"I bought this in 2007 to do ceramic floor tiling in the hallway and kitchen . In my haste to finish i forgot to use my ear defenders for the last few cuts. I now suffer white noise due to my impatience. Yes they are noisy . I did a bathroom two years ago using porcelain tiles and found it hard going,i no longer switch the cutter on without my ear defenders in place. Last week i did another bathroom using porcelain tiles ,, i used a tile cutter and only used the diamond cutter for the cut outs. My diamond blade gave out and i replaced it with this Marcrist CK650SF Diamond Tile Blade 115 x 22.2mm (65604) This blade cut is far better than the original and faster..so fast i am thinking i had no use for the tile cutter..maybe? This machine owes me nothing , what i would call a good buy."
"I bought this tile cutter to do my bathroom, never used one before and was a bit sceptical if they were worth the money but yes they are. This one was perfect, recommended by the salesman in ScrewFix Orpington it worked perfectly. I definitely recommend this item."
"Bought this to tile our kitchen and it cuts well and is really easy to use. The only down side is how loud it is but I don't mind it cuts so quickly and so precise, I would recommend this to any diyers"
"I bought this a year ago. I have used it over the last 12 months to install a 100 square metre floor, so about 40 lineal metres of cut tiles. It works as well as it did out of the box, excellent. Just about to buy one for my Dad. Lucky him!"
"I bought this saw based on the previous reviews and the price!
Tiling is on my most hated list of DIY tasks, I've messed around before scribing/snapping tiles and what not, I've wasted more tiles than I've managed to stick to the walls.
Anyway this saw made the whole thing bearable.
Make no mistake it's a noisy piece of kit, I'm guessing it's the gearbox that screams away, there are stickers and warnings that the noise is normal so just ignore it and carry on.
It cuts really well. I tried to buy a spare blade at the time of purchase but my local branch was out of stock and to be honest I think it would be a long time before you would need one, provided you keep the sump topped up with water to keep flushing and lubricating the diamond blade (only holds about a mug full).
I didn't have much success with the mitre guide, it's a bit sticky to use, I found it easy enough just to draw a line on the tiles and cut by eye.
Clean-up at the end of the session is easy enough, I just took it out to the yard hose and flushed the sump out, it's surprising how much sand you get collecting in the bottom, I would think if you were using it hard then flushing it out a couple of times during the shift would be a good idea.
All in all a great wee saw and well worth the cash."
"I brought this to cut 10mm thick Travertine floor tiles. I was not sure that it would be robust enough but my concerns were totally unnecessary. I have cut in the region of 150 tiles so far and the performance of this product has been excellent"
"Bought this saw for a bathroom project. Used it for one day cutting about 10 tiles. The motor stopped working. Returned it next day to Newport branch. service was excellent, saw exchanged in 5 mins. Used it for 2 weeks now, good quality, clean cuts, no further problems."
"Surprisingly good for a budget tile saw. Seems to have plenty of power to cut through all the tiles I've given it, including hard floor tiles as well as wall tiles. Precise shaping is also possible with a little ingeneuity. Gentle enough to take off tiny slivers for infilling round apertures and in corners. I also have a large radial arm tile saw but this little beauty is more convenient and easier to use for small jobs. Light and portable - can be carried around in one hand."
"I exchanged the Titan Cutter for this one as I was very dissatisfied with it. The Vitrex is smaller and very capable of cutting either freehand or by using the easily adjustable parallel fence Glad I swapped and appreciated the Screwfix cooperation in doing so."
"This is a very good tile cutter, only fault I found is the cutting of 500 mm tiles, the max size of cutting with the built in gauge is 200 mm even that's a struggle. Trying to get a spare diamond blade."
