Tile Cutter Alpha


We need urgent help of how to cut 35" long Porcelain tiles. Its the rip cut that will be 35" long.
does anybody know the Alpha AWS-125 wet stone cutter?
We are really need to avoid spending a smaller fortune on the tool, as we only have a few tiles to cut.
thanks

I suggest you to pay a tiler for using his wet saw... it make not sense to spend money for a few tiles

if they arent going to be visible. Maybe covered by baseboard and quarter round? Then i would just by a high end diamond blade for your skil saw. If you do this remember to set your depth on the blade for say 1/8" and score your cut first. then cut all the way thru. (so if it breaks it can be a controlled break on the score line) Maybe even clamp your level to the tile next to the cut so it may be used as a guide.....
