MK Diamond 158252 MK-145 Video Review

Here’s what one customer had to say about the MK Diamond 158252 MK-145 1/2-Horsepower 4-1/2-Inch Wet Tile Saw . . .

“I bought it for a project that involved cutting 13 x 13 tiles for a fireplace. As long as you take your time, keep the water reservoir full and feed the tile slowly you should get good cuts. I’ve already made at least 200 cuts on large tile and the blade is still cutting like it did out of the box.

I really like the design; it’s just like a little table saw. Inside of 5 minutes I was making all kinds of cuts with great results. I really like the -” (Thomas Zachary)

Conclusion

The best wet tile saw reviews are pretty positive, but this saw is quite messy to work with, although the results are good. Also, it is made out of plastic rather than metal, so it isn’t incredibly durable. Other than those two criticisms however, customers were full of praise for this little saw. It is easy to use and very portable, and it makes accurate cuts of varying angles. You might want to think about cutting each tile half way from both ends to minimize chipping .This is a great little wet tile saw for the occasional DIYer at a great price. If you have a lot of tile cutting or require a lot of detailed or fancy cuts then this wet tile saw probably isn’t for you and you will need to trade up .
