FS: PRO MK660 wet tile saw setup (SE MI)
Just picked up a Dewalt tile saw to allow 24″ tile cuts – no longer need my MK setup.
It is the MK660 saw with tub (motor replaced 2 years ago)
newer blade (used one job)
45 degree bevel gauge
45 degree angle gauge
MK GFCI adapter plug
HeavyDuty Little Giant pump
The beauty of this saw is that it is QUIET! It is an induction motor and is virtually noiseless when running idle, unlike the cheaper saws that are based on grinder motors and scream when idle running.
This is a Pro-grade 7″ tile saw capable of cutting 14″ tile at 90 and 10″ tile at 45.
This entire complete setup would cost you over $800 if bought new online, I am selling the entire kit for $400. It is VERY clean – was cleaned after every use. Absolutely nothing wrong with it – just no longer need it.
If you have any tile work coming up, you’ll not be disappointed.
Call with any questions at 313-283-5908.
How ya like the new dewalt?
Not sure yet - I picked it up used and it had been dogged! Guy must have never cleaned it at all.So it's totally taken apart and in the process of a complete deep clean.Got a great deal on it and can use the capacity on a job coming up in a few weeks. Looks to be a great design and has some nice features. Even though it's got a crazy wingspan - it breaks down into manageable chunks and the motor/rail unit itself weighs only 70lbs. or so.JT
Sold - to fellow breaktimer, happy to report...J
So how are you liking the DW?[email protected]
Seems I have some blade wobble for some reason - when I bought it - I figured it was a bent blade. It'll spin up to speed and run pretty true - true enough for a clean cut, but it's weird, when you are nibbling a cut a bit, the blade will "float" back and forth in a wobbling way.Kind of screwed up, can't seem to see and play or run out in the arbor by hand, and I've tried a few new blades.Hate to pay someone to fix it for me, but I certainly don't expect to find anyone to ask about it that would have any clue and help me figure out what new parts I need.I used it for a job and it did the job, but can't allow it to just be like that.I've only got $368 into it, so I figure even if I have to put another $1-200 in it, I'll still be into it for a good deal.Takes some of the shine off though.easy to carry in 3 trips - non of them heavy, unlike any other saws that'll cut 24" tile.JT
Look at the interface of the backing washers and the blade. If the washers are distorted or have a chunk of something stuck to them, it will distort the blade when tightened.
And don't go ape when you tighten the nut.
I pretty much like mine. It's fairly easy to use if nothing else and quite accurate especcially when compared to the ols Felker I had been using for 25 years.
I'm not thrilled with the bulk of the main motor frame. It just seems that there is no 'good' way to carry it.
Great tool though. If they were to seek input from a couple hundred tile guys after using it, they could tweak the design and come up with a very nice machine.
Washer is in great shape - I cleaned it and rubbed it on some 600 grit wet dry so it's smooth as can be.The way it's doing this odd wobble - I'm thinking it's something in the motor shaft or something - it's def. not right - something's wacky.JT
It's basically a skill saw or table saw motor I believe.
It's not a Baldor driving a cross shaft that's for sure.
It's wierd a bit after using a saw for so long that was powered by an industrial motor.
Good luck figuring it out. Have you tried posting at John Birdge forums?
It is just a universal motor - like what's in their portable tablesaws - you are correct.haven't posted any questions yet - need to get it figured out before I get some crazy tile job that'll require it cut the best it can. I was just installing a 12x12 ceramic floor job - again, it did the job, but I could imagine if I was cutting some fancy $$$ glass tiles it could cause some chipping or inconsistant cuts.JT
