Although amateur & slow, I'm a fairly good tiler, that was before the nightmare day I purchased a bathroom's worth of porcelain tiles. I upgraded my disk cutter to an expensive Marcrist diamond blade (made for wet precision cutting of porcelain tiles). This has so far only managed to chip its way through a few tiles & that's on straight cuts, so you can imagine the devastation on mitered cuts. Please can any one recommend a decent diamond blade that will cut but not chip my tiles. Thanks.
