Tile grout removal
 
I need to remove some cracked tile grout. It there an easier way than using those hand-held grout saws? The blades only last about 5 minutes.

I use my Rockwell Ossilating saw with the diamond blade, works super.
If you do not own one of these saw it's the best thing since sliced bread. I used mine all day today cutting sheetrock, cutting out a plywood floor so it could be removed ( I used the ciruler saw to get as close as I could to the wall first). Cutting out old hardened floor glue.

When you need more blades for it check out Amazon.com. I found a pack of 15 blades for around $90.00. That's about $6.00 a blade, not almost $20.00 each at most stores.
I used mine today to cut some plastic tiles, cut off an old lead sewer coller, remove constrution adhesive, and I had a 50 year old P trap nut that just would not come off. I cut it in half in about 2 min..
