Customer Questions & Answers

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

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?
Asked by: Anonymous
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.

can i cut glass tile with this blade?

i have mosaic tile consisting of glass, ceramic and granite/stone. will this blade work?
Asked by: gogo
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.

will this fit on my makita circular saw

Asked by: tony
If your Makita saw is designed for blades with a 5/8" arbor hole in the middle of them and will accept a 7" diameter blade, then yes it will.

What about travertine/limestone?

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?
Asked by: Greg
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.

The blade cut 12"x24" porcelain tiles very easily, almost like cutting wood with a regular saw blade. I have not seen any dulling of the blade during my use cutting the tiles for my bathroom.

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 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 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 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.

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.
