  • 7 in Tile Saw R4030 rip cutting

    i just purchased the rigid 7in tile saw R4030. it states that it can rip cut up to 24". The tiles i have are 4in x 23in. I need to rip cut some down to 3in x 23in but the table isn't 24in long so when I place the tiles on the sliding table they extend beyond the front of the table by approximately 6in. They don't reach the blade so I could cut them like that.
    Is this the way I am supposed to make rip cuts with this saw: with a portion of the tile, extending off the front of the table and unsupported by the table? just doesn't seem right to me and this isn't addressed in the manual.
