    And the saw / grinder quality is critical too.
    A Sigma 10m9 or Raimondi GS86 with no wobble on the motor or spindle will always cut far cleaner than a saw with a wobbly motor/spindle.

    Depends on how deep your pockets are and what you want it for.

    High horse power and belt drive over direct drive,
    and more importantly a good quality blade.
    But a lot of blades now are more material specific, go to the Montolit website and view their blades, they have some very high end and excellent cutting blades. But they’re generally material and job specific.
    Personally, if I have around 2 dozen blades, and they’re all very different in different situations.
    They may work on one brand very well, but even when it’s exactly the same tile, if the batch is different, suddenly it won’t give a clean cut.
    It’s a minefield, and as everyone has said above, it’s our holy grail, all you can do is find the one that works best on that tile, that day!

    RUBI TURBO VIPER - TVA 115 Diamond Blade is good for dry hand cutting when attached to an angle grinder. The thin blade ,1.5mm removes less material and it generally cuts through most tiles be they hard porcelain or ceramic without chipping. That it is only 1.5 mm width makes it very useful in restoration work.
