Thank, Elle, that helps.

I think I'm at a point where I'm ready to call it good. To be clear the chipping is better now than it was with the original DeWalt blade (original pictures). It's not...

To address the blade dressing issue:

No, I haven't tried that. Two reasons: I was trying to keep the blades as close to new as possible since I was returning them. Also since I had a clear...

I considered the issue of dirt/debris, and have been fairly careful about that. Also I'm measuring the wobble both on and off the saw and getting pretty consistent results.

Yes, I have repeated my measurements several times on both blades and they were always consistent.

I received my replacement blade (Razor T3) and it has a lot of runout, too. The cuts don't feel smooth - there is a ragged/vibrating feel to it as you feed the tile.

After 3 bad blades I know...

I would tend to agree but the two blades are significantly different in terms of runout, so if it were a motor / arbor issue I’d think they would be close to each other. For what it’s worth the “on...

Thanks for the suggestions.

I just spent an hour with the saw trying to figure out what is going on. Somewhat surprisingly the T3 blade has a lot of runout. It looks to me to be about 0.017” a...

Thanks for the recommendation - I just ordered one, hopefully it addresses my chipping problem.

OK, Zipper blade, but which one?

I realize this is a very old thread and they have added more products since 2011. They currently sell a black, a blue and a red blade. Can anyone comment on which (if any) is the original one...
