        Wet saw problem Sign In/Join 
        posted
        I have a husky thd950L wet saw that stopped cutting a stone tile half way thru the cut. Water is getting to the blade. It's acting as if it's cutting the tile "dry" but I can clearly see water dripping onto the back end of the tile. If I try to gently force it thru, I can see the stone getting red hot where the saw is touching it. I blew thru the hose and it seems to be clear of debris. It seems like a water issue but I don't know what else to do short of dismantling the plastic tube.

        Could you be cutting to quickly? It is not a race when doing your cuts, but is sure is painstakingly slow sometimes.

        Sounds like the pump is not picking up the water. Sometimes there is a filter of sorts on the pump. If it gets clogged it will not pick the water up out of the tray. If it is not clogged then the pump is the issue. Maybe one of these will work.

        The wet stone 'dust' will pack everywhere. You need to clean out all the tubing plus the pump fairly frequently.

        The other possibility is that you wore through the diamond part of the cutting blade and are down to just steel. Take a close look at the edge - the diamond part is always slightly granular while a worn to steel blade is perfectly smooth.

        Thanks for the help. I think it could be a clogged pump or hose. I'll have to dismantle it tomorrow. I think the blade is ok as I can still feel the rough surface.
