  • Ridgid Tile Saw

    I am looking to get a new tile saw and was in a HD the other day and saw the ridgid unit for only $699 bucks...Has anyone ever used the unit? I tried to get it priced on line, but could only find it at HD, is this unit sold anywhere else. I have an older target unit that cost around $1100 and I am all for cheaper tools as long as they work, any thoughts would be apprecaited?

    Do some searching on the forums here and you will find a couple reviews that will guide you in your purchase.
    "When we build let us think we build forever. Let it not be for present delight nor for present use alone. Let it be such work that our descendants will thank us for, and let us think, as we lay stone upon stone, that a time is to come when these stones will be held sacred because our hands have touched them, and that men will say, as they look upon the labor and wrought substance of them, "See! This our fathers did for us."
    John Ruskin (1819 - 1900)

      This saw works wellexcept for the fact that it throws an excessive amount of water ,so it prohibits it being set up indoors. So being in a cold climate like Maine,where I am, I have a difficult if not an impossible time using it when the temperature is below freezing.

        Most of the sizeable wet saws do throw a fair amount of water. I have never felt comfortable setting them up anywhere that I'd want to keep the floor dry.

        I haven't worked the ridgid model, but it would have to be pretty bad to be worse than most of the Felker, MK, and other 10" models I have worked with.

            I have used this indoors a few times now, well more than a few times. A sheet of plastic goes on the floor and a 5 gal pail to catch that little bit of run off water and your set. I'm sure you can modify for your likings, not all tools come out on the market being the perfect setup. But some can be close.... I personally don't get much run off water, but I will get some. Thats part of owning a wet saw, it throws water.....
