Rubi Diamond Viper 10 Inch Diamond Blade Review
I had the chance to test the Rubi Diamond Viper 10 Inch Diamond Blade several weeks ago.
It performed beyond my expectations.
If you've ever used a wet saw to cut ceramic tile, then you know it's not a big deal for most diamond wet-saw blades to cut a standard tile.
After all, most ceramic tile is just clay that's been fired in a kiln to become hard. The issue is that there are materials that are much harder than fired clay.
But before we get into that, I feel you need to know a little bit about tool reviews.
Know Your Reviewer
I hope you do realize that many of the current tool reviewers out there, and I'm talking late 2016, are individuals who have never worked on a real paying-customer job site, never have worked in construction as a full-time job, and most definitely do not have decades of real field experience.
Always be sure to visit the About Us page on a tool review website and look at the qualifications of the person writing the review before you put much faith in their opinion of the tool.
Some reviewers write a review without even using the tool. They open it up and take some photos or shoot a video in their workshop. I take the tool and USE IT to see how it performs. But I digress!
I've used wet diamond saw blades for over thirty-five years. The first diamond wet saw I had was a crude tool with a 5-inch blade.
My first experience watching a wet diamond saw blade came in college about forty-four years ago when I saw one being used in the geology department at the University of Cincinnati. A professor was cutting a rock sample in half. I was stunned a saw blade could cut a rock. Prior to this I had only seen saw blades cut wood.
I decided to cut different types of tile, a piece of thin granite and a full-sized granite rock. Yes, a real rock.
