    Having bought a 115mm variable speed grinder for trimming and grinding porc. tiles dry I'm having problems with chipping, even if only slight. I bought blades that seemed to be well considered on this forum but they weren't particularly expensive. What would be the best diamond blade for dry trimming porc?

    I'd rather not say. The chipping is with one particular tile, Refin chromie, and not particularly bad and it might simply be the tile rather than the blade. Or me, although in the past I have used Bosch blades without chipping on porc. As I'm in Italy, can you suggest a good blade here?

    I don't think I asked for an expensive blade, just a good one to try as an alternative to the one I have.
    But I don't recall seeing too many diamond blades in Italy for 5 euro.

    shipping costs more than the blade ...
    but if he doesn't tell me what he's using
    I can't direct it to another blade.
    and an apprentice cannot advise.
