Choosing the Best Tile Saw

Each degree of craftsmen requires a different tool to best meet their specific needs; when choosing a tile saw, it is all too critical to ensure you settle down with the right one. For the most industrious users requiring the most rugged tile saws, there are two that bring your tiling projects to a new level of efficient professionalism.

MK Diamond builds some of the most superior tile saws in the business coupling experience and innovation to bring craftsmen a tile saw unlike any other manufacturer. Their MK-100 (10") wet cut tile saw is born and made in the USA with all the power and perks professional craftsmen require from their equipment. Boasting a 1-1/2 horsepower motor that is internally cooled with a built-in fan, the tool is protected during extended use allowing you achieve the best results under any conditions. The saw is built with permanently lubricated, dual-sealed, heavy duty blade shaft bearings; this is good for several reasons: one being, the bearings are permanently lubed, so the saw always runs smooth and you never have to crack into it to monitor bearing lubrication. Another reason being, the dual-sealed bearing is ultra resistant to corrosion keeping your saw sailing smooth for longer. The saw has a linear-bearing and chrome plated guide-bar assembly for the most precise cutting, and with a variable height cutting head, the tool can beautifully plunge cut as well as use blades smaller that 10" in diameter. The MK-100's one-piece reinforced zinc-plated steel frame provides superior strength and corrosion resistance, and with a built-in water distribution system, the saw is additionally designed to supply water to both sides of the blade during cuts. This provides brilliantly smooth, clean cutting and ultimately renders this saw ideal for both heavy-duty and intricate tile work.

Dewalt's D24000 (10") wet cut tile saw is another industrial giant. The saw has a cantilevering rail/cart system that allows for a huge 24" ripping capacity (and capacity for 18" tile on the diagonal). Integrated into the tile saw's frame is a stainless steel rail system designed to ensure always accurate cuts, and although the tool's frame is built tough, its also nicely compact to simplify storage and transportation. The plunge cut capability of this saw allows craftsmen to make quick and accurate cuts for electrical outlets and etc, and with dual water nozzles that adjust for desired/optimal water placement on your blade, over-spray and mist messes are totally minimized. The saw has a powerful 1-1/2 horsepower motor built to smoothly slice through even the hardest materials like stone and porcelain; with all that power and a 3-1/8" cut capacity, this tile saw can burn through some super thick masonry. For the heaviest of industrial jobs and also for precise cutting, this saw delivers quality, power, versatility, and the authority to get your tough jobs done right. (Model number for saw with stand: D24000S)

For light users and users on a budget, MK Diamond's MK-370EXP (7") wet cut tile saw is a bear of a tool at a surprisingly good value. Despite boasting tremendous power and a seriously high-torque motor, the MK-370EXP is still perfect for home users and hobbyists. Its maintenance-free, self-lubricating pinion and gear-box assembly helps to keep the saw running smooth, while its single piece zinc-plated steel frame keeps the saw stable, sturdy, and uncommonly long-lasting. The saw also has a variable height cutting head, a fan favorite which allows craftsmen to make quick and accurate plunge cuts for electrical outlets and etc. The saw's cutting table is built with sliding aluminum die-cast for longevity and can rip 18" tile rendering this saw perfectly ready to tackle most any job you can throw at it. Home users especially appreciate the saw's trademarked MK Safeswitch which prevents the saw from engaging when the locking key is removed. Although a bit smaller than the aforementioned tile saws, the MK-370EXP is a heavy-duty machine capable of mastering nearly every application with uniquely MK Diamond quality and ease.
