Need help cutting beveled edges on porcelain tile outside corners.

I'm beveling my outside corners as well. The problem I'm having is that the 10" blade flexes out as i cut the bevel.

I have a Lowe's Kobalt 10" sliding wet saw. It came with a Kobalt 10" continuous diamond blade. I'm using it on 16"x32" porcelain tiles. The tile is clamped, upside down (the finished side down), on the sliding saw table and positioned so i leave a factory edge of about 3/32".

How do i keep the bevel cut straight and true...
  • use a longer diameter washer to secure the blade and lessen the flexing?
  • use a 7" blade guessing that a smaller diameter would result in less flexing?
  • use a better 10" continuous diamond blade?

thanks

1. Maybe.

2. Maybe, if your saw will allow.

3. Probably best choice.

4. try to cut more slowly so's not to flex the blade.

My opinion; worth price charged.

I'm going so slow that it already take me about 10 to 20 minutes to bevel cut 32 inches - including going over it multiple times trying to get the beveled edge to be consistent along the 32 inches. At this point, i think getting a better 7" or 10" blade will help.

Any ideas on a better 7' OR 10" continuous diamond blade for porcelain that handles bevel cuts better?

Nelson, if you'll go to the Advanced Search feature and type in blade you'll find a good deal of discussion. Not always agreement, but you can get some suggestions that may be of benefit.

My opinion; worth price charged.
