I do however, plan on following up on this in my next post. So be sure to check that out by clicking here. In this post I will also have some video that will show you how to cut porcelain tile. These videos will give you some great tips on how I use each of them. I use a tile nipper a lot. These are great to use when a small piece needs to be cut off of a tile. I first score the tile with my tile cutter. Than I use the tile nipper to break the small piece off. When this happens I also use the tile nipper to break the rest off.
I have been installing for many years now and I have tried many tile nippers. This would be the angle grinder. This is going to be a tool that you would use to cut multiple types of cuts-. I use this tool a lot! This is also a reasonable priced tool. The reason is, because it is FAST. It really saves a lot of time using this cutter. I use a Rubi TR which is a great cutter. It cuts tile big and small and up to a 17 x 17 tile on a diagonal.
Here is what it looks like —. This is new to them and a wise choice. I recommend Rubi because they are easy to use and they work great. I know it will seem to be a little expensive to buy this, but I would not buy any other brand. My advice is not to buy a tile cutter if you do not want to spend the money.
Rent a tile saw! Practice, practice and more practice! Buy a few extra tile to practice cutting. If the tile you bought is expensive, than buy a few tiles that are on sale and practice with those. Let the cutter do the work. The key to this is an even score and the result will be a clean cut. There are many tools that you need to install tile.
My Project Planner-Tile Edition. Oh wow. Joe, thanks for the comprehensive guide. I have never used a tile cutter but I wish to use one in future projects. I assume that there are other tools that could be beneficial in putting down a new floor. Many Thanks Joe! You are a very good tutor. Thanks again. Joe I really enjoyed your videos and I am inspired to try cutting a hole for a sink in a 32 x 32 pocelain tile. Is this feasible? Yes that can be done. Will the hole be cut out in just one tile or do multiple tiles need to be cut?
First time using an angle grinder. I am looking for a way to make a straight cut on tile already on the wall it is from with mud bed and wire. Not sure if the diamond wheels on a grinder will produce a good cut or not. Please let me know what you think. This is looking like a good plan on paper so far versus tearing out the entire wall. Old sunken porcelain coated steel tub is dangerous to use as you have to step down into it plus it has rusted out.
An angle grinder is going to be your only option without just just tearing off tile to the measurement you need. This is going to be very difficult to do without making an ugly cut. Hey Joe, Thanks for the video on how to cut tile around toilet flange. After watching your video I gave myself 1 practice try and then completed the cuts using my DeWalt grinder.
It turned out great!! I had to replace a bathroom sink in an existing tile setting. The mounting hole was not close to being round, and surprise! I tried various files, but far and away the best was a shoe rasp, which I have always used solely on wood. It worked great on the tile, cutting the hard glaze easily, while gradually removing the clay brick; within 15 minutes I had very close to a perfect circle, and the newer slightly wider sink slipped right in.
If you have a need to trim an existing installation of ceramic tile, I encourage you to try a shoe rasp. Excellent that was really useful. I have been struggling with a wet wheel cutter and I can see the angle grinder option is much preferable. Which tool should be used for faster and easier cuts. Trudy, The best tool for this situation is going to be a wet saw. It will give you the cleanest cut and it is going to be the easiest way with what you need.
Do you have access to a saw? Thanks Joe. Cuts come out pretty good. Slight chipping. My question is: what about cutting an inside corner on the existing counter top? He do you deal with that? Thanks in advance! Thanks for your help. I have lurked for many years until I met John himself during a breakfast at Total Solutions Plus this past October and others at the table guilted me into no longer lurking.
Hopefully I can help others moving forward. Welcome Nick. I have a Rubi rail saw and it serves me very well , but didn't test it in continuous use as commercial projects. Did try the Raimondi one and it is a great saw. Moving the saw , set it up can be easy and it doesn't require any built of any sorts. I am sure you can install a grinder attachment to the rail cutters and do the cuts , but just managing the dust, setting the tile right , etc. Sigma 3E2M tile cutter 51inch cut capacity, or a 3F2M 60 inch cut.

I didn't know you could get a snap cutter that large. My largest snap cutter is a Tomecanic Supercut that rips 35". Crazy that it is just about obsolete given all the 36" planks we've installed recently.
Are you able to get it? I have to see if the supplier has any in stock. If they do, I see no reason why we couldn't get one. Not for anything but I like Steve's advice on this one. Don't know about yinz guys but I get nervous trying to snap a large tile If it breaks you just wasted alot of square footage.
Most of my mainly bathroom shower projects usually don't have that much extra tile to practice on Heres a job that didn't allow much, and cutting a giant "E" for the niche was a bit nerve racking as I broke two tile trying to cut it.
