Saw blade

No I have not tried a MK Hotdog blade yet. I usually buy my blades at Masterwholesale and get a pretty generic type blade. I have not needed a new 10" blade yet. When I get 7" blades I usually get one that cost around $60.00

Carver

Trask, yes I have seen the Carver saw. $4,000.00 for a tile saw is quite a load, but a lot of thought went into it and from what I understand from the folks down there at Masterwholesale they are sell a couple a month. I almost purchased one. I was looking at the time for equipment to start doing stone profile. I really liked the layout of doing the profile cut with the router and upside down so they would be uniform cuts. At the time we were looking to set up an operation to do bull noseing for a retail store and firgured that with high volume this machine would work well and it would cut larger tile which we all are seeing more of.

In the end we decided not to do the thing with the store. I still wanted to be able to profile stone and cut larger tile so I purchased a new Pearl saw that can cut a 24" tile. Had it a couple months and purchased a profile wheel only to find out that it will not work. Can't drop the head low enough to cut with a 7" profile wheel on the saw.

Next time you are up this way give a heads up and maybe we can get together.

Jerry
