questions about mitered cuts

here's a good idea for a poll....

What do guys like better for making mitered cuts??

1) A miter block that tilts the tile up in the air at 45 degrees

2) A tilting motor that keeps the tile flat on the tray

with option 1 you can only cut on the edge of a tile not anywhere else on the width, but it might maintain a more square cut because the weight of tile keeps it straight...hmmmm

ALSO i'm trying to figure the best way to make "cork miters" or "quirk miters" as i've found on this site......particularly with porcelain tiles

do i cut 45 degrees, them make another cut to slightly square off the sharp edge, or do i try to use a diamond file or what??
My motto is "You can learn something from EVERY Job, and we sure learned alot on this one.....are we done yet?!!"

My QEP bridge saw tilts, my felker tilemaster I had to prop up the tile. Definitely like the QEP way much better.
Normally I just lay the tile on a bucket and get out my grinder. Easy to make any type or angle of miter you want that way.
