    She likes riding in the wheel barrow. Lol
    Never had so much fun in a bathroom. Had a ledge we wanted raised up with corner seats.
    I was going to use block but my buddy - old timer tile guy has his own method i tried. Frame it out and pack it with deck mud. Came out great. Took six 55 lb bags.

    Its a long process between jobs. Working on the bench. All wall/vertical tiles will waterfall over top the flat surfaces. 20180801_143510.jpg

    So my 30+ year old MK 101 just died on me. Prolly the switch. But its a gotta have it now thing. Damn thing is a tank which is why I've been saying no to tile jobs. So freaking heavy it takes two peoples to move it.
    Any recommendations for a new saw? 20180801_165837.jpg

    I know you don't want a Ridgid E . rented one . Piece of crap.. My table saw stopped turning on .. The switch was loaded with saw dust .. Maybe the same issue with yours..

    Ern, I had an Mk 101 for a few months, but returned it because the track was binding up and couldn't get a good cut anymore. I am still looking for a great replacement so I am also paying attention to this thread.

    Found a used DeWalt D2400 tile saw with stand for $450 cash. Used on one job supposedly But no warranty so prolly just grab a 10" Kobalt from Lowes for $499. Three year no questions warranty. Has all the bells and whistles as the Dewalt has plus a collapsible stand with wheels and a hose you can use to clean off the tray. Best part is plunge cutting. The used one has no collapsible stand with wheels.

    Yup, the DeWalt is a great saw but like I said no warranty. I never usually buy an extended warranty but I did for another 3 years for 50 bucks, so 6 years no questions covers everything. By then I expect to retire. LOL
    Can't beat the collapsible stand with wheels vs the chincy stand on the DeWalt. Also heard bad things about the Rigid.

    When the big screen TV's came out i bought the warranty, a year later the tubes went .. Didn't know they sub the warranty's out , and the company went out of business.. Never bought another warranty since .. Good Luck with it .. PS: All Rigid stuff is junk..

    . Made a cut and the laser was spot on, perfect cut. Took me two hours to put it together. Getting the motor head on was toughest by yourself - five bolts. I think getting them really tight is key to alignment.

    Nick, that dang saw is awesome. I thought it would be underpowered compared to the huge MK motor. If I crank it up to 6 that thing will suck tiles into it...hang the F on! Lol
