Cutting curves in floor tiles

I need to cut curves in floor tiles. I tried it with my rotozip and a carbide cutter but wore out the cutter very quickly. Anybody have a way to do this?

Sculpt it out with your wet saw, or a small 4" diamond blade mounted on an angle grinder.

They make a band saw for cutting tile, but I don't think you are willing to spend that kind of money!!!

There are tile cutters that will cut curves. I'm not sure if you'll be able to get them at a rental outfit, but if you had to cut a lot or you do design work for a living, it'd be worth it.

Let us know and we'll direct you to some sites.
