A tile saw is one of those remodeling
tools that you don't ordinarily
use enough to justify buying.
Even a cheap tile-cutter costs
about $550, plus another $150 for
a diamond blade. And for small
jobs, the rental fees, plus the time
it takes to send a helper out to
get one, can quickly eat into the
always-too-slim profit margin.
To the rescue comes Makita's
model 4190D cordless cutter.
Makita equipped their 9.6 volt,
33/8-inch cordless circular saw
with a diamond blade, and added
a simple water reservoir with
enough plumbing to deliver a
trickle of water near the blade.
Presto, they created the slickest,
little tile saw you can imagine. It
will even cut glass. Best of all,
