Top customer reviews
1) The "laser" was shoddy plastic construction (to say the least).
2) The saw wouldn't cut a straight line. Over a 24 inch tile it crept 1/4 inch....very noticeable.
Other annoying things....the screw driver provided for assembly only worked on some of the screws. The blade guard was inconvenient (to say the least).
We returned the saw after one afternoon of attempting to get it to work for us. VERY frustrating!
Definitely invest in the Black Widow saw recommended for this product - it cuts through tiles like a knife through hot butter.
The laser might seem like a bit of a gimmick but is actually really useful. Take the time to set it up and mark with a bit of nail polish or paint where the laser falls at both ends. You can then calibrate it before you start cutting each time and get really accurate cuts.
A great product at almost any price - but for the $250-300 mark it's fantastic!
It came quickly and, luckily (considering the awful packaging), was undamaged. Setup was straightforward and the saw has a usable blade (for ceramic tile). The cuts are straight and they go quickly.
The one issue I had was that the water reservoir leaked like a sieve. It was more than a drip and it's a good thing I had a five gallon bucket handy to catch the resulting flow.
If you can put up with the sort of issues that come along with something made with limited quality control (I got lucky compared to what others have gone through, so YMMV), the value this saw represents is exceptional as the price gap between it and better saws is quite large. In my case, I bought it specifically to do this job and even if I never use it again, it was worth what it saved me in time and effort. Were I a professional, I would opt for a better quality tool.
Cons: Packaging is not designed to properly secure an 86 lb tool but mine did arrived in good shape. The included blade will not cut porcelain tile without chip out. Not sure how much ceramic it would even cut. Go ahead and order a good blade with the saw, The miter is plastic and probably cant be relied on. Need 2 people to move it around.
Pros: Heavy duty. Bridge design slides easily and smoothly. Will cut 24" long rip so handles the 6" x 24" wood look tiles and other large tiles. Ships 2 day for free with Amazon prime. Pump works good. Does not spray too much water around.
Be careful when installing the blade. I didn't get the original blade installed flush against back holder somehow on first try and it caused a wobble and bad cuts. You can check from top with flashlight to see if any space between blade and back side clamp.
This saw does the important things for a very good price. It will make a long straight cut every time. So much better than the little 7" entry level tile saw I had been using. I rehab a house every year or so, and this is a perfect choice for me.
