How To Use A Mosaic Wet Saw
and It's Uses

A mosaic wet saw can cut ceramic, marble, slate or porcelain tiles with very little effort. The diamond blade turns in water to keep it from overheating as it cuts the tile.

A wet saw is very useful for cutting tiles into small rods that can then be nipped into little squares.

Always wear your safety glasses to protect your eyes from flying water and debris. An apron can also be used to keep you dry as the water sprays up and towards you while you are cutting.

Using a push stick is also a good habit to develop to help you push the tiles towards the blade.
