    Ive done lots of tile and have a tile saw with a diamond blade. I need to cut 8 or 10 pavers. Will a wet saw (tile saw) cut them? Thanks for any help...

    What kind of blade do you have on your tile saw? How big of blade is it? How long does it generally last you?

    jreiff,

    10 inch diamond blade -slotted. I haven't kept up with the number of stones per blade. Every job has a new one figured into it.
