Ryobi P580K 18-Volt 4" Wet/Dry Tile Saw
If you're like us, you saw this image and thought, "sweet, finally a circular saw that comes with its own roll of toilet paper!" But unfortunately, tool technology isn't that advanced yet. What you're looking at is the latest in Ryobi's 18-volt li-ion line, a wet/dry tile saw. The roll of toilet paper is a water bottle that you fill and *boom* wet saw capabilities.
The tool has a on/off toggle for the water but in all other respects it appears to function like the 18-volt circular saw that Ryobi has had on the market for a couple years.
This one looks really useful to us. Having that kind of portability with the built-in water dispenser just seems like a tile/stone guy's fantasy. Just think of what this thing could do with a blue stone walkway or a slate floor...
The saw costs about $200 and that's for the saw, one battery, the blade, and a charger.

FYI - this is a One+ tool, and most of those DON'T come with a battery included. It doesn't specify one way or the other on the HD site, so Caveat Emptor.
I have a handful of one+ tools, and I'm a big fan. It is a common complaint though, that the handyman unfamiliar with the series will end up running back to the store in frustration because he didn't notice the small warning on the box "Battery sold separately"
