    Hi guys. I'm starting with tiling as I realized I enjoy it a lot :) . Please I need help with choosing the right wet saw mostly for cutting the tiles edges to 45 degrees ( jolly edges).
    What saw would you recommend according your experience?
    What is better: portable saw or table saw? Diffrence between them ?
    Was looking at sigma jolly 9M and rubi DC 250. Would it be a good choice?
    Thanks a lot

    Saying that tho I'm looking at a getting a rail saw like the raimondi bolt or pikus as the sigma can be tricky sometimes

    Experience with rubi rail saw? As pikus is quite expensive.What kind of saw should I go for? Rail or table? (Pikus/sigma). I feel kind of lost.

    Some will say it's best to do it by hand with a grinder

    Ok, how about cutting a tile in the middle ( still talking about wet saw, need a clean cut) And from cut side I need jolly adge ( or mitering or however it is called, I think you won't be able to do it by hand with a grinder

    It's all personal preference I have a dewalt d24000 and a sigma 10m and i still want a pikus or similar but then again I have some sort of medical condition where I'm never happy unless I'm buying tools haha

    Does it matter which make of rail saw I buy? Are they all same?For what reason do you want pikus ? There are many rail saws an the market. What advantage does it have?

    I actually want a raimondi Zoe But after seeing the size and bulk of them I would have to settle for a pikus coz it's more manageable but also they look very sexy lol

    Tested the Prime this days,great machine,have power enough to cut 30mm stone,nice cuts.I have to work out with water,seems not enough or come out in wrong place.
    The problem is I can't move the water,is fixed.
    Another problem need to be sorted is the extension table,I hope come with machine but not.All in I think is good investment. IMG_1611.JPG

    Could someone please explain to me how a small table top wet saw is worth a grand, or is this a wind up? @antonio@antonio?

    I have a Belle rail saw, which is basically a rebranded Battipav, and it does jollys (or mitres) like slicing butter.

    Machine Mart sell the Belle range but I do believe you can buy direct off of them too.

    Mine was £22..... Blade was £12. It works and thats all I need it to do.

    But looking to upgrade to a variable speed Titan. Thats going to set me back a HUUUUUGE £45 from Screwfix. 3000 to 12000 RPM.

    That'll be two grinders for less than £100 with blades and enough change for a chippy tea on friday.
