How To Use A Tile Cutter

Ceramic Tile Video

This video will teach you how to score and snap ceramic tile using a two rail tile cutter.

Tile cutters are designed to score and snap straight lines in ceramic tiles that have a thin porcelain coating on their surface. Stone, fully vitrified porcelain tiles, and some types of unglazed clay tiles may not cut properly with this type of cutter. You may need to use a wet saw depending on the type of tile you choose.

If the edges of the tile are to be exposed in your installation it is recommended that you use a sanding stone to dull the edges of your cuts before installing them.
