this is a very large and very clumsy saw that is very messy. you really need to use it outside and this is not always convenient. the finish cuts are no better than I can achieve with a angle grinder. it just seems a over complicated tool that is unnecessarily taking up to much space on a bathroom refit, I have gone back to the faithful dry cut angle grinder with a good quality blade. all my straight cuts I can do fast and efficiently with my rubi ts 40

for the price excellent
If you were a professional using it every day it would get worn out quickly. Most of the machine is heavy duty but some parts like bearings on the blade slider are poor though.
Biggest problem is the mess it makes by launching water behind the machine. it really must be used outside and you need a hose to clean up afterwards. Obviously machine is fairly large so needs plenty of space for use and storage.
When the blade gets worn out you get poor cuts and jamming. new blades are 1. expensive and 2. hard to find as it uses an odd size spindle for the 200mm blade. this means you have to buy the vitrex ones as they are the only ones that fit it.
Careful positioning of the water pump is essential to get enough flow and the hose position is important too. Instructions are about as much use as a chocolate fire guard about this.
Similarly useless is the plastic 45 degree guide. this is flimsy and doesnt fit properly into the guide rail. It also moves about left and right once fitted. better results are achieved by drawing a line on the tile and lining it up by eye.
Overall its a very good DIY machine for the price. The price for a professional one of these machines is many times more.

Great for big tiles.......but
Easy to use tile cutter, powerful enough. My only gripe is, WHERE CAN YOU BUY REPLACEMENT BLADES?!?!?!?!?!?!?!
Seriously, Screwfix don't sell them, the Vitrex site doesn't even advertise the Tile Saw Bench, never mind a replacement blade!
Can anyone help?????????

good for the money
in my opinion this is a great entry level saw to get you into the buisness!! it will cut tiles upto a very respectable 720 mm get yourself a good blade fitted on it and there will be no stopping you!! great value for money in my opinion considering next step up is the rubi bridge saw which is priced at ££££££££££££££ alot more

Is it possible to cut a window out of the middle of a tile using this machine?
I noticed in a video that I viewed about this machine that the cutting blade can be moved up and then lowered again. So I wondered if I could use this movement to cut windows out of tiles.
Does the Vitrex PRO 800 800W Tile Bench Saw 240V include the side table for larger format tiles as per the manufacturer's web site?
I just purchased one today. No it didn't come with the extension table.
