The Dewalt blade you have on your saw now worked great Chad. I will try one of them sometime. Just put a new Barranca on my Target, So Im gonna have to wait till next year or so before I go trying new blades

Jon I just wanted to apologize for busting your chops about that free blade.
Chad, no problem I could understand where you were coming from at the time. By getting to try it, I would now buy one. I hope you get hooked up with a good blade. Knowing Rich, I am sure your T3 Razor is on the way or you may have it already. I know Jack speaks highly of the Barranca, have you tried that blade and where does he git it. I know I could just ask him, huh

Jon he gets that Barranca from the Tile shop in town. I used them for years and they are great I don't know why I tried to re-invent the wheel but I will see how this new T3 does.

I got one of the zipper blades after Bill recommended it here - cause I needed a new porcelain blade and wanted to try it out. I also didn't want to say anything about it until we had put it through the cycles and fully tried it out.

We've used it continuously for two and a half weeks now and the blade is still working as good today as it did when we first got it.

We've been installing 20" x 40" porcelain 1/2" thick and it cuts so easy and straight. We've used it with the saw on 110 and 220 and it just eats up the tile with no problem. I'll be getting a few more of these zippers!

John, I think that's the standard tray for the Super Tile Master.

On a side note, you get any damage in the tornado?

I'll take it a step further. This week I had some time off (still haven't dressed the blade-- it's like the energizer bunny-- it keeps cutting and cutting and...) and I've had some cut offs from blue pearl 3 cm slabs from a friend who had a stone shop back a few years ago. I decided to take the formica tops off a couple of store bought linen "cubbies" we bought for the bathrooms and make a couple of BP tops for them. That saw cut through the 3 cm granite like it was wall tile. 22" cuts like nothing. I'm bigtime impressed.

I got one of these blades on the way. Gona put it to the test real soon in the bullnose shop.

I use T3 blades now and many times open a new blade in the morning and toss it in the scrap pile 600-700 cuts later that day.

This weekend, FINALLY, after how many thousands of feet of tile, I had to dress the blade. It's back to brand new again!

I just checked the date on the beginning of this thread. 4 months of constant cutting, everything from ceramic mosaics ot thousands of feet of porcelain, to granite and marble 3 cm slab-- FOUR MONTHS-- before it had to be dressed. That's some kind of record for me!

Bill,

Is the kerf wearing down? I want to buy the blade but i do not like the harassing phone calls plus I get these pretty sweet blades as is. I am interested in the 4" blade for the grinder.

I've got both-- the 10" on the saw, and the 4 1/2" on the grinder, and no, it's not wearing down on either.
