DIY How to Use a Wet Tile Saw | Workforce Brand Tile Cutter | Model THD 550 | 120V AC 60HZ 550W 4.6A

Updated: Feb 26, 2021



This wet tile cutter is a Workforce brand. It's lightweight small, safe and easy to use.


I placed the saw in my Rockwell Jawhorse. This ensures it's stable and not going to move. If I didn't use this I'd likely clamp it to a table to workbench to hold it in place.

This is the water tray. It just gently pulls out so you can add regular tap water to it.

I just use a water pitcher to fill it up.

The water will get murky from the tile cutting dust so I like to keep it clean and change it out regularly. I definitely empty the water tray, clean it and dry it after use.


The guide slides forward and back as well as left to right. It's a nice feature to have and keeps the cuts straight.

This will allow you to make angle cuts if you need.


The guide locks nicely into place.


Here is the power button to turn it on and off.


I used this saw to do both ceramic tile as well as glass tile. It made nice and clean cuts in a timely manner.


Notice the lack of dust and debris while cutting. These wet tile saws are very accurate and precise. I like them better than other alternatives I've used in the past such as scoring and snapping tiles or even diamond blade cutting wheels attached to a hand held angle grinder.


When cutting glass tiles with this I took care to take it really slow so as not to chip the glass tile.
