"Had a couple of 400mm tiles to cut, had tried with my old tile bits and just broke tiles so brought this. Made cutting effortless (but a simple "this is how to use" sheet would have been helpful). Clean cuts, broke effortlessly, just wish I'd brought one sooner. Almost tempted to re-tile a whole floor now as it's so good & easy"
"this has been given some quite poor reviews, however I found it really good and easy to use (once I had slackened the handle a bit and lightly oiled the runners) No broken tiles. I could easily cut about 5mm off a tile..not a problem. Perhaps those people who were bending the rails were forcing it too much,,and had'nt loosened the handle a bit. Like any bit of kit, work with it, not against it!!"
"I bought this because my old one was too small so looked around and found this. A very reasonable price I thought, to cut large tiles. It took one broken tile to get the hang of it and I can now confidently cut my tiles to any size quickly and cleanly. One thing to note is it's light weight and does bend in the middle so when pressing down on the tile after scoring it press on the edge of the tile. Overall very happy with my purchase."
"I was disappointed by this tile cutter. I needed it to make diagonal cuts in 33 cm tiles. It is not a professional tool hence its very economical price.
The main problem was that the square edge against which the tile is pushed is not square; it is plastic and screwed to the base through oversize holes. It is best to check before cutting, the line of the cutting wheel against a pencil mark on the tile.
Having said that, it delivers a good scored line and every tile snapped easily along the line, so I finished my job."
"If you need something for a one off job this would suffice, however I would not recommend for a novice. Pretty simple to use however after cutting aprox 30 nr. 330x330 floor tiles it feel apart in my hands, not sure if i was pressing to hard but the runners that keep the cutting wheel in place are extremely flimsy and bent far to easily. Screwfix gave a full refund.
On reflection it probably failed due to user error, as a novice i was probably pressing down to hard, and in fairness all the cuts made were perfectly straight."
"I bought this tile cutter to lay floor tiles in my kitchen and it was struggling to break my tiles along the scribed line. The base wasn't very strong and I could clearly see it was flexing when applying pressure to break the tiles. I ended up returning it before I finished my tiling project."
"The worst thing I have purchased, it failed to meet expectations, its too short for a 400 tile and the pressure exerted on the wheel just lifts the two metal runners. Failed to cut 5mm thick tiles, I've wasted so many tiles, it didn't cut so just isn't up to purpose.. Give it a miss you'll be better if with a electric wheel tile cutter."
"The cutter is really weak so flexes when you put pressure on it to snap the tiles. Managed to break more tiles than it actually cut. Ended up having to return it after a couple of days. I would recommend that screwfix remove this item from their catalogue. If you must buy a tile cutter pay a little extra and get a better product."
"Bought this to cut some 200 x 250 6mm wall tiles. With no instructions in the box, I'm not sure there are any, I broke the first three tiles I needed. The whole thing flexes alarmingly and as soon you press down to break that exactly what happens except you have 6/7/8 pieces instead of 2. I would take it back if I hadn't used it, but I have. So I might as well have put £20 in the bin!! Perhaps I doing something wrong. I'll try and source some new cutters for my old cutter, 30 years old but won't score."
