Snap cutters and grinders. I would rather carry 4 grinders than a wetsaw.

I've seen one guy who works a lot of commercial jobs do that. Only pulls out the wet saw for stone. Pretty efficient, and his cuts look great. Has a couple cordless grinders that have full time diamond pads on them to buff the cuts if needed.

Yeah, those work good. Anybody use the drill attachment that sorta looks like a mixing paddle, but it has a drum instead with plastic-fingers to scrape/clean the inside of a bucket?


Designed to be wet??
So thatís the reason I never had a problem with the old Jepson or MK tile saws?
I should ditch the Grinder?
And these are my only options as Iím allergic to the hassle of a wet saw.

If you still backboard your floors, an old grout float is good for bedding the seam tape. I like to use a belt sander and crisp my floats from time to time.

If you want to make tiling easier, get a helper.
These days, if my helper needs a day off, I'm off too.

And stop working weekends, stay home and go grocery shopping with your wife. It'll make next week easier for you.
