I am sometimes asked about what tools I really like to work with. So I decided to give some of my reviews of some of the tools I like to use on my projects.
For all the tile projects I have done, I love using my Imer Tile Saw. It has a table design that makes it easier to make precise cuts. It has a “Radial Arm Saw” design, which means your tile stays flat on a surface and the saw slides.
I have used other “Lower Quality/Home Depot Special” designs that have the saw stationary, and the table slides into the saw. These type I found weren’t reliable in making precise accurate cuts. Any when your a perfectionist like me, you expect more from a tool to perform.
Like I said, I’ve used it on all my tile projects. I have never had a problem with it. The Imer Tile Saw is portable and has more than paid for itself. I have cut all types of tile too.
Slate tile can be really hard on a tile saw, but with this tile saw it really has held up. Some of the cuts have to be cut precise like the tiles cut around toilet flanges or around outdoor columns. People are amazed to find out I used this saw to make these circles. A good example of this is found in the Slate Tiled Steps With Porch. Take a look at the column detail pictures.
