Drill attachment, saw blade attachment for electric hand drill?
Hi, renovating and I have to cut out some flooring in my bathroom around the bathtub. I can’t use a circular saw, jig saw or recip saw because I can’t get close enough as the tub is tapered in at the bottom along the floor.
Does anyone know if they sell small circular saw blades like 3 inches that fit on Electric Hand Drills? I figure I can hold the drill flat on its side and cut the floor with that. thanks

the best thing you could do is to get a grinder & cut the floor w/ that so you can get as close as possible to the tub. They make all kinds of different blades for a grinder. Is what we ended up using to do the same project & it worked out great.

Take a look at a fein saw. Bosch makes a cheaper version that can be picked up at lowes.

Here is a cheap version of the Fein Multi-Master. It’s a tool made for exactly this.

they make cutting wheels that fit onto drills, you can find them at most hardware stores
How is the best way to cut a ceramic tile is a ‘U’ shape?
I want to cut a ceramic tile to fit round an electric socket. I have found the tiles where have to cut an ‘L’ shape easy, using my electric tile cutter, but with a ‘U’ shape I will need to make a cut in the centre of the tile. How is the best way to do this? I also have a tile scorer/snapper and a small hand saw for tiles. Thanks

You have to take a grease pencil or lead pencil and mark the U cut on the tile then take tile nippers , pliars looking tool with two jaws and a sharp blade and nip it out a bit at a time..go to the hardware store and ask for tile nippers…This is what they use to do cuts like this

I have used an abrafile for this type of work. It is a blade which fits in a hacksaw. The “blade” has a circular cross-section and bits of diamond or something all around, so it will cut in any direction, not like an ordinary sawblade which cuts in one direction.

I have to agree with the rotary tool with a ceramic cutting bit

First cut the two parallel lines with your electric cutter.
then you can score the connecting line and snap it off.
