Mary Ann, guess I don't get the picture with your last question. This is pretty simple and straight forward.

I meant to have the stone sitting on top of the tile (vs sitting at the end of a piece of wood) as it is fed through the saw. The portion of tile that the rock is not on, would be what is clamped in the vise. I felt if there was any pressure exerted on the rock from the process of running through the blade, the stress on the glue joint would be less this way and the stone might be less likely to pop off and damage a blade. Granted, you would lose some of the material next to the tile  because of the glue, unless you used the Elmer's or waterglass.
