I too am the proud father of a 74 lb ramondi, i love it, it can keep up with larger saws, the only down fall i find is as mentioned, the 7" blade has a 1" arbor not the standard 5/8, so u can seperate the wanna be tool supply from those who a true tile tool vendors! MIDWEST TRADE TOOL BUTLER,WI (HEY UPS GOES EVERYHWERE)800-830-8665 "DAVE JOST" AND COMPANY KNOW WHAT THEY ARE TALKING ABOUT OH YEA ITS ALSO UNDER"TILETOOLS.COM" WISCONSIN STORE TO MISSOURI USALLY I HAVE MY BLADES ETC IN BOUT 2-3 DAYS THE ITALIANS HAVE MADE THEM A DECENT LITTLE SAW AND I ASK U FELKER/MK FANS TO DO SOME OF THE PLUNGE CUTS ETC THIS UNIT MAKES EASY, LETS SEE?

wet saws

Hello Everyone,
I just joined this forum. I am a 20 year professional in the tile industry and I am CTEF certified.
does anyone out there have a Raimondi exploit 70 wet saw? I got one for free that was missing some parts so I ordered everything I need, got it all cleaned up and the pan powder coated (unfortunately they make these out of steal) so it is pretty much like new. my only problem is the wiring. the switch and pump get wired into the black box on the back of the motor and I cant figure out what wires go where.
also I have been looking online at Ghelfi saws but cant find anywhere to buy them. does anyone know where they are available?
thanks much

Hi Matt, welcome to the forum.

Here is the user's manual, there is an electrical schematic on the second to the last page. Not sure if that will help you. If nothing else, couldn't hurt to have the manual.

hi Gregg,
I did look at that but it is like hieroglyphics to me. but I do appreciate it.
I am hoping someone has one and can remove the cover on the electric box and send a photo.
thanks anyway

Hi Matt and welcome to the forum!

I've merged your thread into this old thread which is discussing the exact saw that you had mentioned. Also if you search on "Raimondi" and "exploit" you'll see more posts on this saw. I don't know if any of them will be helpful, or not, but it's worth a try.

That is about the simplest motor wiring schematic I have ever seen. If you can find someone that half understands it should be easy to wire. In fact it is so simple that I would be concerned the schematic is simpler than reality. The table below implies they use the same motors for both 115V and 230V. If so, then the motors will have additional wiring that allows the motor to be configured for either voltage. (There are also some obvious mistakes in the table.)

I've got an old Exploit 50 that would be the same, but it is not near me at the moment. Let me see if I can get a picture in the next couple days.

As for Ghelfi, they are not sold in the US yet. We are working with them to get things off the ground, but it takes time to get going. Were you looking at the Shark (Squalo)?
