I needed a tile saw in a rush for a job and there were none of the professional brands available so I got a cheap one. Here are some tips to get the most life out of a cheaper model. Just a couple of notes. The flower pot added to the motor fan intake does help prevent dust going in but it may not be worth it. There is no air intake into the motor and the motor itself is sealed. I did not realize this until I did mantainance! Therefore just cleaning the dust off the fan and its blades regularly is probably better than having the pot on the fan. Also, some remay cloth (light white gardening cloth for going over plants) works wonders to stop spray hitting things behind the saw. Note! on some materials, sometimes on stucco, the spray mark is nearly impossible to get off! So remay (held on with some clothes pegs on the end) can prevent a lot of damage! It can also prevent the rare events where a stone chip goes "ping" and flys away at speed. By the way, the blades that these things come with reflect the price. When it is replacement time buy a higher end blade. Twice the price, lasts 3 times as long and cuts 1/3 quicker! Thanks Brian
