ceramic tile cutting

We are redoing our small entry in textured ceramic tiles. I only have 9 tiles that need to be cut... 4 straight, and 5 curved.

I would like to keep the price down, so renting a wet saw is a last resort. But, I have a 4" grinder... can I use that? Is there a special disk I need?

Thanks in advance!!!

How about free?

Mark the tiles where you want them cut, take them to Home Depot, and they will cut them for free (even if you didn't buy the tiles there). Depending on complexity, they may not be willing to do the curved ones.

a 4" grinder with dry cut diamond blade will do just fine,you may have trouble with some pocelain tile as they are extremely hard and tough to cut.Some of those box stores are now charging a dollar a cut which is still cheaper than renting a saw or the cost of the diamond blade
