Tile Cutter
 
I am going to purchase a tile cutter. Just wanted to know if this was a good one.

http://www.amazon.com/MK-Diamond-158...839594&sr=1-14

Its a 2Horsepower, 4 1/2 inch blade.

I'm not using it everyday but on weekends if there is a job I need it for. Just for tiles on bathroom floors and the walls. Will the saw last a while? And is the blade too small?

The MK-145 saw has good Amazon reviews and has been in production for at least eight years. MK has an excellent reputation for high quality saws but this -145 model though, is their cheapest consumer grade saw.

For low cost saw to start in a new business I would go for something bigger like this 7" Bridge model from HF. It does NOT come with the 7" blade so that would be an extra 20 or 30$ more if you choose one their two optional diamond blades.
