Circ saw blade to cut quartz countertop??

Quote:NOPE, sky won't fall, but it'll sure get cloudy!   That's the main reason for water, dust suppression.  As a bonus, a solid rib blade used with water will leave fewer score marks on the cut end.   If it will be polished and exposed that could be important.

The metabo t13 leaves virtually no dust.   It's also a lot less messy than water for in situ cuts. And ya don't have to go get the water or freeze your hands off in it if it's wintertime.   With a blade suited to the material, a dry cut can be as smooth as a wet cut.

Not a lot of wetsaws will cut 48". 

Considering tmx is doing a one off 4ft. long, investing in anything but a dry cut blade for his tool is probably not prudent.

a trickling of water while using a Skilsaw is a better idea than a dry cut.  You mention the Metabo and how it performs at almost $500 it should do that.

Here's something I thought of and never suggested partially because I don't know what goes on where you are.  It might be worth taking the stone to fabricator to cut probably won't be much more than a blade and polishing kit.  I have been lucky enough to have a fabricator working down the street from a place I was doing and hired him for a tricky cut.  It took him a few minutes with the right tools and loads of experience.  I have done the same with other jobs.  Then again it is common to see work trucks in the areas  I have houses.  I once had a tiled entry done by a guy working on a job down the street the cost was just a bit more than it would have cost me to come back another day to do it myself.

In some instances it might be, in others not really  
No

Then there's a risk of electrocution if one puts together their own rube goldberg wet cutter and doesn't know what they're doing or makes a mistake.

If expense is your overriding criteria, a dry cutting blade on your existing saw or grinder is going to be the absolute cheapest option. It's not even close.   After that it just becomes an exercise in ........."well, ya could do this,  or that, or maybe this other thing- if that's really important to you " .    It's not a one way is better than the other kind of problem.

The task is just not one that offers a universal  "best tool or solution" for everyone.

Bob , you’re missing the point entirely.  

There’s what should be, ………… then there’s what is.   One really needs to keep that in mind when recommending something potentially lethal.
