24" is the recommended largest size square tile because the reach of the blade to the support column is about 13". Having said that if you figure out a way to work with a longer tile that would be lifted by the back lip of the sliding table you could rip up to 12-1/2" off a tile longer than 24" but you wouldn't be ale to split tiles in half larger than 24". The Dewalt Model# DWC860W Wet Tile Circular Saw is a better choice.
Hi. Just looked at my saw that is about 2 years old. It looks like thin wall pvc tubing. The ID is 1/4 inch. OD is 3/8 inch
No, you ought to replace the damaged blade!
If it is 36"x36", the answer is "no". One of the dimensions should be 24" or less!
It depends but there are wet tile circular saws available for large format cuts. The Dewalt D2400 has a max reach of just about 13" so they state you can rip a 24" tile in half. To rip a few inches off a larger tile the long direction is possible in theory but not recommended. It would cause water to run off the piece to the floor and would require two people not to mention potentially causing damage to the saw itself. The Dewalt Model# DWC860W Wet Tile Circular Saw is a better option.
call a local tool rental shop
It takes blades that fit a standard 5/8" arbor and spins at 4200 RPM. The outer half of the blade guard comes off very easily (you have to remove it to change blades). I added some photos. There is not a lot of extra length to the shaft. You could probably remove the stiffener plate - and that might get you 3/8" to 1/2" total thickness.
yes. like butter
I have owned my saw for about 2 years. Mine came with a DW4764 blade that is labelled as XP4 (abrasive) for use with Ceramic, Porcelain, Granite and Slate
