Jerry the Tile Guy

Today is the day for pictures. Jerry Nebel has sent pics of a bathroom he recently completed. Beautiful work. Really pretty tile.

I have, of course, loaded the pictures onto the site and listed them in the Pro Album.

After I got everything uploaded and described it as stone, Jerry emails me and tells me it's all porcelain tile. Back to the drawing board.

Not meaning to take anything away from Ted, there are other wedi sites. The one in the U.K. is quite informative.

Thanks guys.
Sorry it has taken me so long to get an answer to the questions.

Drew, the tile were those sizes and a rectangle tile (12x18).

The design was done by the home owner. Rob, is an Architect.

Trask, do you use a dressing stone on the saw blade?
I recently purchased a larger saw for cutting big and hard to cut tile. New saw has a 10" blade. I have found that when it seems like porcelain tile are cutting real hard. It is because the saw blade is getting "caked up when cutting porcelain" Just a few cuts into a dressing stone cleans up the blade and see if you don't notice a better cut.

hey Jerry where ya been?
ya I use a dressing stone on a pretty regular basis, but a firebrick, or on our silent core, a cinder block works almost as good. Have you used MK,s Hotdog blade on porc.?
