I need to know what kind of blade to use with the wetsaw when cutting glass tiles. I was told at 2 DIY centers that tile nippers and a scoring blade would do the trick. WRONG!  It just shattered the tile or chipped it badly. I've decided to buy a small wet saw but want to purchase the right blade. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

RE: Cutting Glass Tile
Hi, I personally have had success cutting glass tile on a standard tile blade on a wet saw. According to the following site, however, you should use a diamond electroplated glass tile blade.
