Will this blade work with the Qep 3/4 HP, 4.8 Amp motor wet tile saw to cut granite?

This question is from 7 in. Black Widow Micro-Segmented Diamond Blade for Porcelain and Ceramic Tile

I want to cut 2" thick granite (staight cuts only) and the length is 16" for my bathroom vanity backsplash. I already have the Qep 3/4 HP, 4.8 Amp motor wet tile saw. Is this enough horse power to cut the granite and can this blade cut the 2" thick granite?

Answer: 
If the saw takes a 7 in blade it will cut granite. Just feed the granite slow and make sure your water level is at the correct level.

Answer: 
It can be used on granite, according to what the packaging says. It is part of the QEP series of blades. The hole in the center for mounting to the saw is 5/8" (16mm).

Answer: 
I have not attempted anything of that thickness but I do believe this blade is capable of cutting your material because you have enough horse power with your wet tile saw.

Answer: 
I'm sure the blade and machine are capable. If you can, do it in several cuts increasing depth as you go. Also make the cut slowly as need be, this will help you to keep from burning out the blade.

Answer: 
Any 7" blade will have enough clearance to cut through material 2" thick.
I noticed my 15 amp circular saw bogged down a little cutting through 2cm granite. To cut a full 2 inch thick piece could take a while. However, unlike wood, granite won't bind the blade so if you take it slow it should get through it eventually. Also, if you have any other saws with more power like a table saw or circular saw, Read More

Yes, the 7 inch Porcelain, Ceramic, Marble and Granite Wet Cutting Black Widow Diamond Blade will work with QEP 3/4 HP Tile Saw. There is enough horsepower in this tile saw to cut the granite, however this machine only has a cut depth of 1.25 inches which has no effect on which blade you are using. You may have to cut one side and then flip the granite over to cut the whole way through the 2 inch Read More

Do not force the granite through the tile saw, slowly ease it through letting the machine do most of the work. I hope this helps, please let me know if you have any further questions.

Yes, we used it on our glass mosaic tile. As long as you feed the glass through the blade 'face down' any chips will be on the backside of the mosaic and hidden from view.

Thank you for your inquiry.
Although this blade will cut the glass we would recommend our glass cutting blade 6-7006GLQ which is made specifically to cut glass and will provide a better quality cut.. This unfortunately will not cut the ceramic and granite well. We recommend that you contact the tile manufacturer for their recommendations for cutting their product.

Answer: 
Yes, if your saw will handle 7 inch blades. Just keep in mind that any tile you cut will need to be kept wet, so you might anticipate water getting into your saw. I have seen it done to cut stone.

What about travertine/limestone?

This question is from 7 in. Black Widow Micro-Segmented Diamond Blade for Porcelain and Ceramic Tile
Asked by
CA
Read all my Q&A
January 9, 2016
I'm working on two projects DIY one is complicated backsplash with travertine 3X6 tiles plus glass tile inlay (I have glass blade for the inlay). I got cheapy Ryobi 7" tile saw that is actually remarkably good except that the gate/guide is hard to setup. The blade it comes with though is not so great. Works but chips if you don't go real slow (except with the aftermarket glass blade which cuts like butter). Anyway, would this blade be good for cutting the softer stone or would it actually be overkill and/or cause more chipping?

Answer: 
We fitted this to our economy priced Plasplugs tile saw and got great results cutting porcelain, glass mosaics and metal faces kitchen tile. Just make sure you feed the tile/stone through face down on the tile saw and this will make sure any chips are on the back of the tile, not the front.

7 in. Black Widow Micro-Segmented Diamond Blade for Porcelain and Ceramic Tile is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 34.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great blade--reduces chipping Smooth fast cuts, but the real improvement was the reduced chipping. I have typically used the discount tool store diamond blades for my tile saw. I had thought the small amount of chipping was caused by the belt or motor vibration. However, I was rather surprised with how much this Black Widow blade reduced the chipping. For both porcelain and granite the smoother cuts were noticeable. I tried my best to take pictures of this, it's obvious on the porcelain tile, but harder to see on the granite. For only a few dollars more this blade is certainly worth the reduction in aggravating chips. Now I have to buy the 10” version.

I have a time and hand saver (using nippers) technique where I cut narrow strips of tile which I then used to nip into squares. But I realized that I could cut the squares on the wet saw. What I like about this blade is that it is narrow and does not remove as much material. It is also quieter than previous blades I have used. I am not sure how it would perform on thicker floor tiles and because it is such an expensive blade, I would switch blades before I cut heavy tiles. This is my second black widow. A friend cut heavy tiles with my first black widow blade and though it still cut, I felt the cuts were not as clean. I also make sure it does not sit in water and I oil it after every use to prevent rust.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from 7" wet saw blade I am a contractor who remodels kitchen & baths quite frequently & I'm always searching for good quality wet saw blade. I have tried all the major brands & some no name brands of wet saw blades & have found that most blades will chip & overheat after a 32" x 60" x 9' shower remodel. Based on my experience I can definitely say this blade moved easier thru the tiles with very tiny chips, sometimes I could not tell which side I cut! As for how long will this blade work so well, only time will tell. In my book if a blade can cut like this for 1 project that great.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Diamond Blade for Porcelain and Ceramic Tile Need to replace my 7" Diamond Blade for cutting Porcelain and Ceramic Tile. I using it to cut subway tile and the cuts a minimal of chipping. Compare to my other blade the Black Widow cuts were smoother and was were noticeable. I purchase other blade that wobble and this Black Widow was wobble-free when cutting.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Does the job cleanly The blade cuts well with very little chipping. However, for light duty work, there isn't much difference than your standard budget blade. The special cut outs are interesting, however, I'm not sure how much difference they make for typical home-owner duty cycle. If you are like me, you end up measuring and going back and forth to your project between cuts. This allows the blade to cool. So, I'll take the manufacturer's word for it that the cut outs allow cooling. If you have a lot of tile to cut in one session, then consider this for the cooling properties. Otherwise, the cutting action is pretty standard and does the job.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent upgrade for my old tile saw Bought a basic 7" Plasplugs tile saw from Home Depot several years ago and needed to replace the blade before an upcoming tile job in the laundry room. We're setting 18" noce floor tiles that are about 3/8" thick and this saw cuts them a lot easier than the blade that originally came with the saw. I wish I'd upgraded sooner. Blade was easy to fit and I have to apply less feed pressure on the tiles against the blade with this one. Much easier to work with.
