Any tools out there for cutting both metal and tile?

I'm going to be doing some tile work, as well as cutting some 1/8" steel square tubing. Weighing my options for both machines, wondering if anything out there does both. Anybody?

Hi LiquidBeef, welcome to the Community. Thank you for your question. It’s a good one. You didn't mention if this is a one time job, or are you going to do this often.


If this is a one-time project, I would get a 4 ½ inch grinder. You would use a diamond blade for the tile work and a metal cutting wheel for the 1/8 inch steel tubing.


Now if you need to make some complex or tricky cuts on tile, then I would get a tile saw or rent one. If you're planning on working with tile and steel tubing often, you will want to get both a tile saw and a cutoff saw.
