"Purchased this item from Screwfix with delivery arriving the next day as usual. I bought it because I have a floor tiling project to do and as the tiles are 410mm square my old Plasplug cutter was to small.
Have used it several times now and found the unit easy to use. It simply does what it says on the box. The breaking system is particularly good especially after using my old cutter. The only problem I have found is with its accuracy. The scoring wheel does not quite centre on the fixed measuring gauge. However, this can be easily compensated for. When you consider that you can spend several hundred pounds for a similar item I can put up with this slight drawback. Good value for money and recommended for the DIY'er"
"I used this tile cutter to cut 330mm porcelain tiles. The cutting action was smooth and breaking the tiles was simple.Thats the good points but the bad points are the built in guide dose not cut the tiles straight and the angle guide is also not acurate.If you were laying tiles diagonal and you wanted to cut lots of tiles in half diagonaly you would have to compensate each time rather than just place your tile in the cutter and score.Bit of a pain but hey a bad workman blames his tools.At the end of the day if you no what your doing it cuts tiles."
"I bought this in my local Screwfix store because I needed to cut some tiles slightly larger on one side than my similar PlasPlugs cutter could take. Being of a similar design I was hoping it would prove as excellent as the PlasPlugs one. The Vitrex one flakes the glazing back 2mm from the edge of the cut in an almost continuous ragged line of semicircles. Furthermore when I press down at the end of the cut, nothing happens. The tiles will just about fit the PlasPlugs one for the snapping action and it snaps them with no problem after scoring with the Vitrex cutter. I have been using the PlasPlug cutter for the shorter side of these tiles with no problems and get a very clean cut with only occasional flakes of 0.5mm. The main difference in design seems to be the large diameter cutting wheel and harder foam pads on the Vitrex cutter. I will be returning it to the store tomorrow for a refund and buying the larger PlasPlugs one which Screwfix don't stock."
