The SKIL wet saw is for small DIY projects. If you’re on a budget and would like to tile, this is a great value that can get the job done.
At the $100-$150 price range, you’re know you’re getting a basic tile saw. However, for a project like a small bathroom remodeling, that’s often all you need so there’s no need to spend more.
This will pay for itself in 2 days if you avoid costly rentals.
The water tray is small (you’ll have to fill it up every 20 cuts)
It does spray water every now and then
The guide is weak
Blade will probably need to be replaced after a 150-200 sq foot job
Difficult to get the fence to line up on non-fence cuts
Easy to assemble
Straightforward to use
Cleaning is no problem if don’t let the sediment pile up
Easy to make straight and angle cuts
The fence works well for straight cuts

You can’t expect to buy a $100 tile saw and get $500 performance. Let’s be real, this isn’t a professional model – or even one for a big job.
However, if you just have a small kitchen backsplash job or shower retiling, this is a perfect buy. I’d say it’s a good, cheap tile saw and a good value for beginners or DIYers.
