the metal allowing more diamond to be exposed hence wearing the blade down.
I had a customer buy a new blade about 10 years ago because he thought it was worn out with about 1/4" depth left.

Just wanted to let you know that, two passes through the brick worked great.
Cutting better than ever. :thumbsup::clap:
