Reviews on tile saws?


Workforce THD550 Workforce 7 In. Wet Tile/stone Saw
Anyone own one of these? Thinking of buying one to lay 18x18 tiles.
It seems like a small saw for a big tile, but have seen reviews (@homedepot.com ) that state that it will work fine, cutting up to 7" off of a tile. About 1000sqft job, I have a scorer, but will still need to rent or buy for contoured cuts.

Reviews on tile saws?


Old topic but thought I'd put in my 2 cents anyway....

I bought this tile saw for a few tile projects I've decided to do...my entry way and my bathroom...I've so far completed the entry way and it turned out awesome...the tile saw isn't fast but it worked like a charm...I'm no expert as I've never done ANY home improvement/repair projects before this, but I still liked the tool.

Thanks, I have now laid 450 sqft in a basement family room, saw is perfectly adequate for DIY, does chip on the edges a bit but all my cuts are along the wall anyhow.

Just looked at the tile saw that I had bought to do my kitchen, dining area and walla it's a Workforce THD550, as stated, for the diy'er it's worked wonderfully for me and for $79 (I think) well worth it.

Did my second project with this tile saw over the weekend...I laid tile in my bathroom...Worked like a charm other than the fact that I had to get a new blade already...
