Answer: 
Depends how many cuts per tile you are doing but for the most part you can cut 50 to 100 tiles by the time it starts to wear out ...you will know as the blade will take longer to cut.

Answer: 
I'm sure it would depend on the size of the tiles, but I cut approximately 300-4inch tiles installing a back splash and the blade was still cutting as smooth as it did when I cut the first tile. It's a high quality blade.

Answer: 
On 19 inch porcelain tile it lasted about 3 tiles before it was noticeably dull, but if you dress it with the QEP rubbing stone every few feet it will continue to cut like new.

Answer: 
I couldn't get a clean cut out of the three 1" mosaic tiles I tried. I put this blade back in the box. You would think a new blade would go right through the tile. I used a Rigid prior to this and it was good for 40 cuts before getting to dull. This one couldn't make it through the first.

Answer: 
Thank you for your inquiry.
We do not have a life expectancy on our saw blades.
The life of the blade depends on the exact type of material that you are cutting, general blade maintenance, handling and storage and how often the blade is used.
If you have any questions please call our Customer Service (866) 435-8665.

Answer: 
The QEP7 is too coarse to cut glass, QEP makes a blade designed to cut glass tiles, model # 6-7006 GLQ. With the difference in the shapes of the glass, tile vs. bottle, it's a trial and error experiment. Good Luck and I hope this helped.

Answer: 
Yes, go slow, cut face down and I used a piece of cardboard between the tile and saw table. The cardboard would get soaking wet, but it absorbed the movement of the tile.

I've read that a glass blade is good for onyx because it chips easily. Would this blade be a good choice, if not then what would?

Answer: 
A diamond glass cutting blade would be ok, QEP makes a blade for glass cutting, model # 6-7006 GLQ. I would suggest using the QEP7 first on a scrap piece of onyx and good quality painters tape on the line top and bottom to avoid splintering and safety reasons. If QEP7 doesn't work out then purchase the diamond glass cutting blade. Good Luck and I hope this helped.

Answer: 
ok, i asked this question. I decided to try this blade to cut my onyx tile. It worked beautifully! You have to be careful and cut slowly but I had no chipping at all! This blade gave me better and cleaner cuts than the factory edges. So if anyone wants to use this blade for onyx go right ahead!

Answer: 
Thank you Jane for your inquiry regarding our glass cutting blade.
This blade has not been tested with Onyx. As you know this product chips easily.
You can try either our glass cutting blade or our 'Black Widow' blade. We would recommend that you cut the tile slowly. We cannot guarantee that this will cut the onyx well, but you could cut a test piece

Rated 4.0 out of 5 by 44 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by This blade did all the cuts in my entire kitchen project? I bought a second blade but will be returning it because I only needed one. I cut 3x6 glass tiles for a backsplash and it worked great. Just go slow and it will work great. May 14, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great tool Professional results This blade easily made 50 cuts through glass subway tile without chipping . Did my back splash with it. Bought a second one to finish another 40 cuts. Worked great just go slow and let the blade do the work and cut tiles face down. Great tool. April 8, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by should have purchased from the very beginning of the job. works great on glass tiles. I bought this saw half way though the job. I wish I had it from the start. March 29, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Cutting glass back splash. Not happy with this blade cutting glass. Kept chipping my edges. I switched to my original blade purchased with my wet tile saw and had no problems. I returned this blade. January 19, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Good Cut but not completely chip-free on glass subway tiles. This blade saved the day for me when I was unable to cut my glass tile on my wet saws with the blades I had. (They were not specifically for GLASS to be fair). They were chipping the glass badly. I bought this blade after reading the reviews. It did a very good job but still left minor chipping. Most places where you would have to cut are either covered by a switch or receptacle plate or a caulk line. If you do have to leave a cut exposed you will have to polish the cut edge (which you would have to do with ANY blade). I'm not sure why some of the reviewers have complained about the blade getting dull after every few feet of cutting? A diamond blade has to cut in a specific direction to keep fresh diamonds exposed. If you install it backwards it will dull quickly so possibly that is what they have done? There is a direction arrow on the blade that shows which way it should turn. A good blade for the money in my opinion! November 30, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Fantastic blade...ultra smooth cuts! I am a glass artist, not using this for tile installations, but instead for cutting slabs of kiln-fired glass for jewelry. I have tried many other tile blades, and each one has chipped the edges of our glass, which means we have to grind it on another machine before putting it back in the kiln for a final fire polish. This blade is amazing. We purchased one initially, and it was a great investment...reasonably priced, but there was absolutely NO chipping whatsoever on the glass. We have since bought two more of them. They are long-lasting, and the cut is perfect. We're using it with the little Ryobi saw we purchased at Home Depot. I only wish they made a larger one for our other tile saw. I used to work in flooring at Home Depot, and teach the tile classes. I can imagine that this would be the perfect blade for someone doing a backsplash with glass tile. You usually hide your cut edges under trim, but with this blade you could have way more fun with your designs. It's amazing, and I recommended it wholeheartedly! November 16, 2011
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Kitchen - Diamond Floor 2014 The blade was easy to install. The cuts on the tile was nice and made it easier to install. June 18, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by QEP7 Diamond Blade Being a novice working with ceramic tile, the QEP wet tile saw equipped with the QEP7 Diamond blade made my work look like a professional did the installation. May 6, 2014
