Then thereís making the vector

You could do that easier with a tile saw. You just make all of the parallel cuts, and snap off the "fingers".

I have a dewalt wet saw . You know I may just experiment, and just try making several parallel lines . May be a bit meticulous, but Iíll give it a try .
Great idea Gerry

I donít always insulate , but when I do .
Ok ,I never insulate

A ring of plumbers putty makes a good dam too. Some diamond bits can be used without water but it depends on what ways used to bond the diamonds with. With wall tiles a Rotozip with carbide tile bit works slick but it won’t work on floor tiles which are much harder.

Someone I consider a master woodworker once told me that a master woodworker is not someone who never makes mistakes. He is someone who is able to cover them up so that no one can tell.

I've seen Brian and his wife's mosaic's first hand; they've done a LOT of them! Pretty amazing; i wouldn't have the patience.
(Did I mention that they're big?)

I’m just assuming you’d get a better life out of the cutter as opposed to dry ?
The set I bought were pretty cheap, so I thought it may be a good idea to help them along . I need to cut two 2-3/4” holes , and possibly more if I screw up . I have this feeling they get you threw once and that’s it .
Ok I just read the info on amazon , and it says to use water . So I guess I’ve got the right idea , but perhaps overkill

Just use a wax ring (toilet seal) for a doughnut seal, fill with water when using diamond core bit.

Latex Caulk is real easy. Takes a second to install, sticks well, no rolling in the hand to form a bead, holds enough water for drilling. and wipes off with a rag with a swipe. The water drains away when the cut is through and the caulk is wet and wipes of easily.

I have duct seal also, it’s very similar to plasticine. I could have easily rolled it into a dam and stuck it on there . Maybe this was a dumb idea lol

Actually I have to cut an outside section off one tile , so my contraption will work good for that
