Can I cut 24" porcelain w/ this saw?

I need a saw that can handle 24" porcelain tile. Will this saw be able to handle it? I don't need to do many cuts, but I think extra blades will be needed. What spare blades should I choose?

Yes. I have a quarter inch, 24" piece of scrap porcelain tile to prove it. Just completed two bathrooms of the 24"X6" porcelain planks. Used fence also. Only needed the one blade it came with for 126 square feet.

Answer: 
I'd say yes it could, but you won't be able to use the rip guide on cuts bigger than 9 inches. The table itself is only about 20 inches wide.

Hi:
Yes, you can cut porcelain tiles size larger than 24". But you need two people to work together. One people hold one side of tile, the other hold the other side.

Answer: 
It can, but the working surface is not terribly large so stability of larger tile is a concern. Building a table extension jig would be useful for multiple cuts.

I have this saw and it cuts thick granite 12x12 tile like nothing with no strain on the motor. 24 inch tile is big but I think if you built an extention base to support the tile overhang you would be fine, just take ur time.

Answer: 
No a 24” porcelain tile would be too large for the R4020 7” tile saw. It has a 12” maximum diagonal type cut capacity, and an 18” maximum rip type cut capacity.

Blade too close to table surface?

This question is from 7 in. Job Site Wet Tile Saw
Asked by
Pittsburgh, PA
Read all my Q&A
January 31, 2015
I just got this saw, and when assembling it, the blade appears to rub against the left (fixed) side of the table surface. It seems like there's a spacer or something missing, or the saw is horribly misaligned with the table surface, but I don't see any way to adjust it.

I have the inner washer, blade, outer washer, and then finally the nut on the arbor. From the manual, that looks like the only things that belong on there.

Any thoughts on what might be wrong would be appreciated, because I really need to get to work on this bathroom floor.

Answer: 
The blade that came with my saw was warped, which causes a section/sector of the blade to interfere with the left side of the table. (The warped blade also produces excessive vibration when operating.) Manually rotate, with the saw unplugged, the blade a full 360 degrees to determine if you have the same issue.

I have the same issue. Just unboxed it on 11/7/2015. Blade rubs against table just like yours. Unfortunate. Ridgid should disclose this as a known defect. I DO NOT RECOMMEND ANYONE BUY THIS SAW UNTIL RIDGID POSTS SOME SORT OF PUBLIC ACKNOWLEDGEMENT AND RESOLUTION.

Rated 3.9 out of 5 by 141 reviewers.
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Wanted to like it This was the most expensive bench top saw they sold. I bought it thinking I was getting a great saw. Everything about it was top notch. However, when I turned it on to cut, water shot all over me. I couldn't see the line I drew on the tile to make an accurate cut. And the saw quickly used all the water in the reservoir. The saws I have used before all used a pump to wet the blade. Now I know why. I will never buy another saw that uses a simple water bath to wet the blade July 30, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by THIS SAW WORKS FINE THIS IS MY SECOND SAW AS I SOLD MY FIRST ONE WHEN I FINISHED MY FIRST HOUSE. NOW I AM ON MY SECOND HOUSE AND I JUST FINISHED PUTTING 12 X 12 PORCELAIN TILE IN THE ENTRANCE TO HALLWAY. CAME OUT NICE. ONE REVIEW SAID THAT THE FENCE MOVED WHILE CUTTING TILE. THAT IS BECAUSE THE WHEN YOU INSTALL THE HANDLE TO THE FENCE YOU HAVE TO PUT THE WASHER ON THE KNOB SIDE NOT THE BOLT SIDE WHERE IT SLIDES INTO THE FENCE. I ATTATCHED A PIC TO SHOW THE CORRECT INSTALL ON THAT. EVERY SAW CHIPS TILE FROM TIME TO TIME AND YOU ALWAYS PUT THE CHIP SIDE UP AGAINST THE WALL WHERE THE BASEBOARD COVERS IT, SO I REALLY DONT KNOW WHAT THE PROBLEM IS. TILE ON October 14, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Works quite well I bought this saw on Memorial Day even though HD didn't have it on sale. I used it this past weekend and loved it. I used the saw to cut plank porcelain tiles from Italy and it worked flawlessly. I agree that the guide is not perfectly true (parallel) to the blade and so whenever I tried using it the cut would go off the line. I found it very easy to do straight cuts free hand. People who complain of chipping probably are trying to force the blade which will chip porcelain for sure. I also flipped the tile around and did a small cut at the opposite end of the cut and then flipped it back around to make the long cut. 100% of the time the saw would break at that cut and the break was always on the scrap piece versus the piece I wanted to use. Concerning getting soaked: Not a single drop of water got on me. I placed the tile on a low level table on my deck and bent over at the waist to use it. Beforehand, I simply wore a towel around my waist and all water spray went onto the towel. I will also admit that the miter adapter didn't work so well and I had a tough time using it for 45 degree cuts. Again, freehand seemed to work best for me here. Footnote: Less than 3 weeks after I purchased this tile, HD put the tile on sale for $28 less than what I paid. I called them and they promptly sent me a $28 gift card. June 22, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Major step up from the bottom end, Having used what looks like a plastic copy of this machine, I can only say that the solid aluminium construction of this machine is a revelation. I have been cutting firebricks for a special project, and I have made 1/16" parallel slices of 1.5" thick material with no real effort. Great tool June 7, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by This product is simple to use This saw is easy to assemble and set up. I like having the option for a stand. The saw also has the great adjustable base to help you cut 45 and 22.5 degree angles. I wish it had a water hose hook up so you did not have to fill it up or worry about it. July 25, 2016
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by You get what you pay for The tile saw has no pump, just a water reservoir that the blade spins through. Throws water everywhere, you need a rain slicker to operate the thing! Tile chips easily even when going slow. Even soft material like marble breaks before cut is finished. I should have spent an extra $100 to get a better quality product.... May 17, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Tile saw Love it. Great saw for great price would highly reccomend it. May 10, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Stay Awat From this Saw This saw is a train wreck to use. The bracket that holds the spray shield is thicker than the blade or exactly as thick and it is difficult if not impossible to get a even a six inch tile all the way through the blade. The guide moves when you try to clamp it into place. The guide is also slightly out of parallel with the blade and chipped the ends off tiles as they squeezed through. The tile "pusher" is too small to accurately guide a tile larger than 6x6 through the blade. Might as well take off the spray shield and guide and free hand everything through. I will be taking this back! February 18, 2016
