My last 3 blades have been the Pearl P4. I'm sure there are other good blades but Dal tile keeps the Pearl in stock so for me convenience is another reason I keep buying the Pearl.

You can try the vinegar but I wouldn't try the muriatic acid. You may have to replace the grout in those areas.

I've used hot glue several times to hold rails and moldings in place. It grabs fairly fast, usually 10-15 seconds.

That's a broad question. Herringbone can be run square or on a 45 with the room. Usually it's run on a 45 so you see the pattern. So, you mark and cut the tiles on a 45.
