I read on the diy.com website you can use a coping saw to make odd cuts. I was wondering if this is true and what type of blade would work? I'm having problems cutting around the door frames and I don't want to cutt into the frames themselves to make space for a tile. Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thank You!

You can buy a carbide rod saw in most tile shops or departments. It works ok on wall tile...but is a complete waste of time and money on floor tile...it's just too hard.

The easiest and least expensive soulution is to rent a diamond blade water saw from a tile shop or rental store..probably $35 a day?

And undercut the door trims. It's the professional way of doing things.
