What's the best way to cut tile with a cirular saw?


I have a Hitachi 4" dry cut masonry hand held saw. Here's a link:

That should work fine. Use a good dust mask. I prefer a wet saw for cutting tile, more precise and no dust.

just put a diamond blade on it,,, we use segment'd blades found on ebay,,, hold the wet/dry vac nozzle just near the cut & you'll be fine,,, we normally just use a 4" grinder on a snapp'd line,,, for heavy production, we've got milwaukee bevel circle saws fitt'd w/dust muzzles & roller frames - o'kill for most, tho.
