  • Bridge Saw vs Sliding Table Saw

    In this video Master Wholesale President Blake Adsero compares an Imer Bridge Saw to a Dewalt Tile Saw with a sliding table. These are two different approaches to the same result of getting the cleanest and straightest cut on the tiles you are cutting. Each saw has it's advantages and disadvantages. Starting with the Imer, this is a large and some what heavier tile cutting saw, but it's advantage comes in when you need to cut larger tiles. This is because it does not have an arm mounting the motor and tile saw blade to the saw base that can get in the way when cutting across longer tiles. It can produce miter cuts at any angle from 0 to 45 degrees, and is more stable making precise cuts with ease.
    Next we have the Dewalt Wet Tile Saw. This saw is lighter, easier to maneuver around the worksite, and less expensive but has it's drawbacks as well. For cutting large format tiles the bridge saw is going to have the most available cutting angles, giving it better versatility. The Dewalt will do miter cuts at 22.5 degrees and 45 degrees only. Both of these tile cutting saws are very well made and each has it's place in the tile setter's arsenal. It just depends what exactly you are looking for in a tile saw.

  • Which Blade Should I Use for Cutting Porcelain Tile?

    At Master Wholesale we get a lot of questions about which wet tile saw blade is the best for porcelain tile.  Porcelain tile is a hard material that chips relatively easily.  Turbo rim blades cut quickly but will chip the tile more readily.  Narrow continuous rim blades cut with minimal chipping, but they can wander slightly due to the flexibility of the blade face, producing less than straight cuts.

    There is no single blade that does everything perfectly, but the Alpha Porcellana and our Master Wholesale White Porcelain blade do a very good job at providing a faster cutting, chip free blade.  Both of these blades are only for cutting porcelain and will deteriorate quickly if used on other materials.

    If speed is the most important factor, I would go with either our own Green Hornet blade or the MK Hot Dog blade.  Both are very thin rim blades, but the Green Hornet has a thick center for accuracy and stability.  The Hot Dog is a great blade but it can wander when pushed for speed.  If speed and accuracy are paramount, go with the Green Hornet.  If speed and chip free cutting are the most important features, you can’t go wrong with the MK Hot Dog.  Both of these blades can perform well on other harder materials as well, just avoid the softer stones such as marble.   With speed also comes a decrease in the lifespan of the blade.
