4" DIAMOND WET CUT BLADE

What does "wet cut" means? Does it mean you spray water on it as you cut? Will this reduce the amount of dust when compared to a "dry cut" but you end up with a messy wet sludggy floor?
Thanks!

That's the general idea.

Virtually eliminated.

If you're a sloppy workman, yes. If you use common sense, the residue is easily confined to a suitable container. Nothing wrong with working outside if the weather is nice. HTH

You use a tool designed for wet cutting.
They say, "You can use this blade in your hand-held electric grinder, circular saw or table saw." Nope, you need a tool that gets wet and doesn't electrocute you or ruin itself, not just any cheap blade spinner.
An air-operated tool would be appropriate as a budget version, if you happen to have air already. But they tend to be rather wimpy for grinding and sawing.

My kitchen installer cut the granite slab with a regular 7 1/4" circular saw and didn't even connected it to a GFI circuit. They also form the bullnose and the undermount sink cutout with a regular 4 1/2" grinder, also not connected to the GFI circuit. 4 hours of grinding and no hearing protection. Unsafe but very skillful installers.

Those are nice but its a few hundred to a few thousand dollars each.

Wimpy because most compressors don't have the CFM including my 240V compressor.

If this is related to one of your earlier posts about cutting plaster indoors, wet cutting is very messy and you'll have to put plastic down everywhere. It's usually easier to deal with dry dust by using protection and a fan creating negative pressure. The wet sludge makes a mess that's harder to clean up. Use a GFI receptacle or GFI extension cord if you're going to be wet cutting and test it beforehand.

i bought one of the harbor freight tile cutters for about $50. it comes with a diamond coated blade that the bottom gets wet from the pan under the blade as it rotates. keeps the blade cooler so it will not heat up. also the dust mess is not as bad as a dry blade will be. gotta clean up the wet dust out of the bottom pan each time i use it if i do a lot of tile cutting.
