What is the best method for making non-linear cuts of Avaire tile so that the plastic base does not present a problem when using the multiple cut method with a wet saw. I am trying to make a circular cut around a toilet drain.

Dear Fred,
What a GREAT question!
Our technical advisor suggests using a 4" angle grinder with a dry cut diamond tipped blade.

Please let us know if you need additional assistance.

I received a very timely phone response to my inquiry from Mr. Fuller in which he recommended the 4" right-angle grinder with a diamond tip blade. This worked great for making the circular cut. Additionally, since I had a only a small number of straight cuts, I was able to use the grinder for all the straight cuts as well, thus saving the need to obtain a wet saw. Thanks for your great advice.
