High Quality Tile Saws
Tile saws are an indisputably important tool - whether you are a professional artist or a tile cutting hobbyist - allowing you to more easily cut glass, ceramic, porcelain, and other tiles. While cutting tile or stone pieces is nearly impossible to do by hand, with a tile, ring, or band saw, intricate cuts can be easily made with precision. In fact, because these cutting saws use diamond tipped or coated blades, users can make not only long, straight cuts, but intricate pattern cuts.
A high quality wet tile saw will likely be made by one of the best known manufacturers in the market - MK Diamond, Gemini, Diamond Tech, and Gryphon. Further, a top quality wet saw will be able to make precision cuts in many different types of materials. Along with reliable, fast straight cutting and complex curves for tile installations and mosaic tile creations, these saws can cut thick tile, marble, stone, and porcelain.

Ring Saws - Band Saws and Wire Saws
Using Saws for Stained Glass, Tile, and Marble Cutting
No matter what project you are working on, tile saws will allow to work through the cutting process with ease, precision, and confidence.
Band Saw - These are the most popular - and often used - pieces of equipment for cutting tile, glass, and marble. Band saws use a diamond tipped blade to make precise straight cuts and patterns. When using a band saw, particularly with stained glass and glass panes, it is important to keep the saw wet. The heat produced from friction between the blade and stained glass can cause it to crack. Constant water applied to the band saw can keep the blade cool and reduce the glass dust in the air.
Ring Saw - Ring saws use a circular, diamond coated blade and are a bit more versatile than band saws. Gemini makes an exceptional ring saw with a blade that has no center. The blade doesn't need to be changed to work with different materials and makes straight cuts as well as tight radius cuts of 3/4 inch. The ring saw's blade is a bit wider than the band saw’s blade, which increases the amount of glass lost during the cut.
Wire Saw - The best choice of saw for cutting in any direction is the wire saw. Make sure the diamond blade stays wet when glass cutting since the wire saw blade tends to heat up quickly. The blade is designed to make cuts in any direction and is able to make exquisitely intricate stained glass designs.
