Special Buy Price $99 + Free Shipping

Not the all-time low of $80 for the previous version of this set from about 5yrs ago per the forums.

I was in the market for a new tile saw. This comes with a stand and includes a blade. Great price when compared to the saw and stand on their own.

Power and reviews are good compared to others in this price range.

I grew up installing tile and would love to buy this but would only use maybe every few years now. Still tempted though. I like the fact that it can do some of the larger sizes and the miter guide is a decent feature

I'm tempted just to have one. It would pay for itself doing one backsplash.

I could really go for one with a sliding tray.

But honestly you can make some insane cuts on pretty much any size tile with these base model saws if you're careful and creative about it.

You'll get cleaner cuts and just as quickly with a manual score and snap tile cutter, and no wet saw mess. For bathrooms, the only time I use a wet saw is for notches where I'm not cutting all the way across a tile.

Is it possible to do an entire standing shower using just the snap tile cutters versus a wet saw? I gotta redo my shower also but never tiled before

Yes and no. The snap ones are really quick and easy with no mess and really clean edges (after some practice), so you can do it right there without any fancy water spray collecting setup, but they are basically limited to whole cuts all the way across a tile.

So depending on your tiles and layout, they could do it all, but it'll get interesting if you have to cut a notch in the edge or corner of a tile. For me, that's where a wet saw comes into play, making partial cuts into a tile - but there are other methods for making cuts to go around things from hand held coping saws (terrible), to tile nippers, to angle grinders...

Thanks that makes sense. But this wet saw can only do 90 degree cuts right? Like corners and such. Would it be able to cut circular for tile say around the toilet flange or drain?

Wet saws like this are great for cutting a tile to fit around a toilet flange. What you do is mark out your circle, then make a series of parallel cuts up to your marked line and about 1/4"-1/2" apart resulting in a bunch of fingers that are easily just snapped off. Clean up, if necessary, can be then be done with some nippers.

I only have on repeat shower to tile. I can rent a small MK tile saw which seems quite superior for 50$ for the day

I'll need to make quite a few straigh cuts, maybe 4-6 notched ones, and the mixing valve and shower head circles.

I figure a tile snapper may not be enough, but the MK is quite better for me needs than this?

Nope, the score and snap cutters do the whole tile or nothing. However, the cut you need depends on your tiles and where they'll end up in relation to the plumbing. I was just sent some pictures of a bathroom floor with what look like 6"x24" tiles and the toilet flange cuts were really simple; two straight cuts butt up to the flange and a little bit of work with the nippers to make room on tiles next to the flange.

Remember that the toilet covers up a lot of area so you have a ton of leeway and error forgiveness with these cuts.

The MK you are referring to is probably better, but the Ryobi would be sufficient. You'll likely need to drill with a diamond bit for the shower head and the mixing valve will be dealt with like a closet flange. Small cuts that can't be done with the snapper, you could get by with an angle grinder - but larger cuts can develop too much heat, dulling your blade and discoloring the tile.

But it really comes down to the size of tiles and the layout. Large square tiles are a completely different challenge compared to small subway tiles.
