Chiplessly Cutting Tiles

20946 Views 7 Replies 6 Participants Last post by  Paragon
I'm using a real cheap wet tile saw, cheapest on the market. I'm cutting ceramic tile 3/8" or so in thickness. The tile is chipping at the end of the cut. It cuts alright all the way up until when the front blade edge clears the tile. If I were cutting wood, I'd use tape here to avoid splintering. Unfortunately, tape doesn't stick to these tiles and gets soaked. What is the trick to avoid this end-of-cut chipping of tiles?

I have the same problem with my tile cutter- a cheapo from Home Depot. Purchased a new Dewalt blade and I can say it wasn't the blade. I wonder if better quality saws are free from this problem.
