won't cut thru regular tile
I am using R4030 and trying to cut 12 X 24 tiles for floor. Saw cuts almost half way thru tile . Even when I turn tile over, it still did not cut thru totally. Finally I had to put two tiles together to get the top one high enough to cut thru. I just bought this saw and really like it when it did work with two tiles. Just doesn't seem like something is right about the setup. Any ideas. I would think I should be able to cut any depth but I couldn't find any instructions or videos on line that told me what might be wrong or how to lower blade or raise table. Can you help please?
Thank you for your interest in RIDGID.
From what you are describing, something is either damaged with the saws main arm, or it has somehow been assembled incorrectly, or you have an incorrect cutting wheel on the tile saw. We would recommend that you go back over the assembling process to insure it is properly assembled, or the tile saw should be checked by your nearest authorized service dealer to determine the cause.
If the sliding table is installed correctly and you have the stock blade in place, the distance between the fence edge on the table and the cutting wheel when the table is slid all the way back, allows for a 24” piece of tile to be placed on the sliding table, and the depth of the cutting wheel reaches below the surface of the sliding table, so the tile has to be cut all the way through when you make the cut.
