    Like the grinder idea, never used it for this. I will get a blade or 2 real soon

    A continuous rim blade is definitely the ticket here. I’m can’t imagine trying to use a jigsaw (regardless of the blade type) to cut tile.

    I agree, don’t think I ever mentioned a jigsaw.

    I use grinder with diamond blade you can cut anything with it almost. Long as you have couple good diamond blade. there’s diamond blade for specific materials.I did tile for 3 years commercially so I cut so many pieces I’m so used to it. Prefer locking switch grinders hilti I had doesn’t lock but bosch locks I like that.

    I agree with you on that – I much prefer a locking switch grinder for cutting tile. I still use a grinder for 95% of my cuts…I have a few diamond bits that get used for shower neck penetration, tub spouts, etc.
