Diamond blades for Raimondi wet saws

We have produced a brief video to describe the various wet saw blades we sell and how to change them and maintain/dress them to prolong their lives.

See our video here

A regular operator error when using wet saws is not dressing the blade frequently. This means the diamonds are not properly presented to the material being cut, the operator then tries to force the blade through the material and ends up shortening the life of the blade

Dressing stones are very cheap to buy, for example see our selection here

BOTTOM LINE:  LET THE DIAMOND BLADE DO THE WORK

Cheshire Construction pick up their Pikus 105

 

Phil Symms of Cheshire Construction & Coatings couldn’t wait to get his new Raimondi Pikus 105 wet saw delivered the next day, so he collected it in his Discovery!  The PIKUS is an ideal machine for the work Phil’s tiler wishes to do in cutting porcelain tiles circa 600×600.

Staff at Tilers Tools were amazed when Phil opened the back of his vehicle as it was already full of tools and equipment, however as the second photo shows, he managed to get the PIKUS 105 and all his tools in the back – talk about driving a TARDUS-like vehicle!

Cheshire Construction undertake building refurbishments and Phil can be contacted on 01942 74441, email; philsymms@icloud.com

Imex levelling and measuring

Tilers Tools announces new distribution arrangement with IMEX – Tilers Tools is delighted to announce it’s latest distribution agreement with IMEX, the world leading manufacturer of laser levels and measuring systems for the tiling, landscaping and building markets.  These high quality tools and equipment are an excellent fit addition to Tilers Tools extensive range of products manufactured for professionals and fill a gap in the TT portfolio really nicely.

Stuart Middleton Managing Director and Jim Stott, Sales and Marketing Director have been on the lookout for top quality laser levels, measuring systems and tape measures. They had undertaken considerable market research to identify global market leaders and IMEX was top of their list when they visited the tool fair in Manchester where IMEX were displaying a good selection of their equipment and tools and attracting a large audience.

Tilers Tools announces new distribution arrangement with IMEX

IMEX is an Australian manufacturer and are renowned for their great design and robust build quality so they are an ideal fit with Tilers Tools.  We will be stocking a large selection of the IMEX range which can be bought through the usual Tilers Tools channels online (www.tilerstools.co.uk), by telephone (01565 344 860), email (sales@tilerstools.co.uk) or visit our extensive warehouse at Appleton near Warrington at WA4 4QT (but be warned, the large range of goods on display is very tempting, and Stuart makes a mean cup of coffee!).

Tilers Tools are able to despatch items for next working day delivery.

Stuart Middleton said; “I am delighted that IMEX has agreed to appoint us as their distributers.  Their dedication to high quality manufacture and great design makes their tools and equipment ideal for professionals in the tiling, landscaping and building sectors.  I am confident we will see strong demand.”

Jim Stott said; “The design and quality of IMEX products means they sell themselves. I am sure that IMEX products will be increasingly seen on building and landscape projects being used by professionals”

Most versatile multi-line laser available.  Imex laser line level, one horizontal and two verticle lines.  Choose red or green – the green gives greater visibility.  The ultimate choice for tilers
LX3D IMEX Three Dimensional Line Laser

We had a visit from professional tilers while we were setting up the IMEX display stand and sold three of the top of the range green laser levels before we had finished setting up, such is the stand-out quality of the IMEX equipment.  The LX3D is available here

Tilers Tools are part of the Aquacut Group of companies comprising Aquacut Waterjet Cutters and Step Fabricators, TT Trims and EMCO entrance mats

Stuart taking delivery of his brand new PIKUS 130 Wet Saw from Tilers Tools

Stuart Bray, owner of SB Solutions, is increasingly in demand for domestic tiling jobs around Cheshire.  Stuart decided he needed to buy a new Raimondi Pikus 130 wet saw to help him achieve a professional finish with his prestigious projects.  Stuart visited us in our Appleton warehouse and examined the various saws we offer.  He thought long and hard between the ZOE 130 and the Pikus 130 wet saw and decided the Pikus 130 was the machine for him.  Both are excellent machines which are capable of years of faithful service.  Jim Stott, our National Sales and Marketing Director offered to deliver the machine but after Jim had demonstrated the Pikus’s capabilities, Stuart was keen to start using the machines on site, so Jim helped load the machine into Stuart’s pick up!

You can contact Stuart on; stuartbray1@hotmail.co.uk

RAIZOR system. New equipment for cutting and bullnosing large format tiles

Raimondi recently launched the new RAIZOR cutting system and the POWER RAIZOR cutter.  These exciting new products are taking the market by storm and demand is high from professional tilers.

The RAIZOR cutting system comes in its own convenient carry bag and includes;

  • two rails which when joined together can be used to cut tiles over three metres long
  • a cutting head and
  • pliers for tiles up to 5mm thick
  • optional extras include a one metre extension to the rails to enable tiles over four metres to be processed and heavy duty pliers for thicker tiles

The POWER RAIZOR is for use on the RAIZOR cutting system above.  This assembly comes complete with 110V grinder, diamond blade and various tools.  The POWER RAIZOR will make light work of dry cutting tiles.  The assembly can be set up in pre-selected angles of 90 degrees for straight cuts, 45 degrees for mitres and 180 degrees for horizontal cutting or for attaching a diamond wheel to enable bullnosed edges to be created

From early demonstrations to professional tilers there is great excitement about the products and these systems are flying off the shelves, such that supply is struggling to keep up with demand.
