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.

Answer: 
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.

Rated 4.5 out of 5 by 31 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Totally worth the money Bought this for a bathroom remodel to use with an inexpensive Ryobi tile saw I purchased. A great blade will make even an inexpensive wet saw cut well. Cut through travertine stone and ceramic subway tile smoothly and easily. Wouldn't choose any other blade. July 5, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great blade, smooth cuts Bought this blade based on previous reviews, and over all price vs value. I put the blade into my wet saw and after literally hundreds of cuts on porcelain and ceramic tile, some of which was large format, the blade stills cuts like butter. July 12, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 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. November 9, 2012
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great Most tile saws come with a standard blade that is on the cheap side and may work fine for 1 or 2 cuts. In my opinion the quickest and easiest way to improve your saw's performance is to get a good blade like this. Even on a cheap tile saw this will make a loads of difference. I've since upgraded my tile saw but continue to use this blade. Highly recommended. April 11, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great blade Bought a QEP wet saw the stock blade wore out quick and bought this blade works great even if there is light chipping March 25, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Not very good blade, disappointing! I purchased this blade based on reviews and specifically for porcelain floor tile. Not at all happy with the blade. The blade chips the tile and does not give it a smooth cut which is what I need. Maybe I just have a defective blade but it is really junk! It is no better than the $10.00 blade which came with the saw. Really disappointing as I have used many QEP blades in the past (4") which cut great! March 5, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Cuts tiles like butter Not that I was unhappy with my current Qeb brand cutting blade that came with my 650 XT I bought at Home Depot as it was doing a pretty good job but as soon as I installed and cut the first tile I knew this wet cutting blade was going to be a fantastic addition to my cutting needs. The Black Widow Diamond Blade cuts like butter no chipping, no breakage. Great blade fast cutting and smooth.. August 27, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 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. April 1, 2014
