I've started laying out and cutting tile. Got a Rubi DT-180 7" Evolution saw with factory blade that I'm struggling getting clean cuts without chipping (porcelain). So far I have only cut tiles that will be on the edges/covered up. Any thoughts/techniques I should know to get less chips? (I've sharpened multiple times with the dressing stone...)

What margin should I keep on horizontal and vertical planes around the floor to wall transitions? I've read 1/8" and 1"4", which is kind of a big difference.

Trowel size: The flooring will be roughly 3" x 5" smushed hexagon (pic below). https://d2bnvhcdayi5wl.cloudfront.ne...%20Lit_web.pdf What size trowel would I use for this? (I would like to avoid purchasing a bunch of sizes if I can).

Any special considerations/tips to manage the matting that is keeping the mosaics together?

Thanks!
