  • Ridgid 7 in Tile Saw r4007 and riipping a 24 inch 2x2 matrix

    I would like to rip a 24 in matrix of 2x2 tiles using the 7 inch Ridgid Tile saw. Problem is that the saw has a 12 inch bed which means the tiles would flop over the bed. The saw design works for a monolithic 24 inch tile but not a matrix of tiles.

    I am thinking of supporting the 24 inch matrix with a piece of 24 inch plastic. But that means I have to tilt the saw head up. That is possible to do with the plunge adjustment. I have two questions:

    (1) Is it okay to run the saw that way - with the head tilted up so that it clears the piece of supporting plastic.

    (2) I there another way of cutting this 24 inch matrix short of cutting it in half and then ripping it.

    thanks

    It wont hurt the motor, as long as water doesn't get in it.

      For my mosaics I usually use a piece of backer, drop it on the saw bed, and run the saw through it once. I use FiberRock cement board so its nice and flat and smooth. It leaves a small opening just for the blade. This works great for cutting those little pieces like glass and marble 5/8x5/8 sheets. No more pieces falling into the blade opening in the tray and binding up the saw. Perfect cuts too. I usually dont even adjust the blade depth, I just leave it alone.
