    Been given a small powered water fed tile cutter but it needs a new wheel

    First time i've had to purchase one so not sure which to go for see the link http://www.plasplugs.com/acatalog/Diamond_Wheel_Tile_Cutter_Blades.html
    the standard diamond for all jobs or the porcelein diamond (80mm)?

    the tile im worried about is http://www.wallsandfloors.co.uk/cat...tiles/19281/?gclid=cmdbifdz_l4cfqb3wgode3kafg as it has a ceramic top

    Any thoughts?

    what do you think of this? http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Spectrum-...sc-Blade-/131110422180?_trksid=p2054897.l4275

    From your title I thought it might be blades for your chariot wheels, quite hard to get in post Roman times ;)

    Unless you are cutting porcelain tiles buy the standard replacement blade from the original maker.

    Normal tiles are ceramic with a coloured glazed finish, porcelain are the same throughout and hard as nails a normal masonry drill will not even start to go through them :!:

    So unless you plan to use porcelain the normal cutter will be fine.

    I wouldn't mine owning a chariot! i'm not clearing up after the horse though.

    Ok that does make sense, I just didn't want any chips and if the porcelain was of a finer grade it might make a difference.

    And thanks for the original blade tip.
