    CF68CA3F-C975-4442-B648-5FB5D6C6C66C.jpeg Tiled kitchen splashbacks with metro tiles today, half bond and didn’t once go outside in the pouring rain or even used a manual cutter. Just set up my little Briccolina wet saw and did every straight and L shape cut with no mess, no water everywhere and no dust. I had forgotten how good and clean these little wet saws are and how good table saws are if it’s a quality machine with a good blade in it!

    What blade do you have in it Ian or is it the one supplied that you use?

    I still have the standard blade but purchased the porcelain blade aswell when I bought it and still not used it Lee, still no chipping no matter what I’ve put thru it.

    I had the pro 750 for years Andy before I got my Rubi nd200, never missed a beat. Yes highly recommend the Briccolina, the fence cuts straight repeatedly.

    Ive got a plas plug master tiler, similar to that vitrex and I used to use it for everything, it’s great. I fact I had it out today for the first time in a year! The guard is long gone so it’s not one for indoors anymore. I also had small table top types. That little one looks nice.

    I find it a bit fiddly using a table top cutter like those above.
    They tend to run out of water by the time I get to the end of the tile. :rolleyes:
