My 7″ water-cooled tile saw sprays more water on me and on the ground than it does on the cutting surface, so I’m eager to step up to Craftsman’s 18” Laser Tile Saw. The laser helps guide your cuts through ceramic, marble, or granite tile, and the saw cuts over the project, like a radial arm saw, so it’s easy to see where you’re going. It comes with an extra saw blade and a stand with legs that fold up so you can roll the unit to your next job site.
The Craftsman 18” Laser Tile Saw sells for $300. You can always rent one, but if your projects run as long as mine — several weeks or more — it’s cheaper to buy.
