[elky] Re: Foyer tile update

I have one of the larger table saw style, basically bought the one with the 
biggest motor because the table size doesn't make that much difference- bigger 
is better but when using 20 inch tiles I know most are not designed for that so 
it dodnt make too much diff.
It works great, never have used the breaker deals.

                 Big tiles go down fast.   Not much getting tiled anymore 
here. Even in expensive homes you rarely see a tiled shower anymore. Just 
too expensive. Most quotes for ripping out and retiling a shower here are 
in the 8,000 range. I have thought about getting into that... Even if it 
took a week that's still an ungodly profit.

                   As for cutting I prefer a bridge saw. I hate tile breakers.
