Lori, Blade manufacturers and marketers like to pretend there is some mystical blade needed to cut glass tile, so they market a blade in their product line which they declare is for glass. My advice is to try whatever blade you have before investing in a special "glass blade" - which always sell at a premium price.
I think most of your problem is the inferiority of the 7" Rigid Tile Saw.
Yes. I can cut 1/8 inch wide pieces out of tile without chipping. The secret are the relieve slots in the blade.
If your saw will accept the tile it should work.
Check the arbor on your saw, it could have runout. My blade did not last long on porcelain tile and started chipping before I could finish one job.
Yes, but I wouldn't use it dry. Blade heats up too quickly and becomes softer and bendy.
These two blades are formulated differently. The Ridgid 7in Premium Tile Diamond Blade #HD-CJ70P is best for cutting porcelain tile blades using a wet tile saw. On the other hand, the less expensive Ridgid 7in Continuous Rim Blade #HD-CT70CP can be used dry on a grinder or circular saw. The premium tile blade produces cleaner, smoother cuts compared to the other blade.
No it is a wet saw blade. It will warp. They make blades for angle grinders that will cut granite and marble even. Slow and steady is the answer to practically perfect cuts.
I guess you could, but I would choose the DeWalt Turbo blade for that application.
Mine did not last long cutting porcelain tile in a wet saw.
