The average being 1/8 inch grout line which is pleasing to the eye.)
The wet tile saw is circular and cuts with water lubrication.
You can make straight cut with the tile saw only, not nippers.
It is suggested to rent a wet saw, if you don’t know someone that will share theirs with you.
Especially if this is a onetime project. If you plan on doing more projects buy good wet saw.
(Wet Saw has a range of prices but will be a couple hundred dollars).
One hundred and fifty dollars is the average cost.
(For wall tile installation these maybe all you need, however you should always have additional cutters)
Practicing cutting on cheap tiles first with nippers and/or tile saw
(Snap/Rail cutter is usually about $20)
