Cut a Radius in Ceramic Tile with a Wet Saw

Although wet saws cut only straight lines, they still can be used to cut a radius

hvt032.jpg

David Hart, Centreville, Virginia, writer and tile installer, marks the tile, and makes multiple straight cuts at different angles up to the line. He then uses nippers to bite off the tile following his mark. In this video he demonstrates this method as well as making a stopped or U-shaped cut with the wet saw.

For more tool and technique advice, read David's article Cutting Ceramic Tile.
