Cutting tiles nowadays has never been like before. It used to be a pain in the neck when tiles are too large to fit into a space, or even when setting the tiles around a drain. Manually cutting them would be alright if there are only a few pieces of tiles that need to be cut. Cutting ten or more tiles manually just to make them fit in their respective spaces can feel like forever.

The latest tool or equipment to cut tiles is the wet saw tile cutter. This machine would similar to other circular saw cutting contraptions. The difference will be the water that is pumped to the circular blade to cool it down especially for several tile cuts to process.

The wet saw tile cutter also prevents dust from scattering all over the work area. In the process of cutting the dust gets wets and just settles below the work table.
Water and electricity are a bad combination. Water should be allowed to leak anywhere from the source up to the connection near the blade. Likewise, ensure that the hose is as far as can be from the cutting blade.
