The Felker tile saw is a product from of the Granite City Tool company. It was made specifically as a tile cutter, which would cut tile of all sizes. This saw is both a dry and wet tile saw and are used often in a professional environment.
The main benefit of using the Felker is that the tile tools are portable. They are extremely lightweight, which makes it much easier for people to carry them around a job site. The tile saw can handle tile flooring that is 13 inches both wide and long, which can cover most jobs, especially when the motor is able to handle wet conditions.
It is not just tile that the saw is able to handle as it can also cut through stoned flooring. This is the Master Professional version that is able to handle the two different types of flooring and there are two different models to the series. However, the two series are not as lightweight as its smaller counterparts but this is made up for by being able to cut as deep as 3 ¾”, rather than the ¾” or 1 ¼” depths that the original versions are capable of.
The Master XL versions of the Felker saw have blade shaft locks. These make it much easier and safer to be able to remove and replace any blades. There are also guards that tilt up to help protect the components during use. These are lighter versions of the popular professional versions and still cut just as deep. The capacity is just as long too but you are looking at paying a lot more money for the safety features.
The final type of Felker tile saw is the X3 Plus reviewed by Band Saw Report, which has a Baldor motor. It has a higher torque than any of the others. The blades comes with a water pump to help protect it and still cuts just as deep as the other higher end saws. The saw is a little heavier, which is why you can buy a stand with it. This stand has wheels to make it easier to move around your site or just around your home.
There are many different types of Felker tile saws to choose from and it is very important that you look at all of the features and also consider what you are going to need. If you are looking at something for a hobby then you are less likely going to need the higher end versions and you may end up over spending.
