Re: Plunge cutting tools
To be honest, tile is not my thing, so I've stayed out of what you should and shouldn't be doing. I would like to comment on something Jack just said though.

Once the subflooring is out, then the rest of the joists can be bolster to prepare for the tile.

From there you can easily sneak under each side to deal with whatever supports you're going to add under the walls before removing the flooring out to the walls.
I suffer from CDO ... Its like OCD, but in alphabetical order, LIKE IT SHOULD BE!!!
