Tile Experts Please Advise on Cutting Problems
I am cutting my slate 12x12 to 6x12. The small $80 dollar wet saw I have can do this but I can't get the fence to fasten down exactly were I put it. It doesn't move but there is a slight warp in the decking and I think it is causing the fence to move off to the side by about a 64th or a 32th of an inch before it clamps down. When my cuts are made the square shows that there is a smidge of a problem. So while I believe the sides are parallel, the angles are maybe a degree off. I realize these tiles aren't airplane machine parts, but I really like precision. BTW, the tiles are square before cutting.
I am doing a herringbone pattern. My area is 6-1/5' x 7'
1) will this screw up my layout at 1/4" grout space?
2) do I need to buy a better saw to get these cut correctly?
3) what brand of saw does one recommend for under $300?
Thank you very much for your time.
