what type of diamond blade for tile roofs?


Hi there I recently picked up a older partner 650 12" cut-off saw and need some advice on what type of blade is best for tile roofs. I have only done repairs and have been using a turbo blade on my skill saw and would like to find out what you are using-thanks jason

I find that they are varyous prices but unless your cutting clay tiles stick with the cheaper ones as they do just as good a job.
Cheers

I guess you can use 7 1/4 inch concrete diamond blade. It will work well with a skill saw.

I agree if you are dealing with the clay tiles use the cheap ones.

Re: what type of diamond blade for tile roofs?


I really cant tell you a specific brand that I used to use but make sure it is a dry cut blade. I used to use a 15 amp electric grinder and I would take off the guard and put a 12"or a 10" blade. ( I don't think workers comp would let you get away with that now) We found the best blades were the segmented ones but they were also the most dangerous as they would "kick" when the blades were wearing out.

Re: what type of diamond blade for tile roofs?


I buy blades from National Diamond Blades... Right now they have a 30% discount on any blades. I can give you my provider phone number if you want to save money.

On my opinion and the ways i've used the blades its excellent it has double of the concentration of diamond.

So let me know
