Wet saw?


Does anyone have a recommendation on an inexpensive, yet high quality wet saw that can be used to cut 6" tile for a kitchen backsplash? I could rent one at HD, but they're $42 a day and I'll probably need it for at least two days.

Thanks,
Kelly

have a look on Ebay.
Wall tile is usually fairly thin and the cheap ones on Ebay work okay for them.
You may need to get a better blade if the tiles chip too much.

One of the inexpensive $100 or so saws from HD would do the job. Resell it when done to get half your money back. Also watch Craigslist for someone selling one after they did a project.

Or just get a manual cutter and a nibbler tool - for small job like a backsplash.

Usually you can get a brand new one reasonable at Harbor freight.

Yes, that's what a friend recommended.
