Our Score

Features

  • Size: 4.5";
  • Arbor:7/8"-5/8";
  • Suitable for: Wet and dry saw;
  • Maximum rpm: 8000-11000 RPM;
  • Application: Porcelain tile, Granite, Marble, Stone , ceramic and so on. 

Review

This is a must-have for your workshop whether you are a contractor or a DIY hobbyist. Because, this blade can cut tiles, ceramic, marble and similar hard and delicate materials without a wet saw.

If you don’t own a wet saw or just not feeling like setting a wet saw up for a small patch-up, at those times, just replace the blade of any dry saw with this one. As per the advertisement, from glass to granite, everything can be cut just the way you want. But I would recommend using this for softer materials like ceramic only

This blade is super thin (1.2 mm only at the edge) and super affordable. Just be sure you are using this blade with RPM that is recommended for it; other than, this blade may chip off faster than you expect.

Things We Liked

  • Reasonable price;
  • Can be used for wet and dry saw;
  • Universal use of cutting ceramic and similar materials.  

Things We Didn’t Like

  • The edge may chip faster if not used properly.

Features

  • Arbor:7/8"-5/8";
  • Maximum rpm: 6000 RPM;
  • Suitable for: wet saw;
  • Application: cuts Porcelain tile, Granite, Marble, Stone, Ceramic and so on. 

Review

First of all, this blade costs 4 to 5 times to the price of nameless tile cutting blades available in the market. But it is proven to have an extended life at least 4 times longer than any 10-inch blade of other manufacturers. Besides, to enjoy the advantages of a professional grade tile saw, you must invest in a blade that will be able to keep up with the pace of your machine. For that purpose, this blade is the best of its kind.

This blade delivers a wonderful performance. It doesn’t heat up much and cuts faster and leaves smooth craftsmanship. To get the best result, install this blade in a high-performance wet saw and run it at 6000 RPM (maximum). Don’t forget to condition the blade before using it for professional purpose. Many people regret buying this blade at first because they don’t know that it needs conditioning to sharpen its edge.

Things We Liked

  • Suitable for high-performance wet saws;
  • Superior quality;
  • Long lasting. 

Things We Didn’t Like

  • Needs conditioning;
  • Pricey.

Our Score

Features

  • Size: 7-inch;
  • Arbor: 5/8";
  • Suitable for: wet saw;
  • Maximum rpm: 8730;
  • Application: Glass Tile only. 

Review

Glass tiles look awesome if used thoughtfully, but can ruin your renovation project if not cut properly. These tiles are different than ceramic ones, hence needs a little extra care to handle. To get the perfect cut on glass tiles, professionals recommend using a blade that is made especially for glass tiles only.

This blade from QEP launched this blade within an affordable range to make small tiling projects flawless. Its 7mm rim leaves no trace of chips after the cut. Moreover, I have noticed, this blade cuts smoother if the tile is placed upside down on the saw table. Several hobbyists left a negative review about this blade after using it for cutting glass bottles.

In my opinion, if you use this blade for cutting glass tiles alone, then you won’t regret investing in this blade.

Things We Liked

  • Suitable for cutting glass tiles;
  • Perfect for small to medium projects;
  • Affordable.

Things We Didn’t Like

  • Can chip off if used for cutting anything other than glass tiles.

SKIL 7-Inch Turbo Rim Diamond Blade for Masonry
89%
Our Score

Features

  • Size: 7 inches;
  • Arbor: 5/8";
  • Suitable for: Circular Saws and Grinders;
  • Maximum rpm: 8500;
  • Application: Concrete, Concrete Block, Brick, and General Masonry. 

Review

For majority masonry works, professionals usually rely on abrasive wheels for cutting brick and concrete. But some parts of such projects may need more finished and smooth cutting of brick or concrete. To serve those purpose only, and for small DIY projects, this masonry blade is there to save your day.

This blade has a unique cutting-edge rim, that lasts longer than abrasive wheels as well. But the finishing depends thoroughly on the material you are using. From my practical experience, if you soak your brick or concrete block before cutting, it will be more convenient to cut those as they will form less dust and the cuts will be fast and smooth.

Things We Liked

  • Long Lasting compared to abrasive wheels;
  • Economical price;
  • Good performance. 

Things We Didn’t Like

  • No cons.

Review

For all those DIY projects you have been dreaming of to do in this summer, can be accomplished now with this saw from MK diamonds. This saw is good for cutting any form of glass.

Not only the finished cuts are smooth, but they are chip free too; so, you don’t have to hurry to clean up your workshop right after the operation. To make all the cuts virtually chip-free, metal bond and diamonds have been incorporated at the rim, a rare mix that can only be found in MK blade.

This blade is a bit pricey, but for versatile glass cutting, investing in this blade may save you from purchasing several blades different glass materials. Besides, its long-wearing performance makes it suitable for production applications.

Things We Liked

  • Suitable for a variety of glass materials;
  • Chip free cutting;
  • High quality. 

Things We Didn’t Like

  • Pricey.

Features

  • Size: 10’’x 0.060 inch;
  • Arbor: 5/8";
  • Suitable for: wet tile saw;
  • Maximum rpm: N/A;
  • Application: Ceramic Tile, Porcelain Tile, Slate, Granite, Terrazzo, Marble, Engineered Stone, and Similar Materials. 

Review

‘Buy once, and get replaced when expired’-sounds appealing, isn’t it? This blade with ‘J’ marked slots all around its rim comes with lifetime warranty and free replacement offer on any defect or wearing. So, apparently, you will purchase one blade, but can get that replaced with a new one absolutely free; that ensures using new blade forever.

You are supposed to get less dust from cutting tiles due to its identical slots. Those slots collect the residues as the blade cuts through the material and get cleaned by the water. It is an excellent blade that easily lasts several large projects. The price is on the higher side, but with a lifetime warranty, that shouldn’t be considered.

Things We Liked

  • Lifetime warranty and free replacement offer;
  • Creates less dust;
  • Suitable for demanding jobs. 

Things We Didn’t Like

  • No cons.

Review

Another great addition from GOYONDER is this red universal blade. Its identical ‘x’ marked rim delivers smooth finish on whatever materials get on its path. Cuts fast and leave a lot less residue compared to other blades of similar kinds.

It costs twice than the blue one, and the performance and wearing are twice as well. For cutting any tiles on any dry r wet saw, this is a quality product in the affordable range.

Things We Liked

  • Compatible to wet and dry saw;
  • Delivers smooth cuts;
  • Creates less chip.

DEWALT 4-½ Inch High-Performance Diamond Saw Blade

Our Score

Features

  • Size: 4-½ inch x 0.5 inch thickness;
  • Arbor: 5/8", 7/8;
  • Suitable for: dry or wet circular saws;
  • Maximum rpm: 13,300;
  • Application: for Masonry. 

Review

There is nothing to prove about the quality and performance of DEWALT products, as DEWALT is the leading brand of power tools, supplied worldwide. For this blade, the first thing I want to mention is, it’s affordability; unlike other DEWALT products, this blade is affordable despite being high quality.

This blade is has a satin nickel finish to make it last longer. Compared to abrasive blades, this one lasts 30 to 200 times longer for masonry work. Its diamond rim cuts faster and smoother even in years old concrete. The dust it creates is very few.

As per the advertisement, this blade is only recommended for masonry works. Some customer has mentioned impressive results in cutting tiles as well, but I don't recommend using a masonry blade for cutting tiles if you want a super fine finish.

Things We Liked

  • Affordable;
  • Lasts 30 times longer than abrasive blades;
  • Less dust. 

Things We Didn’t Like

  • Good for masonry only.

Features

  • Size: 7 inch x 0.5 inch thickness;
  • Arbor: ⅝’’;
  • Suitable for: wet circular saws;
  • Maximum rpm: 8730;
  • Application: for ceramic, porcelain & marble tile cutting.

Review

Looking for a budget tile blade just for a re-tiling project of your shower or kitchen backsplash? Then you can bring home this cheap blade from QEP with your eyes closed. Despite the cheap price, it is not cheaply made. People often underestimate its cutting capacity due to its affordability.

For me, it cuts fair for   project, may be better than some renowned brand blade. Don’t expect miracles from this blade, it will not last for years. To get the most of this blade, cut softer tiles like ceramic before cutting harder tiles like porcelain for your DIY project. Because, once it gets dull after cutting harder materials, you will not get a smooth finish on softer materials.

Things We Liked

  • Cheap; 
  • Creates a small amount of chip;
  • Great for small DIY projects.

Things We Didn’t Like

  • Not suitable for large scale projects.

Review

In youtube tutorials, cutting tiles looks easy for DIY projects. But only professionals know the best about which tiles need to cut with which blades and how much push is needed or how much water is required for cooling.

This blade from QEP has received the greatest reviews due to its cutting capabilities and affordable range. This blade easily outperforms some of the pricey blades of popular brands. Its super thin 7mm rim cuts seamlessly on soft and hard materials.

The rim has segments with a diamond-shaped hole at the end. This unique design helps to keep the blade cooler throughout the cut; in long-term, it extends the blade’s life. If not properly used, this blade may give out way earlier than expected. For this reason, I recommend this beauty only for masters who knows how a lot about tiles and blades.

Things We Liked

  • Perfect for professionals;
  • Affordable price;
  • Cuts faster;
  • Cuts granite and marble smoothly. 

Things We Didn’t Like

  • May wire out faster if misused.  

Types of Tile Saw Blade:

There are mainly two types of tile saw blades available in the market- wet & dry. These are basically diamond blades.

1. Wet Tile Saw Blade:

Wet tile saw can be used for any kind of stone cutting task. This type of ceramic blade needs to be used with water. So before buying this type of blade, you should be concerned about the source of water you can use.

Wet tile saw blade last for a long time as they use water to keep the saw cool during the use. And water helps to make a smooth cut.

They are also safe to use as they do not cut through your skin like other blades.

These blades are perfect for large projects. Specially a multi- purpose diamond wet saw blade is perfect for cutting tile, stone and fiberglass.

2. Dry Tile Saw Blade:

Dry tile saw blade can’t be used to cut every stone. They are handheld so you can’t control the cutting quality consistently.

You may have difficulties to have smooth edges for some projects.

But they are easy to set up, all you need to plug the saw in.

This type of saw blades are perfect for removing old tile to replace it. They are also great for cutting hard ceramic tile and other tile jobs.

You can use a diamond masonry blade to cut concrete, stone or masonry.

But whatever tile saw blade you choose, be sure to wear safety equipment before use.

How to Sharpen Tile Saw Blade: 

Blades of tile saw uses diamond grits to grind the material at high speed. And the diamond grits have the tendency to wear out by cutting any hard ceramic or other stone.

So you need to sharpen your saw blade often. Sharpening a tile saw blade is very easy and simple process if you follow these steps-

Step 1:

First of all, you need to reduce the water flow or coolant of the saw. Then adjust the valve til the flow reaches to opened half.

Step 2:

Now choose any abrasive item and dress your saw’s diamond blade. In that case, a grinding stone, a dressing stick, a soft clay, a chunk of concrete or asphalt or a breeze block can work great.

Step 3:

Next step is to cut your saw blade through the abrasive material for 4/ 5 times, now turn off your saw and the coolant flow and wait for the blade to stop spinning.

Step 4:

Now remove the machine from the power source by switching it off or unplugging from the circuit.

Step 5:

After that check, the edge of the blade has become free from diamond grit or not! For this, drag your thumbnail very carefully over the edge of the blade, if it is sharpened properly the edge will feel rough.

Step 6:

Repeat the whole process to get the entire edge of your tile saw blade is dressed & sharpened.

How To Change A Tile Saw Blade:

Changing a tile saw blade needs maximum of 5 to 15 minutes. You only need to be careful while handling the blade. Just follow mentioned tips and your saw will get a new blade.

Loosen the Locking Plate:

Firstly, you need to loosen the locking plate using wrenches to central bolt and backing plate.

Now lock long wrench against your saw and twist box wrench towards the right. Once the plate is loosened, remove the old blade.

Mount the Adapter Plate:

Now take the adapter ring and push it lightly into the central hole of the new blade. While doing this, make sure that the plate is flat & level.

Mount the New Blade:

Now that you have a new diamond blade ready to mount back on you saw, let’s do it!

For this, match the direction indicators of the blade with the direction indicators on your saw and place the new blade on the central shaft of your tile saw.

Mount the Plate:

After mounting the new diamond blade successfully, place the plate on the central hole, screw in its bolts and run the saw for testing.

That's it! Your tile saw blade is successfully replaced with the new one!

How to Buy Tile Saw Blade:

If you can’t decide to choose one blade from the mentioned list, you can also check these features of a good quality tile saw blade. Hope this will help you to pick the one for your tile saw.

1. Cutting Material:

First thing you need to think about before buying any saw blade is the cutting material.

That means you should choose the blade that your frequently used cutting piece needs. If you get the wrong blade for your cutting material, you’ll end up with a mess.

So for optimal performance and a long life of the blade you must select a blade that suits well with your cutting material.

2. Types of Cuts:

In tile cutting, you have two options for cutting- wet and dry. The type depends on the job requirements and Mason.

Some saws strictly prohibit wet cutting as they are electric power tools. Whereas some cutting, like concrete, requires wet cutting for keeping the tool cool.

So before buying your tile saw blade, check what the blade needs if it says wet you need to use water all the time during the cutting process.

3. The Speed of the Blade:

Speed of the blade plays a vital role in case of finishing and longevity of the blade. If you use the lowest speed, your blade can give you a nice and smooth finishing and also it’ll last for a long time.

But some material may need high speed to cut, for these type of material definitely go with higher speed.

That means the blade you’re going to buy must be able to perform on both high and low speed.

4. Segments Height:

Another important thing you should consider while buying a tile saw blade is segment height. A tile saw blade consist of many different parts that influence its performance like- cutting power, the concentration of diamonds and the quality of the blade. You should pay attention to every detail of it.

Conclusion:

The list of tile saw blades I’ve mentioned above are the most popular one for these days. You can choose any of them by your requirements and complete your projects nicely.

Besides, I’ve tried to give you other necessary information about tile saw blades that will help you to choose and maintain   saw blade properly.

But the most important thing is, you must take your safety issue seriously while handling with a tile saw or any other power tool to avoid any unexpected accident.

Hope this helps you.
