Petr,

Rail saw is rarely used because its a pain in the a$$ to set up and break down.

Currently, I use the Dewalt D24000 for everything. I do have 2 Makita grinders in the truck that we use for certain circle cuts, etc.

Dino, if you'll type husqvarna into the Advanced Search feature and ask for Titles you'll find a very long thread near the top of the queue with many pages of discussion about that saw from its earliest release.

I have dewalt saw, mk370, tomecanic 39", grinders, hydrohandle holesaws

The dewalt is great, T3 blade makes it even better.
Mk370 is loud, but cuts nice and its light. Mines beat though, halfway through its second motor and the table is sticky now. Time for a new one.

The Tomecanic cutter is ok, but not very accurate. It doesnt cut as well as some of the pictures ive seen of cuts made by different cutters here. Lots of the screws are loose/missing. I regret buying it and will replace it with one of the more popular ones.

My hydrohandle set is rusty/falling apart. I blame that on the helper more than the tool. Recently went to use it and I can see he's been putting it back in the box filthy and soaking wet. Not impressed

When I start replacing these ill pay more attention to what others rave about. Theres usually a reason.

I have a 1973 Gary. I hand him the marked tiles and they come back cut to the correct size in the quantity needed.

Sometimes I hear sawing, sometimes banging, occasionally cursing, but on the whole the tiles show up fitting just right.
