Cutting a 4" hole in tile?
I need to cut a 4" diameter hole in my laundry room ceramic tile for a dryer vent. What's the best way to do this to avoid cracking the tile?

Is this tile on the floor or on the wall?

RotoZip with a diamond blade. Unless you have access to a 4" coring tool, actualy the hole would need to be a little bigger than that.:)

A right angle grinder with a four inch blade won't cut a neat four inch hole but a RotoZip with a 2-1/2" or 3" diamond blade will.

Just thought I'd throw that out there.:):thumbup:
