    Just wondering what I should expect to pay for a good blade to cut porcelain tiles? It'll be a 4.5" blade to fit my grinder.

    The guy in one of the local tile shops showed me a £30 blade he "sells to all the professional tilers." I've seen a diamond edged blade in toolstation for £3. But I know you get what you pay for - there must be an upper limit where there's no value add it's just extra cost.

    Can someone recommend a good blade that will be available in a local retailer - screwfix / toolstation etc.? (my tiles are 59x59 porcelain and from memory either 9mm or 12mm thick)

    Also they tend to be thin blades are they typically mounted with a backing plate?

    A premtool blade from our sponsor @Pro Tiler Tools@Pro Tiler Tools is very good value for money, and cuts porcelain well.
    Speak with Sam, he’ll put you right.
    No backing plate required, think they are 1.2mm thick.
