    Default How best to cut 600 naturel stone?

    I am quoting on a job that will require 25 of these large stone tiles that tops are selling cutting.
    At the moment I have a plasplugs wet cutter a rubi ts40 and a big clinker.
    I have been informed that i will not be able to dry cut them and they are approx 12mm thick.
    I do not do much of these sort of tiles so don't want to spend much on something that will not be used much so ideal y as cheap as possible.
    At the moment I am thinking about hiring something but not sure what would be best or if the hire money would be better spent going towards my own.

    At the moment I am looking at the two rexon radial cutters in screwfix b ut would they be up to the job?
    Should I just get a better normal wet cutter my plassplugs is very well used but still going strong and has done everything I have ever wanted it to .
    your opinions would be most welcome

    You might get a good deal from CTD for a grinder if you have one close and ask them very nicely.

    If you want to spend money and buy a really good one then this the one for you...>> TradeTiler.Ltd Makita Angle Gringer

    or this..>>> TradeTiler.Ltd Makita Power Saw

    but as grumpy has said..CTD are selling a cheap make for 20..ideal for the odd job...but for a one to last longer then go with the tradetiler one..
