Ridgid Wet Saw


I just bought the Ridgid WTS2000L Wet Tile saw. I'm having problems cutting 20" X 20" porcelain tile. I'm not getting a straight edge cut. The saw is chipping the tile. The size of the chip is about 1/16 to 1/8 of an inch along the cut. Is it possible to get a straight edge cut with a wet saw? Could it be that my wet saw is defective. I change two blades made by different manufacture and exchange the Ridgid for another one but still have the same problem? is anyone else having this problem? If so, any recommendation on a better wet saw?

Diamond blades are not all created equal. For porcelain and especially glass tiles use a better grade blade. I use a blade made for glass tile cutting. It will contain finer diamonds packed more densely on the blade.

Also make sure you're not feeding the tile too fast.

What brand of blade would you recommend for cutting ceramic/porcelin tile?

Thank you.

I use a MK-215GL for glass and a TX-30 pro blade for porcelain. I do not use ceramic much other than porcelain ceramics.
