Cutting an accent tile already installed on the wall
I have purchased a house and they installed a textured accent tile around the perimeter of the bathroom and now I would like to install a glass shower wall.   The problem is I can't locate any additional tile and I need to cut the existing tile in place on the wall to notch it for the fixed and sliding glass panel.   Any suggestions on the best way to do this?   On the off chance that any of you know of sources for this tile...   Inalco #1725 color "Nuez"  4x8" Thanks in advance! -James
Dear JTALVY:
Cutting an accent tile already installed on the wall

Sorry about the delay in getting back to you, to busy, and that's not a valid excuse; however, the solution is rather simple. Buy, borrow or rent a 4" angle grinder with a tile cutting dry diamond blade. Wear saftey glasses and cut into the the accent tile to accomodate the width of the shower door panel. The tool spins at 11,000 rpm so must have a good grip on it. NEVER wear work gloves while using this tool. A Router Speed reducer can slow the grinder down to a more managable 4,000 rpm. Wood Workers Wearhouse has it in 20 amps for under $40.00.  Good for many other projects where speed reduction means ease or safety..... Armen Tavy
