Tiles can be expensive, so buying a tile cutter that will enable you to complete a neat and accurate job the first time around is essential. Having an efficient and effective tile cutting machine will not only make your job a whole lot easier but will also help you to achieve a professional result. So, what are you waiting for? Check out our range below.
A choice of Tile Cutter machines
There are several tile cutting machines on the market today. The best one for you will depend on:
how often you intend to use the tile cutter
the type of tile to be cut
So, will you benefit from a powered or manual tile cutter?
Manual tile cutters
The way a manual tile cutting machine works is straightforward. You simply move a wheel along a guide, scratching the surface of the tile and weakening the cutting line. Then, applying more force, use the cutter to go over the line for a second time and you should end up with a perfectly-sized tile. If you’re a DIYer and only need to cut a few tiles – either for the kitchen, bathroom or flooring – you can’t go wrong with a manual tile cutter. Both easy to use and inexpensive, it’s handy to have for simple home repair tasks.
Electric tile cutters
Electric tile cutters are invaluable for projects that require thicker and larger format tiles. These use extremely sharp diamond blades to cut through ceramic, porcelain and stone tiles and are capable of straight line and mitred cuts. Though more expensive than their manual counterparts, electric tile cutters are the most versatile and will significantly reduce user fatigue. They are ideal if you need to cut a large number of tiles and are, arguably, the best tool for professional ceramic tile cuts.
We must add that these ZIPPERtile cutter machines will take some getting used to – and must be used correctly to prevent hazards.
Wet tile cutters
Typically sat on a water table which helps to make the cut smoother and neater, whilst protecting the blade and helping it to last longer. As such, wet tile cutter machines keep things cool and reduce the friction levels endured by the blade and tile.
