Adapt a 10" wet tile saw for a 7" ARCUS®
Masonry Diamond Blade for cutting curves.
To convert the 10 "wet tile saw use a 7" ARCUS®
Masonry Diamond Blade a small shim is placed
on the arbor on one or both sides of the blade to
retain the shape of the blade.
Since the blade is 7" and the tile saw uses a 10"
blade a platform is used to raise the height.
By adjusting the bevel angle from 5-10 degrees
to offset the curve of the blade you can get a 90
degree clean edge cut. Each saw is different so
do a test cut for your saw to determine this.
Set the blade 1/16" below the tile when cutting.
Stand at the side of the wet tile saw that is
stationary while the tile is moved through the
rim of the blade.
This wet tile saw uses a RIGHT BLADE that
turns in counter-clockwise revolutions like
a direct drive or sidewinder circular saw.
NOTE: The Contoured Shaped Blade is the
reason that there is a LEFT and RIGHT BLADE.
If you flip the blade like a conventional flat bade
the shape is going the wrong direction.
Use a LEFT BLADE when the wet tile saw
spins-clockwise like a worm drive or hypoid
