    I've got numerous wooden door casings to cut around, ready for tiling. I've seen people using in the past a type of angle grinder with a blade attatchment but I do not no what these are called or where I am able to purchase one. Any suggestions please?

    You are probably referring to a diamond blade fitted to (usually, a 115mm) angle grinder. You need a continuous rim blade, and will have to pay good money to get a good one.

    If you don't have a small angle grinder but you have a jigsaw, you can get tile cutting blades for jigsaws that work well for cutting ceramic tiles.

    Alternatively, you can cut the bottoms off the architraves using a Fein Multimaster or an equivalent tool. Some people, though, regard this as a less than ideal approach.

    The cheaper alternative is the Bosch PMF180, much discussed in the Tools and Materials section (qv).

    I've not used one, but it's probably perfectly OK for DIY use.

    I do use the Bosch blades, however, because the price of the Fein blades is iniquitous.
