The Gemini Taurus saw that we sell comes with the Mega Blade as it is able to cut a wide variety of products including tile, marble, granite and some glass.
Does this saw come with a water pump?

No this saw does not use a water pump instead the water is picked up by the blade from the basin.
How thick a material can you cut? Most tiles are 1/4 inch or less. Can you cut 1 inch thick material?

The Gemini Taurus 3 Tile Shaper Ring Saw is designed for thin material like stain glass and soft tile. If you try cut porcelain the blade will cut through the drive belt. The Gemini Revolution XT is the best option for thick material and porcelain.
I am interested in this for stained glass projects. How long does a blade usually last and where do you get a replacement blade and what is it's cost?

The life of the blade depends on the type and thickness of the material. Click here for Gemini Taurus 3 replacement blades

Taurus 3 Ring Saw Incredible
I bought this saw a few years ago and use it almost every day. I use 2 frozen water bottles drinking size like Ozarka. in it every time i power it up.i change the water about twice a week. Add a spot of liquid soap and TBS vinegar after water changes. i have gone through 3 Speed Blades and 1 Mega blade. one negative is the blade guide. i get the same life from my blades by using proper cutting techniques. Average thickness of glass is B-Cut Italian Smalti and Granite. The only things I've replaced are the red wheeled bearings, not the bearings just the wheels. And somehow my top cover clips worn so it doesn't close so i just use a light weight clamp works fine. I really love this saw. very well made. I find the use of a thin plexi glas over the table with several drainage holes, really makes cutting small pieces accurate and if you use the red sticker over the top of the table, it just peels off and gets in the way. I use the accessory kit with the straight edge and lamp angle to cut diamond strips, and keystone shapes fast! Love it!
It has worked as design. I am pleased with the performance. I have some difficulty changing blades.
Will definitely purchase again!!
I am very happy with my purchase, after doing my research long and hard with Contractors direct, I found this Company to be my choice. The customer service is awesome, all the parts I need I can go to one site for anything I need, AND the prices are very affordable. Shipping and packaging was perfect. Thank you, i truly love my new saw😊very happy customer!!
Not good enough

When it works it works great but it breaks far too often and the replacement parts are expensive, especially the blades. The quality of the belts is subpar but you have to buy their belts. The belt tightener is not strong enough to keep proper tension and the belt has a habit of jumping off.
Great for Stained Glass
Contractor's Direct had this saw for far less than any craft store, plus I got free shipping. It was shipped the same day, and arrived in 2 days to North Carolina. I purchased this on a recommendation from a friend for stained glass work. It greatly speeds up my inside cuts. The finish is smooth and requires just a really quick once over on the grinder to prepare the glass for foiling. So far I am very happy with it. I would recommend it to anybody that wants to do detailed stained glass work.
