Long ago I used Risso saws. I loved the fact that they always cut square,and could be banged around without worrying about cutting out of square.

Downside to the Risso,HEAVY....and....they use their own pump,which is a bunch of rubber flaps encased,which is then spun via belt drive. Chitcan the stock pump,and purchase a submersible pump.

Lastly,the Risso Saws are just as easy to clean as any other saw.

I use a Risso AA Super for my day to day cutting. I also have a Rubi rail saw that I use for the larger tile. Although the Risso is heavy, it is built like a tank. They are built in the Oakland (CA) area and are a well built saw. My saw is over 20 yrs old and I am on my 2nd pump. $100 gets you a brand new one. There aren't a whole lot of service centers for the Risso.
Let me know if you have specific Questions
