Does the blade cut terracotta tile without chipping or breaking?

Asked by Tigerp90 May 25, 2020
1
Answer

Yes. Excellent blade. Old dull blades chip. So long as its new it works fine. I redressed it a few times and it still works great.

Will this blade work with a Dewalt table saw DWE7480?

Asked by Tish May 16, 2020
1
Answer

You need a steady stream of water as you cut your tile or stone, so it would most likely short out your table saw motor. Not recommended.

Can I slice 2 to 3 inch agate rocks with this blade?

Asked by Skeeter October 3, 2019

Answer

No, it can't slice through an agate rock.

Will this blade cut 1/2 inch marble mosaic tiles?

Asked by Newbee September 3, 2019

Answers

I used it to cut porcelain tile and Travertine marble tiles, and it cut great. Some of the Travertine was 2" tiles with a scrim on the back. I had a bridge saw and took it slow, making sure to hold the tile in place so it didn't move as I cut. Probably a better way to deal with a tiny tile like 1/2" is to not cut with a tile saw, but to cut the scrim as close as you can to your dimensions and space the sheets as much as possible to adjust for any gaps. Depending on your application, this may or may not work for you.

Can this blade be used for dry cutting ceramic tile?

Answers

I wouldn’t recommend it. A segmented blade is designed to displace heat but without water to cool it, you run the risk of warping the blade.

Will this blade work on marble or granite 2" thick?

Thank you for your inquiry. No, the 7" blade will not be suited for this project.

Can you use a 6" blade? and also can you tell me the size of the ARBOR hole?

Asked by leslie October 5, 2017

Answer

Blade sized is based on the equipment manufacturer recommendations. However, if you choose to use a smaller blade, ensure arbor size of blade and saw are the same diameter. The arbor size of the 7" Black Widow Blade is 5/8".

Garbage!
Customer review from homedepot.ca logo
When cutting the end of the cut would always chip off. Every single time. My cheapo blade that came with my tile saw never ever did this.

I bought this blade as a replacement for the original Ridgid that came with the saw based on the reviews. Right out of the box the blade was chipping my porcelain tile much worse than the blade I was replacing. Up to an 1/8" chip!! Definitely not what I expected based on the reviews. I will be taking the blade back to the store today.

I am not a contractor. I am a mosaic artist and I use ceramic tiles. 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.

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.

(What's this)
We used this blade for cutting Marazzi porcelain tile 24”x6” with tile bull nose and for tiled splash wall. The blade did excellent job, leaving behind nice and smooth cut. With this blade we cut opening in floor tile for toilet drain (pic 1). For smaller curve cuts this blade is too big. Pic. 2. shows cut in tile for water and drain in vanity cabinet. In kitchen splash wall tile (pic. 3.) we used it for cutting openings for electrical outlets and lot of cuttings of this ceramic tiles.The blade did it's job on excellent. Even now although all worn out it still cuts the tile well, just not with perfectly smooth edge like before.

So the blade works really well. I had originally intended to use this blade with my Dremel ultra-max saw, but the arbors didn't match. No fault of this blade, mind you. This blade comes with built in reduction bushings that take it from 5/8 to 20mm to 7/8. The dremel saw uses a 7/16 arbor, so it was too small. Ultimately, I chucked this blade up in my Shopsmith and it worked great. The cut finish is really nice too. I used the old trick of taping my cut path out of habit. That has proven to keep from getting chipping at the edges which is super important for tile work. Overall, I like the blade. I'll get the bigger version next time.

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.

Cuts very nicely through the beach stones and quickly through ceramic plates. Needs to go slow through the granite rocks I've found, but it works.
